Why You need a Dog.




A dog gives you reason to run like a 6 yr old kid through the neighbor's hayfield and then flop down in the tall grasses and just lay there, while the dog licks your face and asks you to please...

'Let's play chase again!'

A dog will flop down on your lap as you try to watch the sunset and then sit quietly lean into you as she pretends to admire it also.
She pants and she looks like she is smiling.
She slobbers on your already grass stained clothing and you can lean down and wash your hands in the evening dew collecting on the hay grasses.

You can tell her your secrets and she swears that she WILL never ever tell anyone else.  Nope.
Not
Ever

When you get up in the sunset's afterglow and hold up the old lead rope and click it.
She looks at you as if you ARE the most interesting and important person on earth.

And when you hug her later.
You know you are.

Thanks for another nice evening Dixie.

Lovely post, you sum up the beauty of our most faithful friends so well. If humans could be more like dogs we'd all do better :-)
