Dogs and Humans After Covid

Dog walking is a big deal in San Miguel, almost a status symbol. Pockets of people gather daily in multiple locations to give their pets the ‘pack’ experience of running, playing, growling, fighting, panting, competing and, of course, taking care of their bodily needs in public.  Their tongues are hanging out, feet covered in mud,… Continue reading Dogs and Humans After Covid

Greygirl and Friend

  Please meet my new doorman. He wandered in when my friend Jenipher found him lurking at my front door begging to find shelter bringing along his friend Greygirl. He took up a guarding position just outside my home with assurances he would welcome anyone who dared cross into my territory with a lick and… Continue reading Greygirl and Friend

Boys at Summer Camp

The dogs are at summer camp: running playing, scuffling, growling, sleeping. Doing what all kids do at camp when a deadly virus isn’t threatening. What freedom for them! And for me. I can relax without part of my brain registering if they need to go outside, or what mischief they are up to when they… Continue reading Boys at Summer Camp

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

Reality Sucks!

Oh, my gosh, the longer I’m in self-isolation the more addictions I discover I harbor. My internet went out this week and it was not a pretty picture around my casa. For three days I gnawed on my fingernails, stomped my feet, checked my modem a thousand times, paced my hallway, chewed another fingernail, watered… Continue reading Reality Sucks!

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

Learning to Garden

I know little if anything about planting, gardens, flowers, plants, soil, etc. Thank goodness for friends. I knew my patios needed some attention, plant wise, but I didn’t have a clue as to how to start nor what I wanted. A friend, who has had experience with soil of the earth projects, joined me at… Continue reading Learning to Garden

Innocent? No. Cute? Yes.

These two look innocent enough after yesterday’s shenanigans with toilet paper and body parts. Even though I was ready to disown them, once they settled down and went to sleep in my lap, I couldn’t stop smiling. They are two lovable boys.
