They teach us love and loyalty

Published 11:28am Friday, March 30, 2012

Dogs are like another nation or culture with their own compartmentalized language, emotions and customs. How is that they compel us to laugh and yet induce us to tears?  Dogs are loyal. They are not ambivalent.  They don’t hold grudges.  If a dog loves you he doesn’t care how much money you have or what you look like.  The world would be so sopping beige without the humor of the straightforward, open, innocent loyalty of a dog.
Police department: Take a chance. Come see me. I promise to serve you faithfully. You will not be disappointed, and you will save some money you’d spend on those fancy imports. Call me at 828-863-4444 at my condo in the Foothills Humane Society, (find a dog, Magic).  Thank you from the bottom of my big heart.
Thanks for listening.
