As I was looking through my computer at some old (and new) pictures of Sage, my eyes were instantly drawn the ones with the brightest colors. Since Sage is so dark in color, everything else around her seems to brighten in her presence. It seems she has this effect on people too, not just color.
She has an extraordinary ability to put a smile on anyone's face, especially mine. I know that when I'm having a terrible day, all I need in order to cheer up is spend a few minutes hangin' with Sagey. Whether it's a big sloppy kiss on the cheek or a 65 lb "lap dog" sitting on your face, a smile is inevitable when Sage is around.
It's not just me that she has this effect on either, it's anyone she meets. A brief encounter with someone at the park leaves the passerby with a grin spreading across their face.
Aren't all dogs like this too? They aren't prejudice or selective; they don't care about appearance or intelligence; they love with everything they have, it's all they know how to do.
So I'm going to take a lesson from my four-legged friend on how to love with my whole heart, not just part of it.
