A few weeks ago I went on a walk and met a man with a beautiful dog named Pumpkin (names have been changed to protect the
innocent canine). We talked for a bit and the man told me how she was a wonderful friend and that he enjoyed and needed her companionship. I sat and petted and played with the dog. I’m no veterinarian, but it became increasingly clear to me that “she” was certainly NOT a “she,” if you get my drift. I considered telling the man, but I didn’t have the heart.
The clash between myth and experience can be disillusioning, frustrating, and embarrassing. No guarantees, but perhaps once we’ve encountered and accepted the let-down and seen the world for how it really is, perhaps there is still life to be lived and love to be had….
