A Walk with The Old Man

The words could be written for Milo. Miss that old fella as much as ever.

Overcast, but warm

The perfect day to share

We have always enjoyed our walks together

He and I

 

No longer young

He struggles to keep up

But the trail is clear and gently rolling

 

We used to traverse the woods

Over stumps and deadfalls

Ridges and marshes

 

These days we simply stroll

Enjoying each other’s company

And the sweet musky scent of the forest

 

Soaking up the moments we have left

For he is getting no younger

I see it in the gray of his whiskers

And the hitch in his giddy-up

 

He’s always there for me

And I am always there for him

** One of the best dogs I’ve ever had….

W is for Wolf

The shrill ringing of the telephone woke Rebekkah. She had been dozing in front of the fire with her big grey wolf of a dog. Last night had been her first evening out since getting home for the Christmas break, and she had made up for lost time. She was in her final year studying... Continue Reading →

D is for Dog

Hot-diggity-dog, doggone it, dog days, you old dog, dog’s bollocks, work like a dog, let sleeping dogs lie, who let the dogs out? Dogs are central to our lives and our language. Man’s best friend. His protector, his soul mate, his work tool and his conscience. It takes a lot of effort to take a... Continue Reading →
