As corny as it may sound, I composed a song about my dog Timber. She is 15 years old and we have been together since she was nine weeks of age. Although she was very young, I was already her third owner. She had been beaten by the previous owner and tied to a tree for long periods of time. Consequently, she and I have had quite a journey for a decade and a half. She has also been my survey partner for the past 14 years and we've found many wolves together. As her life draws to a close, I have many thoughts of how our existence has been so intertwined. Therefore, the song has a reflective nature at the beginning to portray her difficult entrance into this world, and again at the end of the song, as the life force drains from her a little bit each day. In the middle, however, the song portrays a life lived fully and completely.
