My Dog, Lester, Inspires Me Every Day
I know, I know…what can a dog possibly teach you about life? A lot, actually.
See, my Maltese, Lester, is one of the most special creatures I have ever known. He is a great reminder of what it means to be inherently good.
We adopted Lester fifteen years ago, to keep my three-year-old Shi Tzu, Sammy, company when everyone was at work and school. See, at that point, Sammy was lonely and needed a friend. But Lester quickly became way more than just Sammy’s playmate. He grew into a source of joy and a reminder of the awe that is abundant in this world.
Every dog is different. I have known many dogs, all special in their own ways. One of Lester’s greatest gift is his sweetness. In his fifteen years of life, Lester has never so much as growled at someone. He is excited to meet everyone that he comes into contact with, whether it is a tiny bunny or a grown human. He has no prejudices. He sees each of earth’s creatures the same and invites everyone he meets to play, usually with his prized hamburger squeak toy in his mouth.
Speaking of his hamburger, Lester is extremely loyal. He has gotten dozens of gifts since getting that toy as a puppy, but he always chooses the hamburger. It is his favorite, always has been, always will be. He forms bonds and sticks with them, whether they are with toys, animals, or people.
When I or a member of the family gets sick, he is loyal in the same way. The usually active little fellow will lay with them until they recover. I could bet anything that if he had thumbs, he would be preparing them soup and tea also.
Lester is also a fighter. He is fifteen, but no one who sees him ever believes it with his cheerfulness and energy. Not only is he considered an elderly dog, but just a few months ago, Lester could not even walk. He needed a wheelchair to get around.
But guess what? That little fighter worked with his wheelchair to bring back his strength.
I never thought I’d see him walk again, let alone run. Yet there he is, every day like clockwork, with his hamburger in his mouth begging to play and chasing anyone who will.
If you ever want to know what true inherent goodness looks like, look at Lester. Goodness in its purest form.
This tiny eight pound Maltese is the epitome of a being who sees the world as an amazing place and does his part to make it even better.
*And he remains adorable at all times.

There was just something so magical about coming
home from school with a friend’s mom’s phone number
tucked between my fingers, handing it to my mother, and
asking her to set up a special day for my friend and me.
I would sit there in front of my mom, bored, as I watched
her make small talk with the friend’s mom on the bisque
cordless phone. But then, she would get to the good part:
planning. The day, time, what snacks would be served, who
would drop the friend off…it was all in the details. I just had
to do one thing to make it happen: tidy up my room. I would
grovel the whole time, but it was always worth it.
The play date was an event. My friend would pull up,
our parents would chat while we ran to my room. I would
introduce the friend to each of my eight favorite stuffed
animals: Blue Teddy, Mousy, Tim, Honey, Sammy, Clifford,
Susan, and Franklin. Then, weather permitting, we would
go outside and play on the wooden swing set that my dad
put together. After that, we would reenact scenes from our
favorite shows: All That, The Amanda Show, Kenan and
Kel, and Drake and Josh. Although, I did have some friends
who would write original content with me, normally about
pretty princesses or brilliant spies, two things we strived to
When it was time for the friend to go, we would beg for just
five minutes more. Normally, we would get fifteen more, but
it was never enough. When the friend left, I always wished
they hadn’t. Then, I’d see them in school the next day, and
we’d tell our whole class about all the fun stuff we did and
try to make everyone jealous.
But it doesn’t work like that anymore. Hanging out with a
friend now consists of a text. To which they reply, “Sure.”
It’s almost too easy. I often miss the days of the play date.
This selection originally appeared in my book "Notes Never Sent."
There may not be playdates anymore, but there are still ways to find new friends. My friends at www.friendblink.com are here to help you find new friends online. Its called friendblink.com. Friendblink is a social network to help you make friends in your area based on the activities you enjoy. Maybe there is movie you would like to see, a coffee shop you would like to visit or a beach you'd like to visit on a hot summer day. Find a friend at: www.friendblink.com.
