I have always had rescue dogs.
I have to say that my relationship with them has always been the most fulfilling in my life.
It is worth the hankering for. And having been without Rusty for four years now I do often ache for a dog.
I have to recognize that I am quite a tart for their touch. I go down to the beach every day when I know that a number of dogs will be playing there.
My spirit cannot resist but to be entwined in their joy.
