Why Margaret Writes

Dogs don’t write much. We enjoy life and learn all we need by living. Humans don’t get everything they need from living, so they look in writing for what’s missing. They don’t find it because there are not enough books written by dogs. We dogs love humans and want them to be happy. We are happy when humans are happy, and we are happy when humans are not happy, but we’re very happy when humans are happy. I write about the mind of a dog, so the writing follows no particular order. My hope is humans can be trained to think like dogs, which is the right way to think, and if they obey, humans will be as content as dogs. We dogs will be happier, too.

A Halloween from long ago, and the only time I ever allowed myself to be put in a costume.
