A Droving we will go

 

“For the drover’s life has pleasures that the townsfolk never know.”

~ Banjo Paterson

A Dog’s View: Whilst not enjoying the energetic expansiveness of adventure that my buddy Ralph is experiencing in old blighty or being soothed with wise counsel, advice, perhaps a session of hypnotherapy by my other buddy Magic. Here I am at my physiotherapist Marie’s property, knowing that if they’d let me of this leash that the potential for droving would be not inconsiderable. Still tomorrow being another day I’ve been promised a trip to Evandale, there to man a stall and possibly receive a multitude of appreciation and pats. Will keep you posted.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy ~ the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
~ Brené Brown

“When the man woke up he said, ‘What is Wild Dog doing here?’ and the Woman said, ‘His name is not Wild Dog any more, but the First Friend, because he will be our friend for always and always and always.”
~ Rudyard Kipling

UPDATE: As you can see from the photos today, Frankie is much more relaxed and flexible.
He has an over exuberance of energetic vitality and is doing his best to quieten our pleas for him to rest-up and recuperate.
