Rad Grad

i'm sitting here thinking
how i have been blessed
by my daughter Amy
she's simply the best

she's a gift, she's a challenge
now a new college grad
magna cum laude
she's totally rad

wag your tail, it's wednesday

i walk down the stairs 
and there is my Pug 
lying under the table
on the dining room rug

it makes me feel happy
to see her sweet face
warmed by the sun
in her usual place

The Shoot

If your kids are gone on Mother's Day
Do something fun anyway




so... today was Stella's photo shoot with Amanda Bradshaw from frolic Photography for the book 1000 Pugs.  Amanda is traveling the country (and Canada) to photograph Pugs! Her Pug, Puglet was there to greet us when we arrived. He took a liking to Stella and was a bit ...amorous. We chatted with the other Pugs and their people until our turn. Boy, that Amanda really knows how to work a Pug! Stella seemed to enjoy her time with Amanda and by the end of the shoot she was even cooperating (with Stella I mean).  We loved it.  Here are some shots of the shots...

Happy Mother's Day

oh mother's day
oh mother's day!
you come each year
in early may

and everywhere 
on this sweet earth 
we celebrate
the gift of birth!

wag your tail it's wednesday

dandelion days

first they're yellow 
then they're fluff 
along comes the mower
life is tough

i was feeling down and blue 
thought of things that i could Do 
like check other people's blogs
to see pictures of their dogs

or i could go out for a walk
see a neighbor, stop to talk
take some photos of the flowers
and then scrap away the hours

so i opened up my door
saw the sun and wanted more
walked a while and soon i knew
'twas just the thing to Do

as my gloom started to lift
the day became a gift
and all of nature's wonders
helped to pull me from out under

so if you're feeling blue
there are things that you can Do
i know that word is key
if you're feeling unhappy

if you can't Do it alone 
call me on your telephone
because i have been their too
without the strength to Do

but today i'm Doing better
so let's fight this thing together
Do not let depression win
because I love you, my dear friend!
