The Dog and The Shadow - An Aesop Fable
It happened that a Dog had got a piece of meat and was carrying it home in his mouth to eat it in peace. Now on his way home he had to cross a plank lying across a running brook. As he crossed, he looked down and saw his own shadow reflected in the water beneath. Thinking it was another dog with another piece of meat, he made up his mind to have that also. So he made a snap at the shadow in the water, but as he opened his mouth the piece of meat fell out, dropped into the water and was never seen more. Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.

Dogs, lives are short, too short, but you know that going in.
You know the pain is coming, you’re going to lose a dog,
and there’s going to be great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her,
never fail to share her joy or delight in her innocence,
because you can’t support the illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion.
There’s such beauty in the hard honesty of that,
in accepting and giving love while always aware that it comes with an unbearable price.
Maybe loving dogs is a way we do penance for all the other illusions we allow ourselves
and the mistakes we make because of those illusions. ― Dean Koontz

It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them.
And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart.

and I will become as generous and loving as they are. - Unknown

i made myself a snowball
As perfect as can be.

And let it sleep with me.

And a pillow for it's head.

But first - It wet the bed.
― Shel Silverstein

It's a humbling moment when you realize your dog is smarter than you. ― Barbra Annino
