Stoic Dog Won’t Budge

Dog looks at me: stoic

Will not budge from spot

She stares at me

As I tug leash

To get her to move

For it is too cold outside

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
