Some dogs bark thinking their voices should be heard above all others. A muzzle would fit one such as this quite nicely. Thank goodness my neighbor with the barker moved away. The sound of silence is ever so peaceful. Nice thought of the day, Frederic. I hope you'll share more of them.

there are those who embrace the rose with all its thorns and there are those who only want a rose and hide from thorns...which one are you?

i see my self heeling to the poetry guardianship. and ditto, i see others here, too (albeit cuddly and cute). i, like those others, try to grace this governance with compassion and loyalty in the same sense as a lapdog does to please its owner. there is that special bond that is mutual and rewarding between dog and its owner...or writer to reader ... a correlation that i'm surprised lit off fireworks.

a lapdog where I'm from is not a compliment it means you do whatever your master wants...please tell me what I slapped you with other than question your unreasonable and again where I'm from ugly you lash out once again

to PS admin. no shortage of lapdogs here is complimentary statement. they're cuddly and cute. how does he construe as adding ugliness. i made no attack on anyone unlike frederick parker. how many did he slap me with.

I have no idea what you are writing about but for some internal reason, you have felt to bring an ugliness to this blog.I feel sorry for you and the emotional mess that must be your truly shallow life.Forgive me if I don't know who or what you are.I would ask what's the point but self-absorption needs no reason other to satisfy an uncontrolled need to lash out

actually, Andrea, your comment has everything to do with it, my neighbor's dog barks once then stops
Date: 12/2/2017 11:13:00 AM
lol This is true. And we can either bark back, or ... put our headphones on and listen to some nice music, right? Hope your December is off to a great start, Frederic.
