Your face is so expressive
Revealing more about
What I imagine you're thinking
Than most would give "a dog"
Credit for pondering...

DOing Roly-Poles 
2005 Sedona

Going Roly-Poling
Making Angels
In the red rock
In the sand
And best of ALL
In the wet soft grassy places
And EVEN
On the sidewalk for belly rubs
Or Right Here at Home
When it's only you & me
How you LOVE to Roly-Pole

Something very rare
Unusual and
Almost impossible to imagine
Is your sadness...
But I caught it here
In the briefest of blinks
And it breaks my heart 
Just to remember it.

Such a difference
This photo, just oh, 2 months
[mayBE even less]
And you dwarf your
Deer Mama
While your love
BEgins, too, to almost dwarf
YOU!
You are most certainly
"Love on 4 Legs"

So often I see you
Like this
Moreso with people, Now
And usually leaning in
As though you are filling them up
With your love
&
Your sweetheartedness...
Seeing this photo of you long ago
I'm thinking this was where you "learned"
From your "Deer Mama"
How we each "hold" love and share it
Simply
By touch and leaning.

Out on the porch
In the cool night air.
Such a happy girl

To keep together
Side-by-side
And just

Gentle as you are
You have such a fierceness
When playing
With your "ba's"
Even with ME!!!
And you can always
ALWAYS
Make me roll in laughter
At your oh-so-scary growlingness...

There is something wrong with this picture.
NOT Only DO you NOT have blue eyes...
Whatever were you DOing chewing on a plastic bag?!
I have made some wrong decisions
And this was definitely one of them.
Nevertheless
I love this face
The same one I often see
The one that has the magic to make me smile.

You are my wild "child"
Who loves to BE free
And this photograph
More than most
Captured your deLIGHT
At running far and free
You GO, Gracie~Girl!!!

At first, I didn't recognise this photo of you. And then I looked a little closer and realised where it was and when it was taken.

I can read you so well, and Now I see WHY. You've had the same body language since we met, when you were just 5 weeks old.

As I look on this little version of you I see that you have always been this eager and attentive to people, places, and things that you love.

I love you, my BEautimous Girl...

You have such an amazing Imagination
And I think if you COULD
[and mayBE you CAN]
You would write wonderful stories
Of all the magical places
Your Imagination takes you...

You are such a character
So clearly AWARE of yourself
And
Lucky for ME
A clown who can make me
LAUGH

Sedona Morning July 2008

How you loved standing on the rocks
Listening to the sounds of
Morning
and
Water falling over the red rocks.

I suppose
If I hadn't seen it
A few bazillion times,
I, too, might doubt
A dog could
REALLY
Laugh!!!
