Post #2600 — On Contemplating the Adoption of a Dog

Ah, as with so many,
this stray’s name is unknown —
no name etched on an identifying tag,
silver in the shape of a bone.
We look forward to hearing whatever
history is known
along with behaviors observed
from the Chocolate’s history
and experiences preserved,
both good and bad.
It’s always a grab bag —
not unlike the dog’s fellow humans
a bag containing items
both happy and, ofttimes, profoundly sad.
