the enricher

ushering in a special calm that no one human can ignore, even the most cut-throat murderer can be humbled by the gaze of that which has been referred to time & time again as “man’s best friend.” ode to the dog, over 400 million strong, making it easier to cope through these days, meandering with us through this stale existence, enriching, enriching, enriching, filling our lives with smiles that need not apologize, that need not be judged, that need not feel obligated to anything but the unconditional love that comes from a bond between us, wo/man & canine. never betrayed by your dog, you know what trust can be, never thwarted against by your dog, you know what peace can be, never angered, never made to feel less, never to feel unconnected, never to feel unwanted, you know what life can be--- all made possible through these beautiful animals that we take care of, that take care of us. fortunate are those who have taken it upon themselves, to allow a dog to join them on the walk down this brief, brief, path.
