Little Brown Dog

Boykin Spaniels at work, play and rest.

Daddy

A walk in the woods the

Anniversary of my father’s death

Ferns,

Moss,

Woodpecker holes,

A field of flowers bounded by an open canopy of the sun

Beer can, crumpled.

Three ducks swim past,

A Bridge lamp, 

Souvenirs all.

Hi this is Dixie the #Boykin in a serious “stay” at puppy college. Miss Heidi loves to torment me; Peeps puts me in a sit/stay, then Miss Heidi torments me with a bouncing, squeaking tennis ball, a stupid pink stuffed sting-ray and her beloved 4 month old collie, whose stupid ears are taped down because he’s going to be shown, or something like that, and the judges require a minimum 1/4” ear fold-down. Don’t get me started. Despite the torture, I got a “very we’ll done” thanks to Peeps, who really gets into this dog school gig.  Oh, the big German Shorthair (pictured right), my boyfriend Dutch. I mess with his mind during the whole class. I own him.  (at PetSmart)
