Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. Henry David Thoreau

Name this dog.

At first, I thought this was a coyote.
But it didn't act like a coyote.

This little doggie wanted to be where we were.
She looked all around and decided to stay 
close by.

I kept shooing her away
but she kept coming back around
She was hungry.
Dad gave her the last bite of his sandwich.
She is probably the ugliest dog I have ever seen.

When I came back later to check on Dad
she was right there with him.
We walked around admiring the day's work
and sat a while, 
just listening to the sounds
and talking about the next step.

Doggie sat right by our chairs, 
fetched a stick when we threw it out for her.
Begged for peanuts
and sat right at our feet while we talked.
She is still hungry
but we didn't have anything we could feed her.

I hope she is still there in the morning.
She seems like a smart dog
and she is gentle.
And quiet.
But oh boy is she ugly!!!

I will take more pictures tomorrow
but you know how my luck goes
with stray animals.
The Christmas cat.
The blue-eyed Husky.
And now the Memorial Day doggie.

Im not getting my hopes up.


  1. that really is a strange looking dog. she almost looks like a pit bull, in the face. minus the ears, of course...and the longer tail. well, at least it's good to know that your stray pets know where to find you when you move.

  2. the blue eyed husky? why do i not know this story?


"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
