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!
“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.
“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
“Sleep is the best meditation.”
~ Dalai Lama
“Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams than the imagination when awake?”
~ Leonardo da Vinci
“The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.”
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
“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
Dawg’s Comment: Wishing my buddy Ralph a safe and comfortable flight. Tonights slideshow is from one of my favourite beach spots Lulworth, I feel it necessary to make comment on the over abundant roadkill on the ways there and back. My people managed to slow down for slow moving birds, rabbits, a wallaby and two wombats, hey, it’s their planet too!
“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.”

“Never have a companion that casts you in the shade.”
