My Friends who don't have Dogs
by Anna Levin
In a pet dog you have your own personal trainer, your most loyal companion, your friendliest welcome, your uncritical friend.
Yes, there are the muddy paws, the walks in the rain, the wet fur and the chewed footwear ... but let's look at the big picture!
In a tribute to Man's Best Friend, Anna Levin's delightful short poem is a homage to our pet dogs, each line illustrated with a moving photograph of someone's mutt: funny, heart-wrenching, loving, exasperating and paying back their owners a hundred times over.
