A Dog


Well, I don’t mean just any dog.

I had Peter, Jingles and Rex, then during my first marriage

An Alaskan Malamute, a Siberian Husky and a Samoyed.

My Venezuelan husband preferred anything from the north,

Including me, but maybe I wasn’t from far enough up north.

He didn’t bring those dogs indoors and I don’t think real affection passed between them.


Brutus and Jasper lived with me during my second

Marriage. That husband didn’t bond with dogs either.

These days memories of my dogs are held dear,

Adding  animal dimensions of devotion, patience and humility

To my peopleness.

We people are good much of the time, but my dogs were great always.
