Things of Importance

Sometimes it is necessary to be reminded
of the unimportance of these thoughts
and the trivia my mind is hatching.

This can be easily accomplished
by the whining nudge of a cold nose
in urgent need of a good back scratching.

The pitiful one in the middle keeps nudging my hand each time I reach for the mouse.

    That picture is priceless. So full of love and devotion! They love you!! If only all of us could be the recipients of such wonderful and undying and unconditional love. To be so needed and wanted by another living being is the greatest blessing this life has to offer! You are so lucky to have these three dogs in your life, Mark. If only we were all so lucky to have such devoted dogs in our lives as you…

  5. Your fur-faces and mine would like nothing better than for us to live at their level for constant attention. Great write.

  6. I wish my interruptions were dogs. They’d be easier to forgive than children who are old enough to fix their own sandwiches. 😉 Enjoyed this and found it true.

  7. Yes indeed – short yet thought-provoking

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
