My Dogs

My dogs, Kirby and Chia, are my daytime pals—keeping me company during the day. They lick my tears when I cry, stick to me like Velcro and offering a furry, comforting body to pet or snuggle up with when I’m feeling stressed. They bring me toys, encouraging me to play and toss my problems away if only for a little while.

Kirby often lies on top of my head and neck, providing a sense of grounding and stability when I feel disorganized and my senses are in overload – like my computer system short-circuiting and ready to crash. Chia has an uncanny ability to know when I’m at my lowest emotional level. She will lie next to me and not leave me until she senses that I’m feeling better.

They are the embodiment of my favorite definition of a friend: A friend is one who knows where you’ve been, accepts where you are and gently invites you to grow. They are always around to let me feel loved, understood and accepted unconditionally.

    my dogs have definitely kept me sane and provided company in the isolation i sometimes feel. especially my 2 older dogs who have now crossed over. there are so many days when i feel they are the only ones who totally accept me and they make me feel safe as well!

    Being involved in dog rescue, and having two rescued dogs myself…I often wondering who was rescued, me or them? They fill my life with so many benefits and rewards in exchange for a home to call their own. They have taught me some important things about life; live in the moment, enjoy the simple things and life is much better when you wear a smile. I transport dogs coming from horrendous abusive situations and in various stages of neglect. When I look in the rear view mirror, and see those big dog grins and wagging tails…I am inspired by their ability to bounce back and just enjoy the moment. Dogs don’t live in the past, and neither should we.

    Dogs are so wise and caring, and have so much to teach us if we just step out of our human arrogance. Thank you for your very valuable perspective. And for your work in dog rescue.
