Question: "The dogs seem to play a huge role in your life?
Answer: "One of the reasons I love dogs is because I think they perceive the world, things in the world, that we as humans don't perceive. I think there's something kind of just spiritual about it. They're just completely in the experience. And so many times, we as human beings remove ourselves from the present by reliving the past or worrying about a future, neither of which we can control, and we destroy our present, and we lose all the power that we have, the ability to just be. That is really what I learn from dogs. That's the thing that I would like to apprehend most about dogness.
Q. Do you sometimes kick yourself and say, like, "Let's get more 'dog' right now"?
A. Yeah, I do. I do. I mean, I really do."
