They are two of the sweetest little doggies you ever saw: Mr. J. on the left and and Mr. D on the right, below. They’re my daughter’s pets and are a joy to be around.
They’re also the best of friends, who do almost everything together. Every so often, they’ll sit at that window for long minutes, staring out at the snow – or so I think. Whatever they’re looking at, they seem very intent.
When I go to the same window and look out, I don’t see anything moving. Not squirrels or rabbits or birds or any other creatures. Just trees and shrubs and snow. Lots of snow.
Unless, of course, dogs have telescopic vision and are seeing something that I can’t.
So what are our two little doggies staring at so intently?
And what are they thinking? I know that dogs dream. But do they daydream as well?
And do they have silent conversations?
Mr. J: “Don’t you wish we could go back outside and play in that snow”?
Mr. D: “Not really- will this winter NEVER end?”
Mr. J: “Isn’t it fun messing with the humans’ minds? Let’s just sit here and keep doing this.”
It’s one of life’s mysteries…..
Here’s to the pets who bring joy to our lives — sometimes when we least expect it.
