Dogs Have Faith, Hope and Trust

There is no doubt in Wrigley's mind, that at some point each evening, I will manage to drop a piece of meat or some rice that will fall to the floor.  He waits, a bit impatiently, resting his head on the rungs of my kitchen table. He has faith in me.  I have faith in him, too, as I know whatever does fall will promptly be picked up by my drooling dog.  You could say our family has strong faith.

While he waits, he is hoping.....hoping that I have filled my plate too full; hoping that I will have one more glass of wine, and get a little sloppy and drop a nice juicy piece of steak.  Our family has strong hope, too.

Trust: I believe Wrigley trusts me, too.  For he knows that if I do not spill a single morsel of delicious people food at the dinner hour, that I always save him a couple of bites to be placed in his bowl when we are clearing our plates from the table. We have a trusting relationship.

Life and the relationships we cherish should always be this simple and wonderful, don't you think?,

Considering what our beagle put us through last night, the trust is in question right now, but the love is still neverending. (And yes, I do save her a few bites of whatever Sprite won't eat. Luckily, Sprite doesn't like meat so Blue and Harry usually get SOMETHING out of the deal.) :-)
