I was looking at the new picture I have of Tink and
Poo. It is said a picture tells a thousand words. You
know I am kind of proud of those two. They are special
in my heart. After all not ever dog is a great writer
of stories, and here I have two. Well lets be honest
about it. No one believes that they write the stories.
But they give me the ideas for the stories. I do watch
them. I draw the stories from the actions of these
Now any one that ever had a dog or dogs. If they are
real dog lovers will tell you they see a grin, a
laugh, or at times a sad look on a dogs face. And some
looks in between. Some times a look of deep thought
I look at this picture. I see an all most laugh out of
Tinker. He is all most saying hey look here, buy my
book. Poo is a more well yes buy my book, I would be
happy if you did, but lets face it you may not, so I
give you my some what happy face. Maybe I should call
it my oh hum face. The art work the lady did, makes it
look like Tink may be getting ready to sign your copy
of the book.
Yes I believe a dog face changes with what ever is
going on in the dogs world. They know sickness, they
know pain. They know joy, they also know when things
is good, and bad. The face shows it just like your
face shows it. They know when they meet some one, if
that person is a dog lover, they know a dog hater too.
They can tell right off if that person can be trusted.
The face will show it. Also the tail tells the story.
I look at this picture and I think I see a lot of
things in the face of these two. Others may not. That
is their problem. I see two that has gave me more joy
then you will ever know. I have heard the bark of
"hey, time for us to go out." The bark of "hey get us
in, it is hot or cold out here." Depends on the
weather you know. "Hey we are happy to see you." ..
"Hey we going some where.".. "Hey how come we not
going with you." I think I hear a different "hey" each
time. All depends on what is going on. And don't foget
the "Hay isn't it about time to eat".. And Yes .. "Hey
we got food."
Now I have had, and heard people say what good is a
dog. Also certain kinds of dogs. Well dogs has been
known to do lots of things for people. Depends on the
dog I guess. Some dogs work. Take a sheep dog, they
can work. How about a guard dog, yes they work. How
about a dog that cares for a blind person, you bet. OK
you say my mutts is what is called a lap dog,
worthless. Don't you dare tell me that. These may be
small, don't let the size fool you. I know when a
strange car or person comes on the place. I don't need
a door bell. I can forget to lock the doors at night.
The next morning I find that out. Well I had Tink and
Poo here. I would have known if someone opened the
door, long before the door opened. So guess I would
have had time to get the canon out. And I think they
would have held the intruder long enough. Maybe he or
she would find out about the fact, the small guys come
with teeth also. So don't tell me they are worthless.
They are worth a lot to me. I get a grin out of them.
And more love then those that never had a dog will
ever know. Yep I believe this picture may well tell a
thousand words, and maybe more.
