“You just don’t have time for this dog…”

Happy Dog Tails

You said you did but now you know that you just don't have time for this dog. That cute 8 week old yellow lab puppy is now two years old, overly friendly with people, plays well other dogs and craves exercise. You've just accepted a teaching job on the other side of the city and your wife, who also works fulltime, is seven months pregnant.

Where I can play with the Lake Dogs on an endless afternoon; sink my soul into the Adirondack quiet of an early morning when the mists hover over the water or bear witness to the last hours of light near the darkness forming in the distance across the lake at the end of the day. There is no better bliss than this place except my own home in the … [Read more...]
