I see beauty when I walk with my dog

Today Penny and I walked in a potentially boring place, a sports ground, because high winds were forecast and I didn't want to be under trees that might drop branches on us.

But it wasn't boring. It's never boring walking with Penny, because she explores every nook and cranny and makes me more observant. (Watching out for snakes, if nothing else, keeps me on the alert.)

Today she wandered down to a little sandy patch of water that hardly earns the name of creek. It wasn't much, but as she paddled in it I saw how peaceful and inviting the spot was.

I'm glad I have a dog to open my eyes to the beauty around me.

Its really crazy when I stop and think about the things that my dogs have opened my eyes to. Everything from peace and joy to sadness and loss. I am a better person because of them.

Hound Girl, you are so right - the joy and sadness of life with dogs enrich our life.

Mitch and Molly, and Lassie and Benjie, I'm glad you liked this lovely spot that Penny showed to me.
