A poem by Kate Barnes:

Why do you ask?

I can't make
any story
about my life

tonight. The house
is like an overturned

the radio
is predicting
more rain.

I ask my dog
to tell me
a story, and she

never hesitates.
"Once upon
a time," she says,

"a woman lived
with a simply
wonderful dog..." and

she stops talking.
"Is that all?"
I ask her.

"Yes," she says,
"Why do you ask?
Isn't it enough?"

Its tough getting used to a dog being gone. But they remain with us forever really. Or close enough to forever for practical purposes.

They do not get jealous if you adopt another dog. Lots of dawgs need a home.

I'm sorry for your loss. It's really tough when you realize how much joy dogs bring to a home.

I have several telescopes, but none are semi-APO, APO, or in anyway valuable.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I've always enjoyed your posts about Gabby.

Sweet the coming on
Of grateful evening mild; then silent night
With this her solemn bird and this fair moon,
And these the gems of heaven, her starry train.
--John Milton
