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.
