DOGS ON A WALK.........AND A RIDE............

We were out for one of our long walks this past weekend and these are the dogs we came across.  Such cute dogs!






Bright eyes!














"He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea.  He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive me.  When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.  When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.  When I am a fool, he ignores it.  When I succeed, he brags.  Without him, I am only another man.  With him, I am all-powerful.  He is loyalty itself.  He has taught me the meaning of devotion.  With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace.  He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.  His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.  His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me...whenever...wherever...in case I need him. And I expect I will - as I always have.  He is just my dog."

Great shots - love the look of the Labrador in the car! With a bit of tongue in cheek, I can't help thinking that Gene Hill should have married his dog..?

Red said...

Gene Hill has nailed it with his description of a dog.

I love looking at dogs when I'm out and about. Some day, we will have a dog of our own. We need a fence put up first. But, for now, we are content with cats.

Happy Weekend,

Marie said...

Such sweet dogs you saw on your walk! And I loved the prose piece! Very profound! I can't seem to link in, or find the others who have linked in to the memes today...I hope it is a linky problem and will soon correct, but so far I haven't seen where anyone else has had an issue.

Linda said...

They are adorable! Fun to see!

Kay said...

The dog's eyes on the last photo are quite haunting. I'm wondering what he's/she's thinking. It's almost a Mona Lisa look.
