The wildlife comes and goes as it pleases, and the dogs stay in the house and yard, and even sleep with me. At 66 I'm young at heart and nobody guesses my age. And I owe it all to the animals I have adopted over the years, something in the thousands by now.
There is no greater privilege than giving an animal a home. Life is all connected.
