A Message from Max

My name is Max and I have a little something I'd like to whisper in your ear.
I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have
children to raise.
It always seems like you are running here and there, often much to fast,
often never noticing the truly grand things in life.
Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my
dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now, that comes with
age. The grey hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle. You smile at me;
I see love in your eyes. What do you see in mine?
Do you see a spirit, a soul inside who loves you as no other could in the
world? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrong doing for
just a simple moment of your time?

That is all I ask. To slow down if even for a few minutes to be with me.
So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that screen,
of others of my kind passing. Sometimes we die young and oh so quickly,
sometimes so suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes
we age so slowly before your eyes that you do not even seem to know, until
they very end, when we look at you with grizzled muzzles and cataract
clouded eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we take that long
sleep, to run free in distant lands.

I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will
shed the waters from your eyes, that humans' have when deep grief fills
their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just
"One more day" with me.

Because I love you so, your sorrow touches my spirit and grieves me. We
have Now, together. So come, sit down here next to me on the floor. And look
deep into my eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will
talk you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as "alpha" or as a "trainer"
or even a "Mom or Dad", come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and
let us look deep into one another's eyes, and talk. I may tell you something
about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, the scent of a cool spring breeze or
I may tell you something profound about myself, or even life in general. You
decided to have me in your life (I hope) because you wanted a soul to share
just such things with. Someone very different from you but yet a kindred
non-judgmental soul, and here I am. I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel
emotion, I feel physical senses, and I can revel in the differences of our
spirits and souls. I do not think of you as a "Dog on two feet" I know what
you are. You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still.
Now, come sit with me, on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow down
if even for only 15 minutes. Look deep in my eyes, and whisper to my ears.
Speak with your heart, with your joy and I will know your true self and you
will know mine. We may not have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short.

Love,

Max, (on behalf of all canines everywhere)
