Harper ShadowDogs, it’s natural to only want to be in the light…after all, we never go to the dog park at night. But if you stop chewing your bone to think about it, life includes it all…the interplay of light and shadow, expansion and contraction, day and night, joy and sadness. All of the beauty of life is of a piece. Every morning, as I sit watching the sun cast my little puffy shadow, I am reminded of the beauty of it all, of light, of shadow, of being born a fur person. Namaste, Pooches.
