Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Good Dog

Baron; keeping watch.

When the Man waked up he said,
"What is Wild Dog doing here?"
And the Woman said,
"His name is not Wild Dog any more,
but the First Friend,
because he will be our friend
for always and always and always."
Rudyard Kipling


Have we met?
 I'm Baron, walking companion, ball chaser extraordinaire, licker of faces, chaser of squirrels, and world class dog paddler!
 My nose is soft as velvet, my heart even softer.


Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them,
Filling an emptiness we don't even know we have.
Thom Jones

Hmmm, I wonder if she's ever gonna take me for a walk...


Because really, you would think that she would remember how much I love to go for walks. Oh mamma, you haven't forgotten the walk have you?


Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring—it was peace.
Milan Kundera

Walk? Did you say WALK? Because I think I clearly heard you say WALK!


Nothing but love has made the dog lose his wild freedom, to become the servant of man.
D.H. Lawrence



 
Hooray! I KNEW you said walk! Of course I'll go for a walk with you!
Now let me see... don't forget my tennis ball, the squished one with the squeaker in it
...and the treats--we'll need at least 3 treats
...and maybe a poop bag or two; cause ya just never know...

 Hey Posie-cat, guess what? We're going for a WALK! Can you believe it?
I am the luckiest dog on earth!
 
My Baron.
Love this guy!

Isn't it the truth? What a gorgeous pup! My hub and I have to spell things when making plans around our Aussie Beau, and he's figured out that we're talking about him and gets excited. He even talks, we just can't understand him. Now I'll know what he's sayin'.

Gorgeous. I grew up with Rudyard Kipling - hence my blog name.
And I share our home with two 'cats who walk by themselves'.

Your dog is beautiful! Such an expressive face and yes, dogs are good and can be more human than humans sometimes. This summer there were three gorgeous chocolate lab puppies at the flea market for free! It was so tempting to bring one home. We look, hold, pet and long for a dog but hold off for a few reasons getting one. We just took a long trip and wondered what we would have done with a dog in the heat we saw. In Telluride, Colorado almost everyone in town had a dog. It was amazing!

Awwww! What a wonderful post. Your dog looks absolutely huggable.

I just came from another blog a little while ago that included a link to an article about a dog who alerted his family about the babysitter abusing their young child. His behavior prompted them to set up a hidden camera, and they caught the abuser in action. (She's in jail now.) Dogs are awesome.
