Walking with Angels

My highlight for the day was taking Fiona and Zappa for a walk.  I was having a rough day and it was time to just get out of the house and walk.


First I took Fiona and her guard instantly came down.  Her tough girl attitude suddenly became quiet and loving.  Her body trembles with happiness.  She was perky and lighthearted like a giddy school girl who can't believe she was chosen for this special time together.  Her gratitude shows by nose bumping my hand or thigh for thanks.

Next I took Zappa.  Zappa was being more comical than usual.  He usually gets in his serious stance as if he knows there's business to take care of.  Like in my story Who is Zappa?  Instead he was quite bouncy and silly.  His guard was also down.   His whole body wiggle with happiness as he pounced from one spot to the next.  He was letting his playful side out, a side he rarely shows.  He was such joy to walk with.  He too was grateful for this special time together. 

The treat was equal for all of us.  They were grateful for this time and so was I.  There was nothing I needed more than to spend that quality time with them.  Their happiness was contagious and their loving sweetness melted all my problems away.  What could be better than walking with angels?

Just like with the humans. Every kid loves that special one-on-one time with Mom. It's the same with us pups - we love those times when we get to go for a walk alone with the Momster too.

There's nothing like the love of our companions to lift our spirits.

Sweet photos! And how true, sometimes just the simplest of actions - going for a walk with our furpals is just wonderful. I love taking mine out individually. It's such bonding, quiet-time. Very special for both canine and human alike. Very nice post!

Glad it was a healing of sorts. I always seem to make Dad smile, no matter what his day held.

I've often felt the same way! I feel sorry for people who don't have that pleasure to come home to.

Our Dad has never takin us seperate, We think he should try that and see how we react.

Thanks for the thought.

Oh how I love dogs and their unconditional love for us. I adore Angels and so dogs and angels go together. Wonderful thought, especially when you're needing a little boost. Hugs to you and the dogs. Mart

Nothing, absolutely nothing. No matter how cold or rainy it is, I can never wait to go home and walk my dog.

I couldn't agree more with your attitude! Nothing is better than walking with dogs (except maybe mountain biking with them :)

I'm glad that they helped make your day better and vice-versa!
