Dogs fulfill us in so many ways. They fill in for human companions when we’re lonely. They keep us company on our morning walks. They give us something living, soft, and warm to cuddle with. They serve as alarm clocks, burglar alarms, and sentries… We don’t ask them to do these things, but they do. They can’t speak and ask us for what they need. So giving them simple things like exercise, discipline, and affection, in that order — will go a long way toward thanking our dogs for everything they bring to our lives.

"When I sit before you, stranger,
I know how much time you'll need
to bury the distance between us.
You are at the peak of your intelligence
and I am at the peak of my banquet.
...You are deliberating how to begin flirting with me,
and I, under the curtain of my seriousness,
am already done devouring you."
