My Four-Legged Guru: An Aging Dog’s Tail
My little dog Lucky has always been my best friend. Lucky is an 8-pound Morky: half Yorkie/half Maltese. She’s had her share of up’s and down’s over the course of her seven years with us, hard-won whisps of grey mixed in with her salt and paper beard.
But as she transits beyond puppyhood and well into midlife, she has grown into something much more. She is now not only my best friend, but my four-legged guru. Here are seven spiritual lessons I’ve learned from the master in my lap.
