The Ten Best Things About Owning A Dog

The way he will come over to see me,
 for no reason, just to let me know I’m
 important to him
The way he is always ready to lick the
 jelly off my nose.
The way he will run all over the yard,
 fetch a soggy tennis ball and bring it back
 to me as if to say – it’s all have,
 but it’s yours.
The way he wakes me up in the morning by pushing 
his cold wet nose in my ear and snuffing loudly.
The way he shreds toilet paper all over the house,
 because it’s fun – even though he knows he shouldn’t
The way he wedges himself near me when I am sad and 
push all others away, to console me with his love.
The way he doesn’t care about bad hair days or
 overdue bills.
The way he loves me, even when I’m impatient 
with him and have no time this morning for a game
 of tug the shirt.
The way his coat feels like liquid silk under
 my fingers.
The way he looks into my eyes and finds
 contentment in just being near me.
