today I’m grateful for dogs. mutts. puppies. blind golden retrievers. large black hounds. little black curs. regal tawny rhodies, wiggley boxers, piggy-snouted pits. puppy pictures. chubby handed babies clutching a whole pile of ’em. Dogs period. They just make life a little less serious when it needs to be taken more lightly and a little more serious about basics: food. sleep. romp in crap. Sometimes they take a crap all over the floor – and give you something important to do. right then. when you were having a pity party. by yourself. they’re all -nope – I took a shit – a couple of them. the ugly kind. fix it. or live in the stench. and – being southern, I like that for metaphor too. I’m seriously thinking UA should have a UP collection today (unabashed pup – come on – let me be ridiculous) little jackets with pockets for a ball, some rope, a bone? No? I’ve gone round the bend? It happens.
Vega. At the beach. Doing her duty.
Hope y’all have a good Friday.
