Stare At Deer

On walk I saw a deer
I stopped to stare
Deer was very aware
As I drew near
We stared for some time
No move did we make
I had to take a break
Was the deer’s dinnertime
I continued my walk
And didn’t do the stalk

Few days ago Kana saw a deer and didn’t do what Chelsey did which was to chase it. Kana just stared at it for a long time.

Review On Geese

Outside I hear honking geese.
These creatures annoy all the time.
They are constantly in the way
Whether walking to get to my condo door
Or in middle of street not moving
When I drive toward them.
You have to keep eye out for their droppings.
They go anywhere they please.
They make a fuss when your dog comes out.
Honking loudly across the pond
Even though they are not near you and your dog.
I recommend not having a lake nearby.
Geese loves lakes and will come every back year.

Sunday Almanac Walking With Dog

Its rainy today as I walk the dog
She wears her pink rain coat
Covering her from pelting raindrops
She sniffs and spies something edible on ground
I quickly pick up bread from street
Toss it into one of our trash bin along the way
I keep her way from trash bins
For some trash litters the ground
We continue walking in rain
I dream of flying away from this weather
Maybe on the back of a Gryphon
Maybe aliens are running this world
I don’t anymore in these changing times
Flowers are starting to open finally
Their colors standing out
In this dreary, brown, green, grey rainy day
I wonder if we will see the moon tonight
So I can say, Goodnight Moon
I sigh as we continue on our walk

Springtime At Home

Spring has comes but it doesn’t feel like Spring.
The weather dips up and down; cold to warm; rain to snow.
One day nice and sunny. Next cold and cloudy.
White buds start to grow on trees I see from window
Slowly they will being to open to show their flowers.
I saw the blue heron fly across light-blue sky yesterday.
I exclaimed to my dog, “The blue heron has come to visit our lake today!”
My dog didn’t care as she was relaxing full length upon her bed.
And five minutes later I saw the heron fly away to some other place.
I sighed, “Maybe next time I will have my camera ready to photograph the heron again.”
I had been practicing my violin just one of many things to keep me busy in these trying times.
I keep busy with painting, reading, violin practice, learning, cooking, walking and playing with dog,
checking emails, working on computer, and what ever interest comes calling to me that I enjoy.
To many things I want to do in a day.
I try to change what I want to work on.
Computer ends up claiming me longer then excepted.
I make time for dog.
We take walks. Walk four times day.
We change were we walk.
She loves them. Keeps her happy.
I want my dog to be happy in these times.
She is a social dog who craves attention from people and dogs.
She is not happy not to go to dog events (I too miss dog events).
In meantime I have more time with her.
It is the season of shedding– I brush her creamy fur out
To get rid of loose fur tufting out in cotton ball clumps.
I pet her more.
I try to teach her about toys since she was puppy mill rescue who didn’t own one.
I hold her, snuggle, talk to her.
She is my companion I am glad to have around.
She keeps me busy. I love her.
It is quite on our walks up to a special place where hardly any people walk.
I hear, “When will it get back to normal”.
I don’t know but I am enjoying my time off with my dog.
As I had to be at work five times a day.
Now I have all day with her.
I keep our routine almost similar to when I was working.
I try to keep life normal for her.
She doesn’t understand what’s going on around her.
She looks at me with sad brown eyes, “when can we go shopping again.”
I tell her we have to wait. I will let her know.
I comfort her; give her space.
I gave her a brief foster dog friend to be with.
She helped him out– showed him humans are nice.
He is now adopted into home.
Now it’s her and I. She has me all to herself.
And I am glad I got a chance to foster.
As I love dogs; I got a chance to help a dog.
Life is strange at the moment.
I make the best of it.
I will make best of it in these trying times.

Walk Archive With Dog

Flowers are blooming on our walk
My dog wonders towards them
Sniffing finding their smells captivating
I pluck a daffodil; smelling them too
They smell of spice with hint of vanilla
I take it with me to photograph later
We continue our walk around
Admiring the flowers blooming around us

The Sun Rise

I see sun rise in early morning
Walking my dog on our round
Light touching my face sending warmth
I see sky brighten; opening the day
Brings a smile to see sun
Its golden disc radiant
Bringing in a new day
Just to see this little pleasure
Early in morning on walks
On a Saturday morning with no work
