But the striking similarities don’t just end there. We are both gay and we make no bone about it. There I said it!
In doggie world, life is really not that complicated at all. You eat, sleep, play and love unconditionally, which is our doggie way of helping to make a meaningful difference. We also live by the motto: live and let live and love the one you’re with. This is why I’m eager to bring joy to anyone I meet regardless of gender and help end the horrors of abuse, exploitation and homelessness faced daily by millions of dogs through the wonderful ‘Fur-ever Friends: until no dog is left behind’ campaign organized by One Spirit, One World (www.onespiritoneworld.org).
Seriously, I have a novel doggie idea. In the spirit of focusing on what really matters – Ellen’s generosity of spirit - let’s not call one of my favorite dog heroes, Ellen De Generes. Let’s do her justice by simply calling her Ellen The Generous.
From a humble doggie perspective, if somebody throws you a lifeline, why should you care about the person’s skin color, race or gender, right? Likewise, shouldn’t you apply the same logic to love too? And if love is color blind, shouldn’t it also be gender blind?
Until our paths cross again my pawmazing friends! Woof woof!
