My dogs have decided that the most fun thing in their world is to go fishing. Sister, the red weenie, wouldn't dream of touching her toe outside if there is a raindrop on the ground. Yet, the lure of fishing makes her abandon all of her inhibitions. The girls go crazy; howling and barking; they really flip out.
From the time the lure or worm is cast, they fly into the pond; try to swim out to catch the cork monster. And, they have been hooked too.
Sister is coming back with her fish while Emmy...
guards her catch.
Finally, Sister has a good roll in fish stink.
I love my weenies so. They are like my children. I cannot imagine life without them. My middle daughter once posted a pic of Emmy on facebook and said, "This is my sister. Mom loves her more."
Here is a poem from Edna St.Vincent Millay that I love.
"Parrots, tortoises and redwoods live a longer life than men do;
Men, a longer life than dogs do;
Dogs, a longer life than love does."
