There was something about the stare that pierced my soul. It wasn’t just a look from one species to another but between two souls with one sensing the different being within. They say dogs aren’t brilliant but this one knew how I felt in a way that others couldn’t perceive. The dog knew that although I didn’t have a tail there was a deeper happiness hidden beneath my walls. This was a child like simple happiness that was deeply hidden until the stare from my four legged friend.
