Philosophize is a big word, but sometimes I have to use it as a very good therapy dog for humans. It is almost the time for the heart-shaped day of Valentines, when people say “I love you, Sophie,” a lot more than the usual amount, which is already a lot. That means it is the time of the year when I remember what the love really is.
The love is like a very good ball that has fallen into a very good pool. You can stare at it for hours, but you will never know how it tastes until you jump into the water. Then it tastes like ball.
The love is something so big that you can run and swim in it as long as you like but never reach the other side. Some human-people turn back because they get scared, but when you keep swimming in the love, you have a very good time. And get treats.
The love is the best when it is shared with others that are like I am. Sharing is what grows the love.
The love is also the best when it is shared with others that are not like I am. Sharing with them is very good for growing the love too, as well. If you give them treats, you get extra of the love.
The love is to know when to pick somebody up because they are tired of running by themselves. This is what being a very good therapy dog for humans is all about.
The love is also to know when to lie down next to somebody because they are tired and you are tired and you just want to lie next to them and smell their breath because it is pleasant to smell. This is also what being a very good therapy dog for humans is all about.
There is a lot of the love in my life from all around, but there is one thing that makes me think about the love more than any other thing in the whole world…
The love happens when the FedEx guy pulls up and I hear his brakes and he waves at me and I run out and he makes me wait but then he gives me treats. That is when I know what the love is and that I have a very good lot of it for me.
