Grateful for Canine Companions

I am grateful on this day, 
Monday, 20th December 2010, 
for
Canine Companions ~

My two boys 
Dougal&Jasper
have made many appearances
here on 'finding my bliss'
but how could I complete my gratitude 
without giving these boys
a mention? 


Dougal came into our lives
unexpectedly, at a time 
when we were experiencing turmoil!


His personality?
We say he is his 'own dog,'
knows what he wants and goes for it!
As a puppy he made his escape quite a few times. 
Sometimes when we go for a walk in the 
deserted local country park at night 
he will decide 'he's not going'
and puts the 'brakes on'
so we leave him,
he waits there
until
we return.
He's very stubborn, clever, sensitive and almost human!
He is totally loyal to me,
 keeps guard of me always.


Jasper, Dougal's offspring
on the other hand 
is a complete softy.

He's very obedient, always wants to be cuddled,
he loves you to sit holding his paw,
never strays from my side.

 

These two boys have brought me such pleasure,
every morning as I awake 
and lay stroking them
I think to myself
how 
grateful I am
they are in my life.
'BLISS'

dear sue,
i love how tender hearted you are. i have a sentinel too. a cat so spotted black and white he appears to be wearing cow pajamas. i am so grateful for his companionship. he is always willing to nap beside me when i am ill. purrrfect that he is always in his jammies and ready to sleep!
our pets are so much more than words convey.
reassuring us that we truly are never alone.

so glad for your happiness.....so grateful for you in my life.

I'm grateful for these canine companions also. They give us such pleasure. I am grateful that you give them a comfortable home, a dog-heaven when I sometimes can't because of my living and work arrangements. Love C xxx

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
