Love the Dog

“You become what you give your attention to.” – Epictetus

Amid life's challenges, the simple joys of arriving home, walking in the park, and nurturing unconditional love bind us to our faithful companions.


Leave the cage with all the other wounded birds.
See his smile when you arrive home.
At the front door.
Take him for a walk.
To the park.
Play with the other dogs.

Feed the dog.
Love the dog.
