Daisy turns eight today. That feisty, thick-headed, stubborn puppy has turned into the best dog anyone could ask for. She’s a gentle friend to all she meets.
From Mary Oliver’s “The Sweetness of Dogs” (Dog Songs):
For Daisy and Frank who share a special bond:
. . . how grateful I am for the moon’s
perfect beauty and also, oh! how rich
it is to love the world. Percy, meanwhile,
leans against me and gazes up into
my face. As though I were just as wonderful
as the perfect moon.
