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!
“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.”

Wednesday, Lulworth Beach, Tasmania, Dawg’s View. A Paws for Reflection.
Dawg’s Personal Assistant: Tomorrow, being New Years Eve and Frankie not being actively encouraged to join in the pyrotechnic shenanigans I may be posting a more expansive slideshow of Frankie’s exceptional galavantings on the beach/in the surf with appropriate words of wisdom for the New Year. Warmest Affections to you and your family.
“A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.”
~ Tim Cahill
Dawg’s contemplating another journey, back to the beach, maybe the mountains, lakes or bush, wherever there’s many fragrant, scented messages whirling about singing nature’s glory. Patience little puppy maybe in a day or two. The grass frond sprouting up against your front paw reminding me of an emperor’s regal sceptre or perhaps a magician’s wand.

“The root of suffering is attachment.”
“It’s like Deja Vu all over again.”

“I was used to heat but this place was so dry the trees were bribing the dogs.”
~ Irvine Welsh
“For Jane Austen and the readers of Pride and Prejudice, as for Mr. Darcy, [Elizabeth Bennett’s] solitary walks express the independence that literally takes the heroine out of the social sphere of the houses and their inhabitants, into a larger, lonelier world where she is free to think: walking articulates both physical and mental freedom.”
~ Rebecca Solnit
“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing.”
~ Jean Vanier
Dawg’s View (Evandale Markets): Quite pleased with my ability and contribution to community, to bring people to~gether , my head that launched a thousand pats, perhaps a slight exaggeration but I do seem to help people forget their troubles and focus on what’s true and well meaning with life, pat the dog! Little treats gratefully accepted.
