My favorite poet is Mary Oliver, and she has written a poem about her dog, Percy.  Enjoy — the poem, your dog, your life.

I Ask Percy How I Should Live My Life

Love, love, love, says Percy.

And hurry as fast as you can

along the shining beach, or the rubble, or the dust.

Then, go to sleep.

Give up your body heat, your beating heart.

Then, trust.

~ Mary Oliver ~
