the ones who left me,but I wasn't good enough...for they didn't want me
will you add to my baggage ?will you help me unpack?
Or will you just look at my things and take me right back ?
Do you have time to help me unpack ?
to put away my baggage, to never repack?
I pray that you do,I'm so tired you see,but I do come with baggage
Will you still want me?

Do not weep for me when I am gone
For I have friends in the great beyond.
All the little ones I used to feed
WIll come to me in my time of need.
They will purr and bark in great delight,
And I will hold and hug them tight.
Oh what a great day that will be
When my furry friends all welcome me.
by Gloria Stradtner

Because they are so gregariously sociable, and because they consider us to be their pack leaders, dogs crave our attention.
Being touched is soothing and reassuring for dogs, just as it is for us. Stroking your dog reduces its blood pressure, its heart rate, and its skin temperature. It calms its sense of arousal. Dependent dogs demand attention most, but even dominant, aggresive canines solicit attention from a strong human leader.
