Daily Dawg goes Weekly

 

 

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!

Elegant as a dog

“Elegance is usually confused with superficiality, fashion, lack of depth. This is a serious mistake: human beings need to have elegance in their actions and in their posture because this word is synonymous with good taste, amiability, equilibrium and harmony.”

~ Paulo Coelho

As they are

DOGVIEW: Sunday, a windy day in the park, not happy about the leash, but the fragrant messages are fabulous…and the physio’s working, my back leg’s following me

“Mindfulness helps us freeze the frame so that we become aware of our sensations and experiences as they are, without the distorting colouration of socially conditioned responses or habitual reactions.”
~ Henepola Gunaratana

On the Road Again

On the road again
Just can’t wait to get on the road again
The life I love is making music with my friends
And I can’t wait to get on the road again

On the road again
Goin’ places that I’ve never been
Seein’ things that I may never see again
And I can’t wait to get on the road again

~ Willie Nelson

UPDATE: Frankie’s been going for drives to help him alleviate some of his doggie recovery boredom. We think it’ll be awhile yet, physio allowing, to actually get on the road again, but we can tell by the tapping of his paws to the music it will happen.

Poets & Bones

“Poets are the only people to whom love is not only a crucial, but an indispensable experience, which entitles them to mistake it for a universal one.”
~ Hannah Arendt
