Humane Association

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” Roger Caras

Oddly enough, to feel more human, I interact with non-humans. We have a Bichon puppy named Scampi. He entertains me and makes me laugh. His interest in life and his playful curiosity remind me of natural pleasures. He reminds me to see the fun.

Fun is around us. Fun is within us. My friends used to tell me that ‘fun’ was my middle name. Maybe it was because I am Irish. Irish people know how to have fun. The day to day responsibilities attempt to¬†rob me of fun. They can make me forget to look for the fun. Scampi pulls me from my responsible, busy world. His antics entice me to laugh. Laughter lightens my soul and I can see the fun again.

  1. One of the first things I do when I get home from work is grab my cats, hold them, and close my eyes for a moment. This is after I greet my wife, of course. There’s nothing like a loving pet. I miss my great dane so much! He was the greatest. Thanks for the pleasant imagery and memories you’ve elicited.
