define what loyalty really means.
i was born as a taurus, in the chinese year of the dog. years ago i read a combo horoscope that simply said..."faithful fido"
thats pretty much me. for me loyalty once given...is hard to dislodge. i still do things unseen in the back ground to help support those who have closed certain doors.
it is the animals who taught me about loyalty...if i hadn't learned i couldn't care for the phoebe's, the reggie's out there. i couldn't keep caring for percy who worries me sometimes. i couldn't do my best for the hanks who fly at me in rage every day they were here...or the dixies who hate my guts.
but really what is loyalty..and why is it given and then taken away? the animals know the loss of it..every single one of them here...and we their caregivers know of it too.
is it a bond to be broken easily or does it take something totally horrific to destroy?
do we in fact think we give it..but when push comes to shove (like when moving, or frustrated) we find, really it is not there?
or do we not understand what loyalty really is so we change our minds?
i was thinking about this last night with the bed buddies around me. they know what loyalty is now...but did they before?
