He is just a dog

By Bill Sherry

In his column “Homespun,” Jim Langham wrote last week, “It has been 12 years since our home experienced the loss of our last dog. Our Benji, which really did look like a Benji, had gone to his reward, the end of a lifetime chain of ‘departing dog broken hearts.’” What a statement – is that all there is for our dog friends, who are always willing to wag their tails in happiness to see us come through the door, bring their favorite toy and drop it at our feet because they want to play, or do all those doggie tricks for a small treat and a pat on the head? I am afraid so; our dog friends go through life trying to please us and taking our rejection and sometimes neglect with their tails wagging in hope to hear us say “Good Doggie.”
