The Dogs Have It…


Yesterday…was National Dog Day…of course…I didn’t realize it…until after the blog was written…but…Bertha…is chattering on about it this morning…

Reminding me…of…my different relationships with dogs over the years…how some have been my…loyal and loving friends…more soul mates than anything else…and…how…others…have frightened me…threatened me…especially when I ride my bike in unfamiliar territory

Bertha…says…dogs aren’t inherently one way or the other…it depends on the situation…she reminds me…that the dog who was so determined…to…take me down…when I innocently rode my bike past its house…was warm and loving to the children in the family…

In fact…she said…it’s a lot like my life…there’s not a lot of…black and white…but more like…innumerable shades of gray…and…quite often…just like with dogs…it’s all in how I approach a situation…that makes the difference…coming in…humbly…with a smile and a calm voice…and…maybe a treat…goes a long way…

Hmmm…

PS…Happy belated National Dog Day…to…Betsy and Maybelle…two of the best friends I ever had…I still miss my girls…
