FOWC with Fandango — Bound

In movies, we see captives bound to chairs or beds. I don’t like the idea of having my movements restricted.
However, there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing the dog bound towards me when she’s called.
The ‘deaf’ thing is still a concern, but in quieter surroundings, her response is good.
Of course, things are bound to change. Old age settles in, for some of us quicker than others, but time goes on, not back.
Are we bound by it? Time that is. Always somewhere to go, somewhere to be, someone to see. The secret is not to let it rule us (if we can).
Books are bound, although paperbacks rely on glue and compression to hold the pages together. I so hate it when someone doubles a book back on itself.
We get ourselves in a bind with commitments, bound by a promise.
Rules, regulations, routine and respect. If there is any possibility that I cannot fulfil a promise, I won’t make it.

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.
