This blogging business is becoming hard work, and I don’t like hard work, however, on pondering of what might or might not interest you,little Ruby came over to nuzzle my hand, she just loves to love and be loved,
Dogs ask for so little but give so much. I look down at her little face and wish she could tell me about her life and what she went through, was it an uncomfortable experience or just something that she went along with, I wonder if she compares her life now with before and feels safe and happier? who knows, but the serenity of acceptance is something I’d love to achieve. The human race is always wishing for things to be better in however many way.s, we never seem to be fully content with our lot, Wishing the wage packet to be higher, the bills to be lower is natural, but the wishing for a bigger house or a better car, prettier hair, longer legs is crying to the moon if you know they are unachievable,
Shall I tell you what I’ve always yearned for? a. to be taller, and b.. to be able to tolerate the cold. . I hate being 5’0″ people don’t take you seriously when you’re small, you just don’t have that ‘commanding presence’ so you make up for it, by either acting the clown, as I often do, and being a little bit ‘mouthy’ as I sometimes am guilty of.
As for the cold, I just hate the fact that every time the thermometer falls below 18 deg. I am miserable and just want to wrap up warm and hibernate. I go though winter looking like a bag lady, I have so many clothes on.
Dogs don’t have these silly problems, as I said , they just accept things.
Right now I’ve got things into a bit of perspective, A good friend of mine Chris, has had to have an eye removed as a tumour was discovered behind it .
AlsoI’ve just heard of another death,the third since Christmas, this time the husband of an old friend of mine. Brian was a lovely, kindly and unassuming man, who helped me out at dog shows many times in the past, He and his wife Pearl, were a devoted couple. A couple of days previous another old dog friend passed on. Alan had been fighting a lung disease for a long time, contracted from working in the mines. Not long before that , Karina, another dog friend of many years standing succumbed to cancer, |She was a lovely lady and I mean lady, very glamourus and always beautifully turned out, and blessed with a kindly nature. She did very well in dogs, having trained Obed and Working trials champions, competed and judged at Crufts dog show. That has been three since Christmas, is this a sign of a bad year?
Though as you get on in years, it’s to be expected that your peers will leave this world., making you wonder when it’s your turn. 😦
Which brings me round full circle, that perhaps we shoud be moer like our dogs, cats and whatever pets we have, find contentment in what we have, and stop crying for the moon, we’ll be up there among the stars soon enough.
