Double Elevenie: Dog And A Stranger

Walking down
Outside on street
Stops and see dog

sees stranger
Outside on street
Darts behind her owner


Winter Morning Walk

Morning snow lays heavy on branches
A winter wonderland I wake up to
Snow is deep when we step out
Dog bounds ahead excited
Blue booties kicking up snow
As she goes racing
I try to keep up
Thanks goodness for retractable leash
I watch her play in snow
Reaching up close to her belly
Looks like if it snows anymore
She will get lost in mountain of snow
On this winter morning

Morning Repeating Walk

Every morning is the same
Dog and I take our walk
Down carpet stairs
Out to condo landing
Down to wooden stairs below
Then round the sidewalk
To our small street
Walk around our condo complex
Around cul-de-sac to stop and sniff
Then continue down little intersection
to the left and another cul-de-sac
Back the way we came
Up to clubhouse; stop and sniff
Around a short U
Then around to sniff a rock
Back down to intersection
To the left pass the lake
Back to sidewalk and around
Up the stairs; across the landing
Open door back inside
Wipe four paws and a belly
Then backup carpeted stairs
And repeat every single day
Unless a brief time for vacation

April 30 prompt from this site

Geese In Our Path

Going down stairs around
corner for dog walk with
my dog, two geese eating
in our path, didn’t care
we there. She started to
stalk toward them slowly
as they try waddling far
away; no use they are to
slow. Now honking loudly
they flap their wings to
fly over our heads as we
stand by, dog jumping to
excitedly up and down to
try and catch them, with
no such luck getting to
them at all. There always
next time you silly pup.
