Dogs are like the brightest star, blazing through the darkness
of night, and they are like a sun that outshines the day.
They burn so intensely, so brightly. And for some, that blaze
is for only a short time on this planet. Well, at least they get to
spend more time in Heaven if their stay here is not as long as we'd
like it to be.

In nature there must always be a balance. Perhaps their stay is
weighed with the goodness that fills them. It is said one cannot get
enough of a good thing -- dogs are that good thing to me.
I think our furry family members have the capacity for deep
compassion, love, and concern for beings of all types, human and
otherwise. I believe it goes beyond human understanding -- because
what they give comes from a heart that is pure, a spirit that is
guileless, and a soul that operates on a level higher than anything
close to human.

I am convinced dogs unfurl their wings when we are not looking.
Have you ever noticed an expression they have, especially when they
smile, that gives hint to something wondrous and grand? As if they
have the most incredible gift they are hiding behind their back but
you can tell they want so very much to show you what it is.
Well, when I see that expression I could swear I feel the
flutter of their wings in my heart.

Dogs can touch and mold our hearts, our spirits, and our minds.
And in so doing they bring us a little bit closer to embracing,
within ourselves, the goodness they are.
Which is grander than any concept of humanity.
