jordan called last night to correct me, and i knew he was right,
so this boy got two days worth of birthdays!
today there was a trip to the pet store,
and some time in the garden, however our walk
was cut short due to fireworks in the neighborhood.
today he is eight. he is wise and so sweet
and i am not sure what i would do without him!
Because of the dog’s joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift. It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born. What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass? What would this world be like without dogs? ~ Mary Oliver
