Little Dog.... how I love you.... so brave, in this confusing world.... so tender, when you give your heart.... so forgiving, toward a species who have already treated you with cruelty and disrespect...

There is no honour higher than the trust awarded me by you.... You, who are so often misunderstood, yet remain patient with a species that often thinks it is the only one with a right to live unthreatened...

Thank you for your friendship, and thank you for allowing me to learn from you... whose heart is as honest and true as I wish my human one could be... Without guile, you tell me your truth, and reveal your vulnerability....

Oh, noble little friend, I bow to you, and feel gratitude more than I can ever express.
Thank you for rescuing me.
I adore you.

For the Birds

Sing, all you little birds!
Sing for joy,
Sing for Life,
For I have made a water bowl,
for water sweet, and water clear,
to wet your whistles, thirsty ones,
And worthy of your magic plume.
