A Dog’s Love

girl-and-dog-962191_960_720If you are considering getting a dog for the first time or perhaps adding another one to your fold, consider this quote from Suzzanne Clothier from her book, “Bones Would Rain from the Sky: Deepening Our Relationships with Dogs.”  (I have not read her book but I like this quote.)

“There is a cycle of love and death that shapes the lives of those who choose to travel in the company of animals.  It is a cycle unlike any other.  To those who have never lived through its turnings and walked its rocky path, our willingness to give our hearts with full knowledge that they will be broken seems incomprehensible.  Only we know how small a price we pay for what we receive; our grief, no matter how powerful it may be, is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given.”
