80 He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant. His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me? whenever? wherever - in case I need him. And I expect I will, as I always have. He is just my dog. ~ Gene Hill
81 "I went out to the hazel wood,
Because a fire was in my head,
And cut and peeled a hazel wand,
And patted my faithful doggie's head;
And when white moths were on the wing,
And moth(-)like stars were flickering out,
I flung the stick into a stream
For good old Laddie to fetch out.
When he had laid it on the ground,
I went to throw it back again,
But he spotted something in the brush
And stared as if it had called his name.
It was a forgotten old tennis ball,
Grey with age, and languishing there;
I threw it hard, and Laddie, happy, ran
Chasing his old love through the morning air.
With apologies to W. J. Keats"

The gold leaves are falling
The dogs bark and chase them
Though their masters are calling
The cats sit on windowsills

All the dogs, cats, birds and bunnies
That we all love and treasure
Are so glad for their warm homes, now,
When north wind brings cold weather"

94 "Walking thru the row of cages,
puppy eyes and sad dog faces,
I saw staring at me,
my life saver,
My Guardian Angel.
It was fairly obvious that she needed me,
How much I needed her,
I couldn't see,
that hot June day,
I pointed and said, ""Kia is the one.""
We took her home,
the months flew by,
doggy kisses and walks outside.
If only I could see,
it truely was,
a ""match made in Heaven.""
But I was sick,
the cause unknown.
In pain I laid,
until one day,
the angel approached,
ears laid back,
and pointed with her nose.
And as the anesthetic slowly took over,
my face did brighten in realization.
For Kia knew,
that hot June day,
that only she could save me."

112 Most destructive chewing occurs just before the owner returns home. The dog is anxiously anticipating the owner's return and this energy is released by chewing. You can prevent your dog from indiscriminately chewing whatever is handy and instead chew her own toys. Whenever you return home, insist that your dog greet you with a toy in her mouth. At first you will have to help her by telling her to "find" her toy. Do not give your usual home coming greeting until she has a toy firmly in her mouth. Within a few days, your dog will realize that you never say hello unless she has a toy in her mouth. Now when your dog starts anticipating your return, she will automatically begin looking for a toy with which to gain your greeting and approval when you do return. If a toy is already in her mouth, she will be likely to chew on it, rather than on the furniture, to release tension. ~~ Gwen Bohnenkamp, "Manners for the Modern Dog"
