HOW COULD YOU?

By Jim Willis 2001

When I was a puppy, I entertained you with my antics
and made you laugh. You called me your child, and despite
a number of chewed shoes and a couple of murdered throw
pillows, I became your best friend. Whenever I was "bad,"
you'd shake your finger at me and ask "How could you?" --
but then you'd relent, and roll me over for a bellyrub.

My housebreaking took a little longer than expected, because
you were terribly busy, but we worked on that together.
I remember those nights of nuzzling you in bed and listening
to your confidences and secret dreams, and I believed that
life could not be any more perfect. We went for long walks
and runs in the park, car rides, stops for ice cream (I only
got the cone because "ice cream is bad for dogs," you said),
and I took long naps in the sun waiting for you to come home
at the end of the day.

Gradually, you began spending more time at work and on
your career, and more time searching for a human mate.
I waited for you patiently, .... read more here [link]

Reminds me of MY pooch,. had to be put down in Oct' of 2003 due to old age and rear legs that were failing on her. She was over 17,. (yes,. 17 years old,, 119 in doggy years),.. I miss her SOOOO much,.. and this picture reminds me heavily of her eyes when she was a pup. :aww:
I sorely miss her, thanks so much for this image; it's beautiful. :)

The picture is positively wonderful but the story is so horribly sad! My cat is 21 and I wouldn't give her up for anything in the world including my boyfriend who isn't a "cat person" and is incredibly allergic to her. I just make him deal!

But I do love the picture.

Oh, this is ADORABLE!!! Beagles have such big, sweet eyes. That story's sad, though--and, even more sadly, often true. B/W was a good choice.

Look at those trusting eyes. Melts you right to the core. Beautiful shot and I loved how you connnected it with what was written. Big lump in my throat and I feel the need to go pick up each of my cats and tell them how much I love them. Kids, too, I suppose. :D
