As November comes to a close, we’re given the opportunity to choose our theme for Sally’s challenge. I’ve chosen “Animals”, so that I could feature this fetching canine that caught my eye one day while we were driving. S/he looks very intent, but there’s just something about a dog with its head out, smelling all those smells we can’t and feeling the wind in its face, that makes me smile.
“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”
“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.”
