I love dogs
I love dogs as you can see dogs bring out the best in humanity. I wrote this book because I want to share how much we need dogs, and how much they need our loving care. As you look at each painting and read each poem I hope you smile and take dogs into your home.
the world is beautiful The world can be as beautiful as you make it. Life is a gift in gratitude Take It. 4 .
there is bliss There is bliss in the presence of love profound. 5 . It is in the trees as the wind rushes by. within that breeze in each little sigh. it is all around. If your heart is open.
make the world Make the world a pretty place a haven of comfort a loving space to paint away any ugliness so we can forget the nastiness. A home for me so safe and sound where the humans want me around. 6 .
i feel so safe I feel so safe and cozy here. nestled beneath my best friend's ear. 7 .
The moonlight beckons the stars into view each precious second so wonderful and new. 8 . I go to sleep on my best friend’s head. The little creatures close their eyes in gentle silence the clouds pass by.time for bed And when my humans say it is time for bed.
looking in I am looking in you are looking out. Can we be friends and romp about? 9 .
We are as different as can be.we are different Four fur friends forever. but we love each others’ company. 10 .
11 . In our hearts it is spoken in our hearts it is heard.trust I trust you without ever saying a word.
true friendship A true friendship cannot be defined It has no boundaries, draws no lines. It stands where others may never go It is a thing of silent beauty most will never know.
no need to be earned. Our love is true. analyzed or qualified. 13 .our love is true Our love is not something to be quantified. We give more than can be returned. a switching tail. a hearty bark. It comes with trust that cannot be assailed.
one cute doggie I am one cute doggie and I know it. When I want my person to do something I love to show it. I work the ears, the eyes the tail, the paws and she just stares and adores.
In the end it is all we have to show. 15 .embrace goodness Embrace goodness never let it go.
16 .hour whirled Time passes quickly as it must no time to settle no time to rust. Given moments with which we flow what happens next we never know.
17 .petunia My name is Petunia and a bulldog I be You think that is a funny name Dare you to say that to me I might have to kiss your face all over the place.
I am big and strong. 18 . tell me what did I do wrong? I will follow you. please give me a try. have fun? You spit at me.i am a pit bull I am a pit bull. set me on fire why do these terrible things transpire? There is no more loyal. kick me. do whatever you ask there is for me no impossible task. loving friend than I just think about it. Yet some of you see me and you run don’t you know I want to play.
Would you make us your very own? 19 .we need a home We do not have a home.
20 ..i am a shelter dog We want the chance to live in a world well lit with human voices that around us flit. I am a shelter dog who needs a place to call my own.. A soft bed. Open your door and I will give you more. a loving space. enough food so hunger is not what we feel we know in our hearts that this can be real.
i am a greyhound I am a greyhound I am built for speed. But now I run from man and his misdeeds. 21 .
puppies milled We live here in a puppy mill It is winter now and we are chilled. When summer comes with heat too strong our fur gets matted, it gets too long. We cannot breathe, we cannot see we can only feel our misery. We are not human We cannot shout Please rescue us Please get us out. 22

I have eyes but I cannot see yet I know there is a world.my guide dog my heart I sit in this chair I cannot move my legs nor arms but with you by my side there will be no harm. You are my soul. 25 . it is all around me. our trust is forever that bond shall never end.
K9/11 hearts They stand by their person tall and proud waiting for each command by hand signal or aloud. will someone be saved today? Eyes tearing from smoke. 26 . doing their best at the end of a long day head on their person’s chest they know that tomorrow will bring more of this sorrow. they plow straight ahead as they cough and they choke perhaps wishing for bed. Into the rubble into the fray not fearing trouble. Tirelessly devoted. Their paws are so tired they are cut until raw but they keep on going keep looking for more.
the howl There was a time the world was ours, no big tall buildings, no noisy cars, no people with guns shooting at everything they see, when we could howl as a family, when we could roam our world at will no worry about if we would be killed. The moon our beacon the sun our friend, we did not think this would ever end.
but no guesses who is the alpha here. You are humans that is very clear. wood does good fiber make. that dining room set.

If the door is open. That watch you got when you graduated from school? I stopped time with my puppy teeth a-roooo. a great teething break. ain't that cool !!! And furniture . Yes I am part wolf and like to howl but take away my food – I may start to growl.
i love my person I love my person I love my cat I am a pitbull What do you think of that? 29 .
As he revels in sights and sounds filled with love and compassion for all that surrounds. 30 .the little black puppy The little puppy in his secret land just relaxing. nothing planned.
