Gimme, Gimmee, Gimmeee!

Puppy adores presents.  Assumes every gift-wrapped package is for him –

Nope!  

                 

         

 

 

 

 

 

 

Got  caught red-handed on Christmas Eve, snooping  around tree.

“To Pup” … gift tag and tissue flung aside.  Hole in the bag.  He found his present.

“Finally, all mine.” (Had to hide the bag till Christmas morning).

“Don’t remember.  Never graduated !”

 “Oh, hello Santa, it was you all the time!”
img_20170116_184628
So who killed Santa?
img_8329
Didn’t do it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guilty …

Not me!

    Fine, call the cops!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Puppy lives in state of constant joyous expectation.

Fabulous way to live …

Every moment, no matter what comes along

Living life in Puppy Mode …

Sunshine and shadow – embrace it all.

Life’s treasures – darkness, light; good, the bad, lovely and ugly.

Rich fodder for this writer’s pen, if nothing else …

Life often presents real live parables.  Puppy is mine.

I have dreams.

img_20150727_191324
More than one, actually
img_8610
BIG DREAMS
img_20161210_103148
Just did. 

A secret path leads to dreams.  Winds through dusty roads, up dim stairways and rugged steps, along endless corridors.  

Along the way –

  • Jeers, sceptics, wet blankets –
img_20160702_230849
Mean comments
  • Dead ends, slammed doors –
  • Grim warnings –
  • Unforseen restrictions –
  • Disappointments, endless waits –

And yet –

Impelling urges on, blazing inferno that won’t be quenched.  Lurks just beneath surface of immediate consciousness, hangs like  mist, a veil through which real world is viewed.

As fast or as slow as it takes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Still …

Yes! (Tiana’s T-shirt)
img_20160724_105803831
That’s me!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see … 

Fueled by burning urge to write –

Really do

So, no matter how I feel –

Must keep going –

img_8221
You want me to … what?
img_8222
Hey, it’s freezin’ out here!

                   Okay, all done, and good luck with shoveling up that poop when the snow thaws …

Never mind what they say.

One piggy, second pig, third pig …

and …

Ha! 

Nope!  Long before that …

img_20161228_192416
Okay.
img_20160519_082628
A swine state of affairs!

And now –

Don’t know.  

Won’t find out till I try … 

Finally, one sweet day –

img_8136
And it was all worth it after all …

Light at the end of the tunnel 

                                                            Aren’t you glad you made the climb?

Every day is Christmas for Puppy, any moment might bring gifts.

Thankful for Puppy, a parable of joy and daily expectation.

Gimme, gimmee … gimmeee!

Until next time,

sincerely

  2. What a character Puppy is. The title of your next video for puppy should be “Great Expectations.” As usual, funny, extremely entertaining and oh so true. What couldn’t we do if we knew for a certainty that we could not fail?

  3. Puppy should have his own movie! A most photogenic pooch. Enjoyed seeing his showcased in this post. As always, an uplifting and thought provoking read. Keep ’em coming, my Canadian friend!
