Canine Lesson in Love – Nonet

by journeyintopoetry

They give us unconditional love

and ask for nothing in return;

there is a lesson in here

for all of us to learn.

Radiate kindness

cease aggression

turn it round

  1. Nice post.
    Friendship is the purest love and it is the highest form of love where nothing is asked for, no condition; where one simply enjoys giving.

  2. There is an amazing energy of unconditional love in our pets, Christine. And you are so right, as a race we could learn so much from them. x

    • Thank you very much Angela,

      I have just acquired a mobility scooter and I practiced for the second time today (someone accompanied me), taking my dog with me. We hooked his lead over it and he walked so beautifully I could have cried. It was as if he knew he needed to be careful. He simply does what I ask of him so willingly and asks for nothing. What he receives of course is my never ending love and appreciation of his wonderful nature. He may get the odd treat or two as well! πŸ™‚ xxx

    • Aww Angela, now Ive got tears again! Good ones though πŸ™‚ xxx

  3. We can always learn from cats and dogs.

  4. pets make great companions because of their innocents

  5. Awesome beauty in your truth like light! xo

  6. A mobility scooter, i must warn the people of Leeds in my other blog πŸ™‚

  7. Beautiful Christine. Moving, and so true. Hope you’re enjoying your new found freedom…bless that scooter, and your canine companion for accompanying you. Love and blessings, Harula xxx

    • Thanks so much Harula for your lovely comment.

      Jack(my dog) is such a gentle soul. If I have a weepy day, he starts by looking a little puzzled then takes it upon himself to be pro active, and “sorts me out” with licks and snuggles; he is a true friend.

      Much love and blessings

      Christine xx

  8. Christine, this is a lovely and true tribute to pets.

    Blessings ~ Wendy
