This little ditty is quickly approaching the one-million-view mark on YouTube.

Between that and five different people having sent it to me in the past couple of weeks, I thought this would be a good time to share it — if it hasn’t already showed up in your inbox.

The artist is Wendy Francisco, who you can learn more about  on her website.

Wendy was born in 1955 in Boston, grew up in Del Mar, California and graduated from San Diego State University. She has been been involved with music, art, writing, photography, nature and animals since she childhood.

She learned guitar at age 8 and began to write her own songs. She was asked to perform often and in 1979, was signed to Sparrow Records. Wendy has since traveled all over the United States and beyond doing concerts. Her voice was used at the opening of “Dear John” with Judd Hirsch.

In 2008, she participated in the editing of the book “Wesley The Owl” by author Stacey O’ Brien. Most recently, she created this You Tube video, her first animation.

Wendy, according to her website, struggles with modern day religion which she believes limits most people and women in particular. Wendy believes that religion often masks the character of G-O-D.

Wendy is married to singer/songwriter Don Francisco, and lives in the mountains of Colorado where she continues to produce art, writings, and music. She also raises Friesian cross horses, Ragdoll cats, and Colorado Mountain Dogs.

People who enjoyed this (as I did) might enjoy reading “i and dog” by the Monks of New Skete. They’re not celebrity name droppers up there at the abbey, but the brothers have been raising and training very fine German Shepherds for about 40 years now. They maintain that dogs have a great deal to teach us if we will only pay attention. It is a lovely, gentle, generous book.
