I promise….

To bark until I make you crazy

To chew up your favourite shoes

To dig holes in every garden you build

To shed in places you didn’t know possible

To drool on every window of your home

To introduce you to new people who will expand your life

To life your burdens when they feel heavy

To teach and share with you the meaning of unconditional love

To make you laugh

To teach you to believe in things unseen

To expand your heart like never before

… that is my promise
