I cannot love enough this dog of mine
this Miles whose head lies in my lap
whose weighty chest presses on my thigh
whose paw rests warmly on my arm.
I cannot.  And yet when my Henry died
I said Never again.  I’ll not do this again.
The loss is too large.
And here I am, this beautiful unflappable
love of a dog lying heavily across my lap
innocently shoving himself into 
every crack of my heart.

  1. I’ve said never again also-but really cannot envision my life without dogs.

  2. Nor can I. Dogs are Life.
