Life Is Good

Remember when you were little and life was exciting? Everything was new and smelled so good. Waking up was fun. Breakfast couldn’t come soon enough. Who knew what the day would hold. I’m four now but I still think life is lots of fun. Turns out my name means blessing or happiness. It comes...

Happy Birthday Little Brother

It’s April First. My brother Zag was born on Fool’s Day. I think that’s why he’s such a silly little fellow. Here he is with his ball at the beach. He can’t really swim, but he sure can splash a lot. Zag is a great guy. I’m glad he’s my brother. He has responsibilities....

A call came yesterday from the shelter where I did time. It was the animal control officer who seized me from my previous owner. My new people wanted to know my history and had asked to talk to the officer who investigated my case. The officer said there was a complaint that animals were...

She Loves Me

My affection for her is unseemly. She has become the light which illuminates my dark world. There is no fool like an old fool and I am both old and a fool. I love her in a way I have never experienced before. She is our pack leader so I must share her with...

Earlier this week I was officially declared a Final Refuge dog by Old Dog Haven. It took a little while to sink in. That means I get to stay at Asherpark forever, as long as I live. I won’t be put up for adoption. I will grow old and die in a place I...

We’re Gonna Keep Him

I talked it over with Tess. We decided we have to keep Jack. He’s goofy in love with our mom. He cries if he doesn’t know where she is and since he’s deaf, he has trouble finding her. If I’m not busy with the ball, I’ll run along side Jack so he knows to...

Beauty Is Deeper Than Fur

When I was young people used to stop me on the street ’cause they thought I was good looking. I never understood why looks were so important. I come from a mixed family. Some of my siblings are black and white, some are red. I was the only blue merle of the litter. I...

Tess won’t tell me if she’s a Democrat or Republican. I don’t really care one way or the other, I’d just like to know what she thinks. So I brought the Republican stuffie out of the toy box and placed it on her side. I thought if she was a Democrat the stuffie would work...

The End

Now comes the part of my story I so regret having to tell. I did not fear to lose my life. After all, I had been a shelter dog, a stray, a throw away. I’ve said before I had few expectations about my place in this world. But in the end, in my wildest...
