Look you now at the way, some respond in emails!
One, or two words,...Read More

More than any animal I see.
So I stay away,
Every single day
In his giant jaws my flesh I see.

As they were once my demigods

That for me is the truth 

Because they meant more to me than you

The Adventure
"Walk" - a simple word uttered.
The dogs jump at the door,
that old, creaky, wooden door,
at the mere mention of the word.
Open mouthed with tongues hanging out of the side,
panting and whining with glee,
they wait impatiently, watching for the turn of...Read More

'Whiskers'! That's who we called him and he passed through once a year
with his swag and billy; this time with a 'heeler' dog close near.

to keep away from that old man...Read More

Like a Vet

I found groups of dogs like they were my own

No other than Jumbo, the finest of all, now alone

I did not see my face in the mirror
One morning, I awoke from the sleep,
Like all those previous days.
And after all daily routines were done,
I planned for a morning walk.

I knew, everything was fine.
Tooth brush to the cup of tea,
Cloth to the walking shoes.
Everything line by line.
And ...Read More

Backwards he walks watching them follow
watching them borrow closed mindedness
from life and words filled with need.

Pain erases the eyes as life blinks
Love shades the ears silenced
The tongue wags.  The tail sings peace.

What Autumn Means to Me
As I walk along the pathway
   I feel the warmth
Of the sun’s rays,	
   I start to notice my surroundings
Of leaves and their many different shapes.

Trees start to change their color
   Into bright red, orange,...Read More

   Toro was waiting anxiously at the local
dog shelter, with sad lonely eyes. He paced
back and forth, as the days passed him by.

Something created. Does the creator think ahead
or spill a storm. Rain happens. We supply the
reasons. Evaporation of water collecting over
huge expanses, condensed and pushed as clouds
over the land. We say it makes us sad or depressed.
We want to cry.

This German Shepherd, friendly and

secure throughout the night.

For he was always with us,
our protector,...Read More

Dave Grigger is marinating in the tub.
Stopped by the Dollar-General and
