Morning Nap in the Winter Sun

November 26, 2012 | My Jottings

Now that the sun is so much lower in the sky, we have light streaming in our windows at the front of our house from 7:00 a.m. until about 4:30 p.m. each day. A person with Seasonal Affective Disorder would find much relief in this place.

Mildred and Edith love it. They believe that our new king-sized bed was purchased just for them, and they take advantage of it at least three times per day. This picture below was taken a couple of days ago when the sun was bright and warming the blankets on the bed. Millie and Edith were just seconds away from their twitchy doggy naps, when their ears, paws and back legs jerk and tremble in their rabbit-chasing dreams.

“I think God will have prepared everything for our perfect happiness. If it takes my dog being there [in Heaven], I believe he/she’ll be there.”

Reverend Billy Graham

    You sure your guys aren’t cats? 😀 They are sure acting catty. And sooo cute….

    That is so true of Mildred – she is so catty in so many ways! I’m going to tell my family about your assessment and they’ll all chuckle, Ganeida! xxoo

    Hmm …. A bit more than just an ear on show today! 🙂

  4. Just Julie says:

    Yes Kay! But I think a nice poem would be nice…any rhymes roiling around in your head? xxoo

    Well, Julie, here’s a bit of a poor offering, but it’s the best I could do at short notice!

    Julie thought the girls were just taking a rest
    Soaking up the sun’s sweet golden rays
    But in fact they were devising a crafty plan
    To get rid of ‘the scourge’ of their days.

    Now a dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do
    So if they managed to acquire a few dollars
    They thought they could visit a local locksmith
    To get rid of those evil bark-collars.

    Edith and Millie had it all planned
    But this resolution was too hard to keep
    After using up their energy to work out this plan
    They were exhausted and dropped off to sleep.

    You are absolutely amazing Kay! Do you have a blog? No. Are you the Poet Laureate of Cornwall? No. My next question is….why not? So clever and you made me smile again. Thank you for writing about our dogs. Wait until I read this to Michael! xxoo
