    The years go so very fast and before you know it that romping pup is
    old and grey muzzled and they have sat by our sides while we read, watch TV,
    and work on our computers. Every so often they come and lay their heads in
    our laps, toss our elbow with their muzzle or gaze into our eyes and wait for
    us to notice them.

    Take a moment now to remember what they mean to you:
    I am your dog, and I have a little something I’d like to whisper in your ear. I
    know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have children to
    raise. It always seems like you are running here and running there, often much
    too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life.

    Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my dark
    brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The
    gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle.

    You smile at me; I see love in your eyes. What do you see in mine? Do you see a
    spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world?
    A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrong doing for just a
    simple moment of your time? That is all I ask. To slow down, if even for a few
    minutes, to be with me.

    So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that screen,
    of others of my kind, passing. Sometimes we die young and oh so quickly,
    sometimes so suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat.
    Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to know
    until the very end, when we look at you with grizzled muzzles and cataract
    clouded eyes.
    Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep,
    to run free in a distant land.

    I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you
    will shed the water from your eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills
    their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just
    “one more day ” with me. Because I love you so, your sorrow touches my spirit
    and grieves me.

    We have NOW, together. So come, sit down here next to me on the floor,
    and look deep into my eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and deep
    enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as “alpha” or as
    “trainer” or even “Mom or Dad,” come to me as a living soul and stroke my
    fur and let us look deep into one another’s eyes and talk. I may tell you
    something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or I may tell you something
    profound about myself, or even life in general.

    You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such
    things with. Someone very different from you, and here I am. I am a dog,
    but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and I can revel in the
    differences of our spirits and souls.

    I do not think of you as a “Dog on two feet” — I know what you are and who
    you are. You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still.

    Now, come sit with me, on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow
    down if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper into my ears.
    Speak with your heart, with your joy, and I will know your true self.
    We may not have tomorrow, but we do have today, and life is oh so very short.

    So please–come sit with me now and let us share these precious moments we
    have together.

    – Love, on behalf of canines everywhere.
    Your Dog
