Puppies

Some of my favourite puppy pictures from Friday…

All the puppies LOVE their foster siblings – Cava, Puffin and Tinbie

Umm Jack. That isn’t very nice.

Cava was teaching Jack how to jump while Gus just sat and watched.

Following the leader.

Blomkvist couldn’t decide if he really wanted to be part of the action, but he couldn’t stay away.

Jack needs to go to a photographer.  He was such a little poser.

Lou is pretty adorable.

I love the sweet pensive looks Otter gets when she just sits and takes it all in.

The closest as I got to a group shot.  :)

Is there anymore?

Good to the last drop.

Puppy bums are always so cute!

Speaking of puppy bums…

Gus looking up to Puffin wondering if he’ll ever be that tall.

THE ROCK: Chapter 4 Continued

Dented Doors
——–

The two hardest things in life are opening doors and closing them.   And I wasn’t about to let Murphy into ours, me and Malcolm. 
We had reached a rhythm and routine and there was no room for another.  Indeed the very evening Stevie brought him home as a surprise, I was already trying to ship him right back out and one of the first calls I made was to my parents. 
‘You need a dog’, I said and put my best sales pitch together citing that they needed more than just their two Persian kitties to illuminate their golden years.  But they declined and I called friends.  And then friends of friends, but no one wanted Murphy. 
We were stuck with him, the half-crazed, chewing on sheetrock, micturating in every square foot of the house, train wreck of a puppy, Murphy.  I still can’t recall what I did in life to deserve a first and now secondGreat Pyrenees, but I was paying penance for it now.
The price wasn’t that steep but taking into consideration that I was working day and night and often slept on the couch in my office I just didn’t have the strength, time, or even inclination to help heal this poor little abused puppy. 
But as fate would have it, I didn’t have to.  Malcolm healed Murphy.  Mostly anyway.  Within weeks, it was like all of Murphy’s anxieties were gone.  He wasn’t righted completely but he was better and happy and Malcolm had found a mate. 
To play with sure but to torment most probably. 
By the time Murphy had come into our lives, Malcolm had become uninterested in dog toys and yet whenever I’d bring a new one home for Murphy, Malcolm would claim it as his own and unwilling to share for an hour or so just to assert the order of things.  And it would drive Murphy nuts. 
Malcolm’s authority was always absolute.  Hell, he broke me and to the point where I was singing girly songs to him and I’m no push over.  But watching the two of them together, I learned that dogs need to have both human and canine companions and though I didn’t know it then, this is where 2 Dogs really began. 

Not with Malcolm and even with Murphy but their togetherness.  They were inseparable.  
Doors are never fully open or shut.  They are in a constant state of in-between.  It took a long time for me to love Malcolm.  To learn how to care for him as a parent.  And the damnable tragedy is that no manner of love that I had learned, that I had so reluctantly been willing to give Malcolm spared him from what came next.

YBD’s Notes 1:  The photo is of Murphy when he first came into our life.  

YBD’s Notes 2: To my former Muse.  Though I came up with it a long time ago, I never knew how to use it until now.  Thank you.  

YBD’s Notes 3:  Malcolm and Murphy’s companionship reminded me of a song from an much underappreciated movie, Hudson Hawk sung by Bruce Willis and Danny Aiello.

Out checking on a Geelong Sunday Market today and Vicki noticed an interesting offering from a pet stall. For only you could take home a pair of, (sic), muscles. Closer inspection revealed that said pets were in fact very similar in size, shape and features to the shellfish attached to the rope on our mooring bouy across the road. Indeed we felt a little guilty seeing as how we had actually eaten a kilo of their cousins just the day before. Not sure if it’s a marketing opportunity we’re missing out on here or maybe it’s the spelling lesson I was itching to give :) .

The Westie and the Bichon

This is a similar photo to the one I put on Monte Carlo Daily Photo today.  This adorable Westie and Bichon are on the terrace of a bar/restaurant in the beautiful medieval village of Eze, which is along the coast between Monaco and Nice. I don’t know the names of the dogs as I didn’t chat to the owners on this occasion.
