You Opened the Door
The Rejection Letter is My Shepherd

Read about my little bitch here...
My bitch awakens me each morning with kisses, Sometimes on my face and neck,
And others on my feet.
We both love it,
Even though her breath reeks.
My bitch is long and lean,
With short black hair that is sleek to the stroke,
Tanned legs and face,
And big, beautiful brown eyes
That shine with both youth and intelligence.
My bitch follows me wherever I go.
She never gabs my ear off with inane chatter,
But whenever I speak,
She tilts her head and listens intently.
If she doesn’t understand all that I say, she sure has me fooled.
Whenever I come home,
My bitch greets me at the door with kisses,
Happy to see me, no matter what:
Even if I’m in a bad mood,
Or have lost money,
Or my job.
When I’m sad, my bitch is there,
And always cares,
And always knows what to do to comfort me.
She stands or sits by my side,
Showering me with affection until I feel better...
At least a little...
My bitch will never spread lies about me,
Steal from me,
Or betray me in any other way.
As long as she’s alive, she’ll be with me, and be mine.
My bitch is the best friend you could ever have.
Yet some people,
Given the chance,
Would sell her, neglect her, torture her, or kill her,
Because she is, after all, “just an animal...”
Or is she?
Or is it those of us who are too ignorant
To realize the beauty of the bitch
Who are the real animals?
My bitch deserves a better title than “bitch.”
Even the words “dog” or “canine” do not do justice
To a creature who will always be
Kinder and more faithful to me than most humans I’ll meet,
If I ever meet any, that is.
They are more human than humans, these bitches.
“Bitches,” my ass...
They should be called “angels.”

|I agree with MR. Pee Wee Ed, and I fully appreciate what you are saying in such a wonderful way, I would trust any dog, before I would one of our kind, thei're loyal to the outmost, I would give any dog a medal of bravery that I have known, and if I had to give love or receive it I would go to the dogs, and by the way the priest was right, why can't we be more like them, maybe in a million years we can learn! give her the biggest hug from me, and one for you too!

|Can one love a dog more than one can a human being? Yes, for I have loved my "Sandy" more than any human. It was a one time feeling, but it was there.|

|So many thruths to view and the strike in words, like this drag of line, a clever format, a hard noise in voice to present, proof in reflection, lead in to end, a harsh for the final conclution, angels, I think not, more a friend.. Great write.. Walt|

|a striking use of the term in its real context, you certainly made a strong case for a change in designation.|

|I do so agree that they should be called Angels, Macey. This is such a wonderful tribute to a friend who will give her life to save yours if she can. I have three such Angels, Macey. Rowdy (male), age 8 Shadow (spayed female), age 9, and Princess (spayed female) age 13. Even when we are there, and they senses we are sad for some reason, they are all there, by our side. Another thing I disagree with is, calling us their "owners". They are our friends, our confidants, our joy in times of stress, or sadness. I do not "own my Angels, they are just family members with four legs. And because I sleep downstairs, they sense I am not right health wise, and on of them, or all three will sleep by my bed. It is such a comfort, to see them return love and affection, and you can believe that Rowdy does live up to his name (giggles). Thnx for sharing this wonderful tribute Macey. May the Lord Jesus bless you and yours, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little den sister, Barbie
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY Macey

|Nice poem. Really enjoyed it. I can take issue saying:
My bitch is bigger than yours.
My bitch yells, fights and bites.
Please enjoy yourself.

|Awww, the pooch is cute. Nice poem which goes with the photo. I have a black lab but never thought of writing a dog into my work. Especially into a shark story.|

|My old priest..RIP..used to say if only humans would be more like dogs.
They do have unconditional love...
|Reviewed by Janet Caldwell
Your last line is so true, I actually have a cat now and I love him fiercely but a dog is probably the more 'faithful' of the species. Your devotion to your sweetie is priceless.
I will have to check out your House of Horror too, I love horror films and writers, I am not very good at it but love to read it. I hope that you have much success in your literary journey.
Wishing you all the best, JC xoxoxo

|They are more human than humans, these bitches.
I truly believe that in many cases, they truly are. Hope yours watches over you for a very long time. I had one that literally saved my life; Some of these 'bitches' are 'angels' indeed.
