This is what pure joy looks like.

Today’s topic is about love. Not such a macho thing for most guys but I guess I’m not like most men. I took a silly test a while back that said that this is my first life as a human. In my previous lives I was always an animal.

The more I’ve thought about this the more it makes some kind of sense. I’ve never been good at being social. I have a lot of problems dealing with a room full of strangers. I’ve always wanted to live up on a mountain far from the maddening crowd.

I have feelings like everyone else…I just keep them to myself for the most part. I don’t want to be alone, but then again, I can live without people if I have my dogs. I guess I’m complicated in many ways and maybe that’s okay.

I’ve never found an animal companion that means so much to me as my Huskies. I’ve had German Shepheard’s, Labs, Pits, etc. But none of these dogs has changed my thinking like my Huskies. When I look at them all I feel is this incredible bond that can bring tears to my eyes

Nikki is a little over 2 years old now. That is 21 years in human time and it seems so unfair to me.

These dogs live in the moment. Life is too short for them to waste time. They rejoice in each and every day they are here. And that should be a lesson to us all. There is no time to waste on hate. They need very little to be happy, and we’ve lost that along our way to succeed and be better than the next person.

My huskies expect me to keep them safe. They need some shelter, love, and food. They look at me like I’m their dad, and I will do my best to make them happy during their short life with me. In return they bring  joy to my days. They teach me about love of life and how to live in the moment.

Dogs are the true spirits of all that is good. They love everyone, unless you’ve taught them to hate. If you have then you are worthless as a human being. We as a race that rule this planet, have lost that. We should learn from the animals we subjugate. They are pure and we are not. Many of us have lost that concept, we hate first, and love when there is something in it for us.

There are so many lost souls in the world. Full of pain and full of hate. They only want to kill people, animals, pretty much kill everything including themselves.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Maybe some time spent with some of these pure souls would bring some joy into their lives. Or maybe they are too far gone to see what is right there in front of them.

Not everyone can recognize a good thing when they see it. Many are too caught up in themselves to care about anyone or anything else. These dogs show us the way, if only our race would open their eyes and look.

Its not too late, but our time is running out.

  1. “Dogs are the true spirit of all that is good.” THAT encompasses ALL that I have been trying to find in my life. Thank you, TJ, for naming that intangible that means so much to me. This gives me so much peace now. Again, thank you.


  2. As a person of deep faith, I fully understand the love. Many times I pray for wisdom and understanding and good health for my huskies. The wisdom that was shared with me made me want to act more like my huskies. If you want to understand Gods love, watch your huskies love for you and that’s how we should do the same. TJ, you and I share the same view of people and all social aspects. Thank you for your writings.
