Just Jake

I talk to him when I’m lonesome like; and I’m sure he understands.  When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat.  For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that.  ~W.

Speaking Doglish

Before. On his way to a 2 night sleepover...not happy.


You could hear Jake say …

Why is all of my stuff in the car?

Where are you dumping me this time?

Are you ever coming back?

I don’t care if you buy me a new toy …

I want to go home.

Funny little kid!

After. We Better Be Going Home!

On Frozen Pond

Breathing in nature, even in the dead of winter … have to!

This came to mind, during my walk with the dog this morning.

Wouldn’t it make sense to proclaim Monday a National holiday?

It would change life as we know it.

P.S. to Jake … thanks for making me get my butt out of the chair for a walk every morning, especially Mondays.
