Milo and I took our evening walk to the school house and lowered the American flag. I folded the flag and put it away. I sure wish he would learn to hold one end for me. The air was calm and it was snowing. I took his leash off so he could run freely for a while. With him off and away I noticed that it was quiet, really quiet. The clouds, fog and snow muffled any sounds. The only thing I could hear was the snow crunching under my feet. It's been a day of reflection. I was thinking of my other dogs. Sandy, Skipper, Bruce and Malcom. I stayed out all night looking for Skipper when he left. They are all gone now. I suspect they are playing with each other in Mom and Dad's back yard. Mom is reading a book and Dad is reading a newspaper. Days like today I feel them looking down on me, protecting me, giving me strength. It's a good day to remember the ones that gave me unconditional love. It's time now to give love to Milo.

Hi David, I notice when I'm out and about walking in the silence, my thoughts tend to drift and become reflective. I still think of Missie, our dog when I was growing up, and then Grizzly had a sibling/litter mate, Princess. She had uncontrollable seizures and was put to sleep when she was 2. My boy is going to be 12 and not getting around too well :( Hope you ate some spaghetti and drank some wine for me.

Oops, give Milo a biscuit from Griz. Love his picture on your side bar :)

Ah there you are dear friend, I've missed you. Our animals fill a place in our hearts that can never be replaced. Pickles is woofing a gentle Hi! to Milo. Give him a scritch behind his ears for me. (Hugs)Indigo

March 1st huh.....wish I could come! I have a dog, a sweet Golden Retriever named Bandon. She is my buddy, attached to my hip and I can't imagine life without her. The first dog, to be honest, I've ever felt so attached to.
I hope you're having a beautiful week.

Sounds like you had a peaceful day. Hope you have a very nice weekend, and enjoy your spaghetti supper!

Wish I had been there! Spaghetti is one of my most favorite things to eat! We got snow here on March 1st. We NEVER get snow so I am glad I had saved my snow boots and thick coat from my Colorado days. Even though I rarely need them here, it was nice to have them when I did need them!
