A Heroic Rescue

Tonight, I let Eowyn play in my empty soda box while I restocked the refrigerator. Being a very unique little puppy, she promptly got stuck inside the box! I couldn't find my camera, so I grabbed my computer and used it to snap pictures, while laughing hysterically.

While I was busy laughing, Jasper took pity on his little sister and decided to play the hero! He grabbed hold of the box, pulled it (and her) across the room, and then began to chew his way through the box, clearly intent on rescuing Eowyn! He managed to dig her out, then the two of them shared a tender bonding moment by tearing what was left of the box into smithereens. There's a big cardboard mess now, but I'm too amused to care!

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
