Dogs are too Good for Us

Dogs are too good for us. They love us unconditionally, a sign of undying love in their licks and tail wags, whether we leave for a day or five minutes (and then come back). In heaven, it should be filled with tennis balls, treats to eat, and fluffy clouds to sleep on.

Dogs are too good for us. We don’t deserve their sweet, soft hazel-chocolate gazes. They love exercise; walks are the best thing ever. I love her soft little ears, her button black nose. I love how Charlie curls up on her soft bed, how she woofs softly in her dreams.

Dogs are too good for us. We don’t deserve their friendship; they are our hiking buddies, our companions as we eat, sleep, and wash dishes. Dogs are our comforters when cry and when we cheer.

Dogs are just too good for us.

By Meghan B.

Hello there! I'm Meghan. Thanks for checking out my blog!

Although I'm almost 30, I haven't lost my sense of child-like wonder for the world around me. I've been making up stories my whole life: My imaginative play with toys as a child has grown up with me, maturing into my imaginative wordplay with fantasy and sci-fi novels, as well as free-verse poetry. I thrive on creating something with my hands and with my mind, using my pen or my keyboard.

When I'm not working, I'm reading, writing, or knitting, I'm sleeping. I also enjoy watching Netflix, occasionally playing open-world video games, or hanging out with my family, my two golden girl retrievers Bentley and Charlie, my friends, or my boyfriend Rory.

Happy blogging!
