'Because of the dog’s joyfulness,   
our own is increased.   

It is no small gift.   

It is not the least reason why   
we should honor as well as love   
the dog of our own life,   
and the dog down the street,   
and all the dogs not yet born.   

What would the world be like   
without music or rivers or   
the green and tender grass?   

What would this world be like without dogs?'
