A Dog’s Life

“When I look into the eyes

of an animal I do not see an animal.

I see a living being.

I see a friend. I feel a soul.”

—A.D. Williams

“When we adopt a dog or any pet, we know it is going to end with us having to say goodbye, but we still do it. And we do it for a very good reason: They bring so much joy and optimism and happiness. They attack every moment of every day with that attitude.” — W. Bruce Cameron

Zoe, whose name means “life” in Greek, enjoyed life to the fullest with her family, Joe, Lori, Alex and Andrew. Whether fetching a ball, enjoying a top-down ride in the family Cadillac, or just plain lying companionably at one’s feet, Zoe exuded love, loyalty and happiness. — Watercolor painting of Zoe by Mary O’Connor.
