Caught in a pensive mood, Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle is gazing upon the side yard in our Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood.
So I wonder about our beloved rescue mutt as she approaches her fifth year with us … what is she thinking about as she looks out on the world my dear wife Karen and I brought her to when we spotted her at the Paws for a Cause event at Driver’s Village in spring of 2011?
It’s warm inside as the snow lies out there, Ellie B, from the attention you bestow upon us — between your Barkie Demands for breakfast and dinner and release to the backyard, of course. When you saunter up aside my recliner chair, it sounds quite like conversation to me.
This you can tell by instinct, I hope. I always talk back, no matter the language barrier. I’ve told you how I can’t believe somebody dropped the puppy you off on the steps of the Rome Humane Society back then, but I don’t want to belabor the point. I hear you yipping in your nightmares sometimes, and wonder if it’s about those days before we met.
Again, just so you always know. It’s all good on my side.
I hope it is on yours, too.
Do you talk with your pets? Do you imagine you know what they’re saying to you? Do you pets look out the window, and if so, what’s their favorite view?
