Though it shows the dog's devotion saying the dog will never look away sounds a little presumptous. Perhaps better would be "You never look away".

"You will never look away." is a comment and feeling referring to the dog's steadfastness and faithfullness.

the dog must look away eventually. Can't spend it's entire life gawking at its owner. Needs time for sleep.

I see what you mean, I think. Are you taking this sentence literally. I meant it to be a metaphor for "You will always be faithful." or, "You will never turn your back on me." Does that make sense?

I like "you will never turn your back on me"

"Oh, that your devotion SHOULD be mine" may confirm that the dog is already your best friend. :)

soul mates

Love is found when and where you least expect it.


Eyes focused on each other, we plumb the depths
of our unrelated souls.


You tilt your head to the side.
In rapt attention you search ever deeper into me,
and I into you, my Perfect One.


Without even touching, the bond is growing between us.


Love comes.
Without even touching we confirm our oneness.
You will never look away.
You do not have to understand me to love me.
Oh, that your devotion could be mine! 7 comments


In a moment, I am able to love, a little bit.
Reaching out a hand, I stroke your hair joyfully and without shame.
You wriggle in quiet ecstasy.


“How ‘bout a treat?” I say, as you bark your approval,“Good dog!”
