Lovely run today with my collie Jake bounding beside me, his tail wagging with joy.
We have much to learn from dogs: joy, love, forgiveness, living in the present, revelling in movement.
I love seeing dogs leap & fly over the fields near our house, just delighted to be alive.
C.S. Lewis amusingly declared that while we may not have dogs in heaven (but we will!, we must!) we will at least have “the essence of dogness.”
I was amused to see statues to Collies in the hill country of New Zealand. Apparently, that part of the country would not have been settled without collie dogs.
