The joy of being dog
Falling into the joy
of being dog
all my judgments and expectations,
all my fear and anger
all my shame and blame
I take my human collar off
release my inhibitions
i let go
I am dog
A simple, pure expression of joy
As simple as a ball or toy
I play. I love.
I am grateful for…
A warm bed, a bowl of water, a meal
A pat on the head, A kiss
A snuggle in the grass, a nap
A bark at the moon, a walk in the sun
A splash in the water. A shady tree
I love to listen to the song of birds
And the symphony of crickets
I delight in my master’s voice
I am enchanted by a world of sight, sound and smell
But my people are always busy running around
Chasing their tails
If they could only sit and stay
Scratch my belly
I would shower them with kisses
Therefore I am

If I could put a price tag on a smile..
Dogs walk by with their people
Scanning the artwork displayed on my table.
It makes them smile.
They make me smile...
The Doggie Doodles.
If I could put a price tag on a smile . . .
I would be rich!
Oh, but I am.
The ability to make a person smile
Is my gift to the world
And the world's gift to me.
As long as my God allows me
The breath to be
The faith to see
I always have what I need.
