dusk at saints

i love walking towards percy in the deepening light and seeing his tongue licking his lips in anticipation of his dinner tonight.

i love settling them all to bed and stopping for a look at spritely’s leg and feeling that happy safe glow that she did well for another day.

i love tunie’s quiet companionship at the side of my leg as i prepare all their dinners and knowing that she knows it will be good.

i love returning to the house and peering in the lighted windows to see them all sleeping in the fire’s glow.

the only thing more that i would wish for is to see them wrapped in a beloved humans arms as they rest from their happy day after they spent themselves in fun.

    Carol – I had poodle confusion today. Who was the little tiny one in the back area with Taffy? Whoever it was I had some serious lap time with them. By the way Taffy is a funny little sweet thing isn’t she. I also saw Sissy out of her bed today which is not something I have seen before! Hope your migraine has almost gone.

    if he was wearing a soft green sweater and had his tongue sticking out the side of his mouth…then that would be albert spice, mr. personality. taffy is freaking adorable…sissy is exercising more, she is self conscious now.
    thank you yes my migraine is currently on hold.
