His hair, his size, his mouth, his lugs,
Shew’d  he was nane o’Scotland’s dogs;
But whalpit some place for abroad,
Whare sailors gang to fish for cod.

His locked, letter’d, braw brass collar
Shew’d him the gentleman an’ scholar;
But though he was o’ high degree,
The fient a pride, nae pride had he;
But wad hae spent an hour caressin,
Ev’n wi’ al tinker-gipsy’s mesin:
At kirk or market, mill or smiddie,
Nae tawted tyke, tho’ e’er sae duddie,
But he wad stan’t, as glad to see him,
An’ stroan’t on stanes an’ hillocks wi’ him.

The tithe was a ploughman’s collie –
A rhyming, ranting, raving billie,
Wha for his friend an’ comrade had him,
And in freak had Luath ca’d him,
After some dog in Highland Sang,
Was made lang syne, – Lord knows how lang.

-Robert Burns, From ‘The Twa Dogs’-


Why We Love Dogs…..

Can we imagine a world where there were no dogs? It is impossible to figure what that would be like…

      ” If I waWhy-We-Love-Dogss sad, then he had grief, as well-
         Seeking my hands with soft insistent paw,
        Searching my face with anxious eyes that saw
        More than my halting, human speech could tell;
       Eyes wide with wisdom, fine, compassionate-
       Dear, loyal one, that knew not wrong nor hate.
       If I made merry – then how he would strive
       To show his joy ; ‘Good master, let’s to play,
       The world is ours, ‘that gladsome bark would say;
       ‘Just yours and mine -’tis fun to be alive!’
       Our world… four walls above the city’ din,
        My crutch the bar that ever held us in.”
