Wonderful picture, Robert, and wonderful poem. King is bringing you a gift - and he's happy knowing you will like it

Always wondered why my girls always try to find something to give to you, especially when you've been away, if only for some minutes

Great poem. Someone once wrote:

"My goal is to become the sort of person my dog is sure that I am."

Ha! How true. Dogs seem to have a knack of keeping us in line!

Did you get another dog? I lost Kavik, my Husky-Shepherd cross in 1994. I waited 14 years before I would allow myself to give my heart to another animal. After four years with King, I only regret that I waited so long. He has truly enriched my life. Thanks for your reply.

I find that dogs are more like members of the family and I recall how difficult it was to lose Willy. They do enrich one's life. We do have a water colour portrait of Willy that hangs in place of pride in our house.
