Dog Psalm 48

Two baby birds
about to take their maiden flight into the wide world.
Fly with a friend. It sweetens life.

Quilting Bee

I like to help by being the center of attention.
I'm enjoying this Gees Bend style quilt.
When their not looking I'll nibble off a corner.
I love quilts, they are so tasty!

Call My Name

Sometimes I think I hear a deer in the woods
call my name, asking me to come play.

Dog Psalm #47

Let your soul be known.
Hold your beloved in your loving gaze.
Read their thoughts, but do not judge.
Lead them gently towards Goodness.

Frog Man

Lounging 'frog man style' is a good way
to cool off your entire underside.
You should try it. If your knees can take it.

Pillow Talk

In the mornings I whisper sweet nothings in her ear
and tell her about my plans for the day - 
chipmunk chasing, bug hunting, napping.

Dog Psalm #46

Grace is the shade and shelter of trees,
who know the secrets of a hundred years,
on this hot July day.

When rumors are truth

You go for a car ride and come back with a haircut.

Say What?

I think I heard rumors.
That I'm going to the groomers.

103 degrees

The best way to beat the heat
is to get up early and coat your entire underside
with dew from the grass.

Dog Psalm #45

The Patron Saint of growing things
always includes you in her prayers:
may you flourish and blossom.
Her devotion endures all weather and seasons.

Door Yard

The plants have inspired me 
to request rosemary and sage roasted chicken for dinner.
A dog can dream, can't he?

Audience of One

At the 250th Fourth of July Celebration
the reader of the Declaration of Independence said,
'I've done this the last three years.
This is the first time I've had an audience.'

Dog Psalm 44

Farther than the eye can see
extends the beauty of the universe.
You are in the midst of it.
