One on One

Maggie may be pushing her mid eighties in doggie years, but she still likes the one on one fuss and play.
The other morning whilst walking her in the park, she chased the sea gulls, something she loved to do down at Hamworthy when she was a pup.
Even here on the marina, I’ve known her to lift a pheasant, though she and the rabbits have reached an agreement and practically nod in passing.
It’s great to see her run, to know she still has her speed, albeit in shorter spurts now.
She will still rush to greet us if we have separated on the dog walk temporarily, or strain on the leash in greeting, tail a-wagging, if one of us has been in a shop and she’s had to wait outside with other. If we could only harness the power in that tail wag sometimes.

Watching her with Hubby last night, I reached for the camera and took a series of shots.
Nothing spectacular, just a guy and a dog, but it warmed my heart.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    There is probably nothing in the world like the love for a dog and to be loved by a dog.
