Observational Haiku

Now that I’m writing a blog only once a week (sometimes twice) I find myself struggling to find a good title that sums up my weekly adventures as a dog dog walker. On Monday I think it should be one thing, but by Wednesday I’ve changed my mind 100 times. By Friday, I’ve already forgotten half of them.

So this week, I decided that I would do a title for each day, trying to reflect each day’s happenings in a pithy phrase or two. Kind of like a haiku of my observations only I’m not going to follow the strict haiku rules, okay?

Monday: PATTERNS

We are three dogs and one human walking through a familiar neighborhood.

Across the street we see three humans and one dog.

“A parallel universe?” I asked Tyson.

“Hm, or is it called an alternate universe?” he said.

“Negative space, I think,” said Rosie.

Tuesday: SEASONAL CONFUSION

“Rubin?”

“Yes, Rosie?”

“It’s April, isn’t it?”

“Uh, I believe so, why do you ask?”

“It feels like November. I thought for sure that April followed March, but I could be wrong I suppose.”

“No you’re right on both accounts. It feels like November, but it’s really April.”

“Surprising then that any flowers are in bloom with these cold temperatures.”

Wednesday: WHY IS WEDNESDAY SPELLED SO WEIRDLY?

On Wednesdays we walk Monty. I love Wednesdays because Monty is my best friend in all the world. He is both regal…

…and goofy…

…and this makes him a perfect match for me.

Of course, Monty LOVES Rosie. I guess I’ll just have to share him.

Thursday: DOUBLE THE PLEASURE

Rosie and Tyson’s Mom was in a pickle. We helped — first in the morning on a nice long walk to the funny waterfalls in the park…

…and then later, just with Rosie where we stood high on the hill and prayed for sunshine!

 

 

Friday: PRAYER WORKS AND THE ADVENTURES OF RUBIN-TIN-TIN!

Rosie and Tyson found some hints of Spring…

…and Monty and I found the SUNSHINE TRAIL!!

 

 

 

Have a great weekend everyone!
