Animals reflect our behaviour. The animals that we feel a closeness to, encounter often, engage with, attract, and so on; have a role to play in that moment of our lives. They offer an understanding to us of the ‘play’ that is our current experience, and give insight into the intricacies of our lives. Following is the understanding for the Shar Pei (the Chinese Shar Pei).
Shar Pei (Listen while you read)
So few realise the heart, the feelings, the niceties of the inner knowing. Won’t you join me?
(Well, well, well, dear friend, so you want to know the reflection of the Shar Pei; most commendable indeed.
You see, we are an amiable type; we lovers of the Shar Pei. We do not want any trouble; no sir-ee! We want only to go about our business, and be left alone. Yes sir-ee!
There’s really not much to say.
We enjoy life. We enjoy the smaller things of life, like going for walks, eating good food, yum; staying healthy; taking care of those we love.
Yes; there’s not much to us, you know.
We enjoy moonlight walks; sunlit shores; majestic mountains.
Oh yes, there’s really not that much to us, you see.
We have the need to be kind; do the right thing; remain upright in our thinking; be solid in our devotions.
No, there’s really not that much to us, you see.
We love to allow you to give your love; we love to be there to receive; we love to see you sharing your love.
No, there’s not much to us, you see. No, there’s not much to us, you see…..)

I do not think I have ever actually seen a Shar Pei. Have only heard about them. BIG wrinkles that look very soft. 🙂 Nice post! Such a friendly dog.
I haven’t really either… I’ve seen one or two ‘from afar’ as I’ve been out walking however, I haven’t been ‘close’ enough to one to ever pat, or get to know them. This reflection was a ‘lovely’ one to do. So gentle, unassuming, believing in doing the ‘right thing’ but with no hoo-hah about it (didn’t see it’s own qualities as being ‘special’); and yet they certainly are….. 😉
