My Dog

Trusting and loyal, a heart filled with love. 

When we work together, sometimes is difficult for me to watch my sheep,  because I watch her.  

She fascinates me. 

She amazes me and makes me wish I could for just one moment hear what she thinks. 

See what she sees...

Experience life from her perspective.

Understand the source of unwavering devotion & feel worthy of the love.  

She has no expectations, happy with what I am able to give.

She is grateful for every morsel of food, stroke on her fur, a kind word & my smile.  

Her warm brown eyes calm me, center me, connect me to the earth.  

My dogs bring smiles to my lips, even when the day has left indelible lines upon my face.  

"Thorns may hurt you, love desert you, sunlight turn to fog;
but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."

What a wonderful post. Brynn is beautiful, and she's got wonderful eyes. You're lucky to have a friend as wonderful as that.

I like the photo where she is turning back to you with her big smile as to say, "I've got it totally under control." Nice pics.

Great pix. Snagged of course.
I like the turn back photo and the one where it looks like she is laying there with happy thoughts running through her head.
