Down on the beach again

maggie in water
Jumping in and out of the waves,
Chase me, catch me, splash me with cold,
Then wash my paws in water so clear
To rid my fur of sand and salt.

Pouncing, laughing, find something to throw,
I don’t care, I want to run,
I’ll fetch it, bring it, throw it again,
This knotted rag is such fun!

Rushing, catching, tossing around,
Soft on my mouth and old teeth,
Chewing, gnawing, making it damp,
As I hold it between my feet.

Tired, panting, needing rest,
I walk slowly by your side,
A drink, some food, a quiet corner,
Warmth, a peaceful place to hide

Out of the way of careless folk,
Lying beneath this old chair,
Dozing, slipping into the Land of Nodd,
You’d never know I was there.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. A good day for dogs (Here and there). Sweet dreams for all!

    • She’s exhausted bless her, and curled up on the bed last night and didn’t move.After her morning walk, she flaked out on her blanket on the bench, so our plans are for a very quiet day today.
