Watching

I watch. I watch from my isolation chamber: cozy, confined, comfortable, constricted. My casa secures me during this time of fear, concern and self-incarceration, so I watch. I watch the sky lighten, fill with color, provide moisture, heat the planet, and darken. I watch my roommates tug for possession of canine toys, growling, chasing, then… Continue reading Watching

Doglets are My Smile of the Week

During this time of isolation and remote contact with others, I have found what brings me smiles are my two doglets. Actually, only one would be considered a doglet, and that would be the smaller of the two, Radar. Sergio the younger and larger, doesn’t qualify for the doglet term since he is a bit… Continue reading Doglets are My Smile of the Week

This first picture is of Radar, left, and my sister’s love Sammy engaging in playtime, in motion on… Continue reading Precious Pets for Lens Artists Photo Challenge

End of an Era

An era ended this week. My 18-year-old doglet made her final journey to the vet, and drifted out of this lifetime in the arms of my sister. Paula volunteer to be Chili’s carrier for this trip since I’m out of the country. And I am grateful for her offer. Chili, as you may know, was… Continue reading End of an Era

Radar

I did it; exactly what I said I wouldn’t do. I got a doglet, not an ‘old’ one, like I promised myself, but an 8 month old pup. High maintenance, demanding, shedder, precious, busy, smart, energetic, darling, shy, bold, playful, attention seeker. That translates into ‘High Maintenance’, and covers the high points of Radar. He… Continue reading Radar
