sometimes
if I really really Let Go
I can BE Right Here
inside this moment
like that!!!

29 December


I remember this moment
How tiny
Floppy
And wiggly you were
How BIG the tennis ballie
How determined you were
Nice to see you that way again...
For a moment.

You have always stayed soft
To the touch
&
To the heart
I love that about you
so very much.

One thing I have loved learning from you:
EnJOYing Whatever
Has turned out to BE 
An entirely NEW-to-me way
To live
Simply.

It was a special Christmas, 2008
When Santa & the Rain Dear
Brought you a Lake to EnJOY

I don't know what they are
And likely wouldn't hazard a guess...
I just KNOW you think them.

covered in snow

whatever the sky sends

Of all the ways
Different or similar

there is nothing quite like
YOU
when you KNOW
what's in that pocket
and that
if you hold really still
in your question mark doggie-yoga pose...

You are inspiration
On four legs
And...

By all means, go again and again and again.

Your laugh
with all its snorts and woofs
and crazy dancing often involved
well...
just the thought of it gets me 
right in the giggler

Fluff-head

Downright Silly

Your thoughtiness is unmistakeable

This photo has taught me much
BEcause until we moved
You had little to smell
On the desert
Life by the ocean is different
Full
[overly so]
With snifforunities

Confident
Fearless
Eager

There is no one word for your way of living Life

I always love to see you like this
Full of silly
Ready for play
Your BEautimous imagination
Giving you wings

I am NOT the best listener
You have given me new ways to listen
And learn
And you are a gentle, persistent teacher
Thank You.

I often wonder
Watching you BE
Are you sorting things out
Taking them in
Or are you just
DOing nothing at all brainiac?!

30 November


This is something I learned from you
[and am often reminded of by you]
That we DO things
Sometimes
For no reason other than BEcause
WE CAN

29 November


We're all a little scared
And we hesitate
When we're DOing something new
Different
Scary
So BEing Brave is just how we roll

28 November


You are a wonderful listener
Especially to the sounds
BEyond my own range
Like snowfall
Approaching rain
Memory
And of course
Quiet

You often catch me by surprise
When you focus on something
And really... sometimes I don't know
For certain
If you are focusing or simply
EnJOYing some time to BE
A dog

26 November


This is what you have shown me
Slowly
Persistently
and 
Oh so patiently
That whenever I look and want to
I can find the time.

Memories are a sort of reflection
And pictures can bring the most remarkable details
To mind
As though it were happening Right Now
This very second in Time.

22 November


Although I know a lot of stuff
Little of that compares
To what YOU teach me
Daily
About BEing a friend

This is what you DO
What you teach
And what you bring out
In everyone you meet

After the Muddy ~  Sedona July 2008

It was Very Clear early on
You love the silliness of mud
And wet
And dirt
And this is what makes a morning walk
Morning Adventure

It's hard to DO, eh?!
Letting Go
When you don't really know
For certain
It's the last time...

18 November


Somedays
You DO this for hours
It is amazing to me
Watching you
Focused
Like you've got your Spirit on
Pause...

17 November


I've always wondered
If I am even close to knowing
What goes on
In your BEautimous mind...

Friday, November 16, 2012

16 November


Sometimes
[but only rarely]
There are no words
For saying
How much I REALLY love loving you...

Thursday, November 15, 2012

15 November


Something I love seeing
This view of you
Watching out your window
[how nice that it is just your height!!]
At what is waking up
And going on
Outside the Wee Cottage

Beach Morning December 2010

You know, I don't know
If you've always been a sniffer
Or if it's a new practise
MayBE it's just evolved more here
So many and varied scents that there are...

at the Dog Park October 2009

It wouldn't BE immediately apparent
[in fact, it is NOT EVEN apparent]
That you need to rest
Refresh
Recharge
When you are hopping
And flopping
In utter deLIGHT
