as some of you know, i have had the pleasure of being the human to several dogs: a beagle (parker), a cairn terrier (comet) and currently a lab (annabel lee).
this past week or so i've been the lucky guardian of an additional lab, savannah.
now look, i'm not exactly the dog whisperer.
not by a long shot.
in fact, i'm more the dog wimperer because they usually have their way with me.
but i have observed enough to know that dogs are not political, religious or frivolous.
they are one thing.
and i have to say, that's more than enough for me.
(i've had cats too, and one could extrapolate this simple truth, except by and large cats don't care)
