Bau: My Volunteer Friends

With students back in class (hopefully) I’ll be going back to my volunteer work at the

Student Wellness Hub Animal Therapy (SWHAT)

The Student Wellness Hub Animal Therapy, (SWHAT) initiative seeks to bring stress relief, joy, and companionship with furry friends.

I can hardly wait to go back to volunteering as I’m getting pretty bored hanging out inside (it’s freezing out) and mostly sleeping all day. Here are my friends at the Hub. Don’t you think we make a great diverse team?

    JUST MY DOG
    He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds;
    My other ears that hear above the winds.
    He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea.

    He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being:
    By the way he rests against my leg
    By the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile
    By the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him.
    (I think it makes him sick with worry when he
    is not along to care for me.)

    When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive.
    When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.
    When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.
    When I am a fool, he ignores it.
    When I succeed, he brags.
    Without him, I am only another person. ,With him, I am all-powerful.
    He is loyalty itself., He has taught me the meaning of devotion.
    With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace.

    He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.
    His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.
    His presence by my side is protection against, my fears of dark and unknown things.
    He has promised to wait for me…, whenever…wherever–in case I need him.
    And I expect I will–as I always have.
    He is just my dog.
    (Author Gene Hill…)

    Until we meet again..
    May the dreams you hold dearest
    Be those which come true
    May the kindness you spread
    Keep returning to you
    (Irish Saying)
