Saturday mornings at the Farmer’s Market, if one arrives just as all the vendors are setting up their booths, can be very quite.
About 30 minutes after the die hard– “fresh produce only’s”– guys make their way around all the booths– there seems to be a revival of voices, laughter and dogs on parade. This is the high-light of my day!
I adore dogs– sorry to Sammie the wonder cat (who wrote his own blog– check it out here) maybe it’s because I can’t have a pup right now but it seems to me that I am craving to be near them.
Frankie had just spied a wayward hot dog recently out of the mitts of a baby – he would not make eye contact with me.
Oliver, on the other hand, not only cocked his head to me but I swear he whispered to me to borrow him permanently. Isn’t his smile adorable?
Ranger, I promise, stopped in his tracks for me to snap this handsome shot of him.
But still Buddy the Basset is still one of my favorites!
When putting this post together I couldn’t help keep myself amused thinking of all the cute Dog songs out there. Here’s a couple:
Gonna Buy Me a Dogby The Monkees
Who Let the Dogs Outby Baha Men
How Much is that Doggie in the Window by Patti Page
Me and You and a Dog Named Booby Lobo
Hound Dog by Elvis
And Oh yes– a tribute to Utah–
OK, so this one’s not really about a dog, but it’s a cool song, nonetheless: Puppy Love by Donny Osmond
Can you think of any other Dog songs I am missing? Join me and the other outdoors lovers with Susan at Southern Day Dreamer.
Here’s to my wonderful new friends! TTFN~~Claudia ♥
This is the garden’s magic,
That through the sunny hours
The gardener who tends it, Himself outgrows his flowers.
He grows by gift of patience,
Since he who sows must know
That only in the Lord’s good time
Does any seedling grow.
He learns from buds unfolding,
From each tight leaf unfurled,
That his own heart, expanding,
Is one with all the world.
He bares his head to sunshine,
His bending back a sign
Of grace, and ev’ry shower becomes
His sacramental wine.
And when at last his labors
Bring forth the very stuff
And substance of all beauty
This is reward enough.
