After much contemplation, chewing on bones and other digestible matters of contention. Not to mention, storms, fires, smokey haze, computer and human meltdown Frankie has decided whilst establishing his editorial control that he can best serve his readership by putting out a weekly magazine style email with a more varied, informative content and an expansive view of his universe and how he sees/sniffs/eats it. In the meanwhile here are a few captures of his recent frolicsome adventures. Frankie’s greatly relieved that his buddy Ralph has been sprung from the Big House and is happily if hotly re-united with his family in W.A. Surfs Up, Big Guy!
“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
“I don’t smoke, I try to eat right, and I love doing yoga and going for hikes with my dog.”
~ Sarah Chalke
Dawg’s View: My personal assistant was endeavouring to find an appropriate quote about smoke to emphasise our current situation of light filtered through layers of haze from bushfires burning not too far distantly north of us. We are greatful, praying for those less fortunate and for the bravery of firefighters everywhere.
“Try to make at least one person happy every day. If you cannot speak a kind word, think a kind thought. Count up, if you can, the treasure of happiness that you would dispense in a week, in a year, in a lifetime!”
~ Lawrence G. Lovasik

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
“Let your mind wander in simplicity, blend your spirit with the vastness, follow along with things the way they are, and make no room for personal views – then the world will be governed.”
“Sleep is the best meditation.”
~ Dalai Lama
“There is nothing that the busy man is less busy with than living; there is nothing harder to learn.”

“For man, the vast marvel is to be alive. For man, as for flower and beast and bird, the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive.
I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me. That I am part of the earth, my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea.”
~ D.H. Lawrence
“Worry adds no hours to a day, nor happiness to a smile, so it is not worth succumbing to, especially when it obscures the sight of potential.”
~ Johnathan Jena
