The Wisdom of Dogs

Breakfasting on wild blackberries plucked on the fly

as I follow the familiar path, my two reckless dogs

barreling ahead turning now and then to make sure

I am still coming along, their rows of teeth

making crazy grins.  Come on! they seem to say

for they have no interest in blackberries or wildflowers.

They don’t even know it’ll be a short walk today,

things to do, places to go, people to see, but still

for them, every moment counts.  Come on! 

Something great might be around that bend!

Come on!  And I do, I follow, knowing

full well that they are right.

  3. I love it too! Our dogs are so good at living in the moment. I try to remember to follow their lead!

  4. Your dogs look like my Miles, Shari! Saw them on your Facebook page. SOOOO beautiful. (Just like Miles.)

  5. I just had to spend 2 days w/o them as I traveled quickly to SD and back. It was awful.
