The relationships with my dogs down through the years were spiritual – their spirits and mine in continual connection. Those relationships weren’t financial, intellectual, or sexual – they were loving. The unconditional love I felt from them was ongoing. There were times when, literally, my life was saved by my dog. This is in addition to thousands of moments of emotional give and take. I’ve been without a dog for several years because my life doesn’t allow me to give the attention and time for that relationship to be fair to the dog. One day – not too far in the future – I’ll have another dog. I can’t wait.
