Every night I sit here writing and talking to you out there after the dog house shuts down for the night and everyone is in their beds.  Silence, peace as the homestead breathes in sleep, I am up sharing about the furry lights of love that make up our family.  And except for Princess Leia (my little Siamese) squeaking and squawking for her last bit of loving for the night, all is quiet.  And this is where I reflect on my day with the dogs and find those juicy nuggets that filled my heart to share with you.  The same reasons we started this blog still fuels me today almost three years later.  For the love of  a dog.  For the ways they change your life.  The best friend that is just waiting to come out and be there for you.  The lessons, the gifts, so many I'd need an encyclopedia to fill.  And how sometimes words can't describe a thing about a dog, being so definitive and limited that photos only fills in half the gap.  A tender kiss, swallowed whole by their eyes into pools of love and affection, some days I just drowned inside them.  Where their fierce protection embraces me to never let me go.  And I curl up inside them and breathe again.  It is mystical the pull these animals can have on your life.  It never ceases to astound me.  And as we are drawn in with the magnetic force bringing us closer as one we are and are becoming the 24 Paws of Love.

The love between you and your pack speaks powerfully here. I understand the sense of amazement and unworthiness and miracle that rises within you when you think about the incredible thing you are a part of. So well put and so very true. Thanks for sharing your soul.

Well said. They do fill the open spaces in our hearts. We just had a wonderful weekend with family. my son was home with his wife for a visit of only the two days. Today,I came home from work the house quiet, they had left to return to their duty in the coast Guard. The laughter and the chatter that fill our home this weekend was gone. The only thing to welcome me home were my three dogs. They do know how to fill the voids with love.
