“I am your dog”

Thanks to Colin for this, a reminder that sometimes we take our best friends for granted.

A Dog's Life ... and mine ... and yours!

Every now and then I come across a comment,  a short story, a poem, or some other expression of life … that makes an emotional impact. I tend to save such writings because, who knows, there may come an opportunity to share such writings in the hope that a reader/listener may also experience an emotional impact.  What follows is such a piece, and it is attributed to a J. D. Ellis.

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 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…

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Beautiful. To me, that sums it up. When everything is crap and stress, I can just sit beside by kitty and stroke his soft fur. He purrs, asking nothing more from me. I don’t have to be anything more special to him than that. Doesn’t matter what I’ve achieved or failed to in people-world. Everything is fine right here. ❤️

  3. 😥 WAHHHHH!!! Oh that is beautiful. If only we, as humans, would learn to do that. How much richer, how much calmer, how much more wonderful our lives could be. I admit to wiping a tear or two away and now Pudge and Ziggy are putting their paws on my leg and looking at me with concern. Last night I watched a film entitled “A Dog’s Way Home” and while I found the narration irritating and the mistakes glaring (the dog in question was a hound of some lineage, NOT a pit bull; one character in the film insisted on referring to her that way) I still wept. If you haven’t seen that film and plan to, have some hankies. Pull your lovely Maggie close and hug her. ❤
