Best Friends Animals or HUMAN

I just struggled to go on a walk
doc says before you die
gain your stamina

I passed by an extremely fair skinned couple
they looked away to the other side
even though I'm not black.

I was struggling
pulling/dragging my legs slowly

The three dogs left them and came to me
and licked my feet

They sighed couldn't speak
I smiled and patted them
they licked my palms

The couple was amazed
but felt no shame
as their dogs had replaced them

Who is more human
can you spell it out to me

...I sometimes wish people were more like dogs. The world might be a better place.
.hm..on second thought, are you sure they weren't just tasting you to see if you'd make a good meal?


. like my lost dreams...the flood

I like humour

that was it, they were taking a lesson from watching Shark Week, using their mouth to taste you to see if you were edible!
Is he sweet enough? ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

taste me if you can

Humans are too quick to judge, they cannot feel a stranger's heart; dogs can.


The most powerful reaction
of mind on mind
is transference of sight

Dogs are on a completely different level when it comes to sensitivity. They can be Wonderful creatures.


. like my lost dreams...the flood

some times I feel I'd have been a better puppy
