* Haiku – dog love

sitting pretty dog


Dog sitting pretty

waiting for that special treat

Love is food is love


Contented puppy

every need is being met

apart from nature’s


The call of freedom

Comes alive in vibrant dreams

Nature is true love


dog running in nature

Today I’m sitting with the question… What can we learn from dogs about our true nature?

  1. Oh…so so much!!! The one thing that strikes me about my puppy is that every single morning he opens his eyes…He looks at me and then he starts his happy wiggle dance…so full of JOY!!!! Never fails…every single day he wakes and he is HAPPY…OVERJOYED! Yes…There is a lot we can learn from all animals! Thanks Val!! πŸ™‚ ❀

  2. I think we learn from dogs how selfish some of us can be – not so with dogs, they give their all, they find joy in the simplest of things, best of all, they love us, warts an’ all!

    • Hhhmmm right now I’m seeing my Welsh Terriers getting obsessed with squirrels, chipmunks, and … this is new … moles moving under ground. Maybe we mammals have our obsessions, but there’s nothing to beat the love of a pooch in our hearts πŸ™‚

  3. Maybe happiness and “joie de vivre” and the meaning of faithful friendship. I think people who abandon their dogs (or cats) are murderers: they break and “kill” the heart of sincerely loving innocent creatures… beautiful poem and important question Val xxoo

    • Thank you for your touching words Frederic. They give so much and are abused by so many.
      Dogs and cats are indeed faithful friends…. and I can’t imagine life without them! (Well perhaps not the cats as I’m allergic to them πŸ˜‰
