The sky above me is clear, sparkling stars are visible and there is a part of the good old moon. A slight breeze is standing off the bay, makes me shiver. Behind me our Christmas decoration lightens up the porch. I can feel it....it's getting Christmas.
Dixie is back with me and starting towards the door. I let her in, switch off the Christmas lights. It's time to go to bed.
Dixie climbs on her bed, waiting for her Good-Night Cookie.
|On her bed|
Some times I think she is a human in disguise. The way her beautiful eyes look at me, or when she comes to me burying her head in my lap, telling me "it's time for our walk Dad" and she lets out a soft groan. "Dad, I want to walk now". Then we go for a walk along the beach or take a forest trail. She is always off-leash and she stays in sight. And if she ever is too busy to sniff up a scent, and I am way ahead of her, she suddenly realizes the distance and comes running after me.

She was so tiny and so scared of the long journey from Arkansas. But our love made her what she is today - well except when she is outside in the dark, I guess.
Now that the ground is white she is hard to see in the snow, so we tie an orange neckerchief around her neck. Dixie is also very good with other dogs. She always wants to play. Our neighbour's "Ollie". a tiny Yorkshire, has no fear of Dixie, and yesterday Dixie met her friend "Beau" a heavy Retriever, on the beach. Her array of friends is always getting bigger. "Sammy" a black labrador is another great guy to play with.
Have a great weekend!
