-Dogs Continue To Teach Me How To Live-


“There is a destiny that makes us brothers,

No one should go his way all alone;

All that we give to the lives of others,

Comes back eventually, into our own.”


Edwin Markham



Music: He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother




They are two devoted canine brothers

Who are lost in the deep forest, together

Joined to each other, by leash, and by heart

For two weeks, in autumn’s inclement weather


Their human caretaker is now sad and distraught

Believing that she’ll never see these two dogs again

Many people join in the search for these two brothers

Whose tangled leash, keeps them trapped, without end


Finally, one of these canine brothers, breaks loose

And he sets off, searching for assistance, for the other

He is found by a compassionate person, and taken home

But he won’t be content until he is reunited with his brother


So he now diligently leads his owner back into the deep forest

Straight to the bushes, which are still holding his brother captive

Each brother, now overjoyed, that they are both, safe and sound

A tale of brotherly love, and a lesson to all, on how we should live



©October 2012, Mr. Ed

So lovely of how unconditional ties of love
without judgement of who you are... may all
learn from these two friends, acceptance is

Beautiful Mr. Ed

Brotherly love is unconditional but some human beings do not know it. I think they should learn from the dongs as we usually do.

Yer Dear Ole Ma ED's version of this here Brotherly Luv Story was a tad different.
As 0I recollect it wuz Edvard The Elder n' Peewee Ed The Instigator, what took poor Lil Jersey Devil Ed, The Bed-Wetter, out into the hills of Appalachia n' Leashed him onto a tree in the middle of a Briar Patch... hopin nobody wood ever miss the poor lil misguided Wretched Whippersnapper.

Howsomeever, sum heathen Bowsman, name of Burt Reynolds, frum Deliverance, found the poor "Baby Huey" type Dum-Dum, who had lost near onto 100 pounds, after bein stuck thar fer about two weeks.

Seems the poor Waif never got over tha trauma, n' to this day has to depend on DEPENDS !!!

As related to Cuz Sir Cur by Dear Ole Ma ED, sum 35 years or so ago...
