- I wish all the beardies and dogs of the world would
live happily and comfortably,
loving their humans and being loved and cared by their humans
till the very end of their lives.
I wish no beardies and dogs would ever feel loneliness, fear,
pain, hunger, or thirst
- because of the humans' neglect, greed, irresponsibility
- I also wish my grandson Little John, who left us
as a young pup, is happy up there
- all cured and surrounded by his friends and relatives.
That's what I wish upon a star.
