The band struck up a joyful tune With beat lively and fast; “Come join in, the host proclaim,” “We’ll party and have a blast!” But some of the guests ignored his words; Others just stood around.

A Little Family
A family has moved into the house in my back yard: Mr. and Mrs. are setting up housekeeping. Sometimes, I’m sure they’re arguing! Before long, there will be kids: Little wren chicks. They’ll stay until they can fly; then the whole family will move away.
The Adolescence of Puppyhood

If this were mid October or so and it reached the same mark on the thermometer, I would say it’s too cold to work outside. The difference? Spring fever. True, 52 is warm, compared to say 21.

The new things are like trying to catch clouds OrContinue reading “Writer’s Block”
“Great Happiness” is a Yellow Lab
Allow me to introduce Alissa. Among other things, her name means, “Great happiness.” She is almost 16 weeks of age now and already has a number of commands under her belt. She is a very sunny little girl with that sweet Labrador demeaner. Even when she is being a bit of a dickens, she isContinue reading ““Great Happiness” is a Yellow Lab”
This is Felicia. She is a black lab/border collie mix, about 13 months old now. I adopted this little lady from the Humane Association’s animal shelter… When I first met her, all she could do was cower. Once she got through that, she became a bit aggressive, mostly from severe anxiety disorder. Felicia has madeContinue reading “Felicia”
