A Dog and a Gate


I might need a new gate, but I sure don't need to replace this sweet dog.  


I don't need to replace my Jack Russell Terrier either, but I almost could have yesterday.  After smooching her extensively, I soon realized she had been rubbing her head on a dead mole in the yard.  

Ahhhhh........love.

I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands. 
When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; 
then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat.  
For the Good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, 
but never a friend like that.

  14. Pups do love the smell of a dead and/or disgusting thing don't they? And we never seem to notice until it's too late! Oh well when that happens and I drag out the hose the girls just look at me with bewildered expressions and don't understand at all why I don't share their joy in the amazing aroma they've found for us.

  23. A dog can really worm its way into your heart, can't it?

  24. Oh man! I can certainly identify with that feeling and that smell. My dogs do some of the same things...that smell! Lol

  25. That pooch looks sweet, and I love the poem! It's so true--nobody loves you like your dog does. And nobody puts their nose in bad places more than a dog. Oh, the stories I could share.

  26. So you were wearing Stink De Dead Mole, fun!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ah...but I love how dogs are so excited to us, their human family members, that even cleaning oneself after rubbing a dead mole isn't a priority. (I would wash my hands after touching a dead animal, don't get me wrong, but I admire dogs for cherishing every moment with loved ones. Humans should be more like that.)

  28. Hee hee -- I often wonder where the mouth has been while the tongue is licking me. Great shot!

  31. My best friend in Brooklyn had two Jack Russels. They are such loyal and lovable dogs--almost like children!
