This pic.

Oh my.

What wonderful memories this brings back and so cheeky.

The above photo was taken years ago and better days for our little shih tzu.  What a wonderful memory. We traveled a lot over the years and what a trooper our little dog was. She was always ready to hit the highway. She is and always has been a complete doll.

In this photograph she has her lip curled and I could sense what was going on. As the picture was being taken, I decided to join in and mimic the bundle of cuteness going on in the back. It was funny then and we get a kick out of it every time we have a look.

Buttons is 17 years (119 in dog years). Every day now we count as a blessing and one more day we have with our tiny friend. She was much younger, as was I, in this picture. A family friend and companion, with us where ever we have gone.

It is so much fun to look through pictures and to find ones like this that bring back wonderful memories of joy.

Proxy

PROXY

Dangling, waiting
feeling stuck.
Moving slow
living in muck.

Unable,
no reaching you.
Connection
lost.

Islands,
middle of nowhere
isolated
alone.

Wind whispers.
Leaves sway.
Rain dances.
Sun into day.

Blades of grass,
sky of blue,
together,
a proxy to you.

Darkest despair
there is light.
Abridge the wrongs,
lengthening right.

Be my proxy,
to all, without touch.
Rest with me
there is no rush.

Ease the torment
to flesh no pain,
remind me of all
the good again.

Be
my proxy
to the world,
outside.

Bring
together,
far and wide
beauty.

The world.
Nature.
One
proxy.
