Beetle black eyes

sparkling intelligence

in that black satin face

long pink tongue

hangs between canine teeth

ferociously happy.



Shaved the puppy today.  His face is nekkid but he’s extra cute!  We’ve been training today.  He learned 3 new tricks!  He puts the toy into a lacrosse stick for me to throw it (very handy on mucky days), he’ll lie over my feet, and he stands on his back feet.  This in addition to come, sit, down, back, catch, go pee.  Very talented puppy. 😉

On the outside, I am smiling

and laughing.

On the inside, I am squealing

oh my god!

oh my god!

oh my god!

oh my god!

while leaping about the room

doing back flips.

On the outside

I just seem happy.

On the inside

I’ve gone super nova.




(sometimes I wish I was 2 again, so I could act out these moments of euphoria)
