A Girl's Best Friend.........

Almost ninety percent of women find at least one quality in their dog that they would like to see in their human partner, according to a recent survey by the American Kennel Club. As one journalist for the New York Times commented there is a yearning for “playful galumphs that seemed to love life with a passion not often seen in this world.”

Which brought to mind a conversation I had with Aase, a very independently minded Norwegian woman in the depths of the Gudbrandsdahl a few years ago. She had chosen to have a child, a lovely little girl, but not stay attached to the father.

“I’m feeling lonely,” she said. “Maybe I’ll get myself a man.”

She had quite an eye for the British commandos who came to this part of Norway to train every now and again.

Aase paused pensively, then added with true down to earth Scandinavian pragmatism…….

“Or maybe not. I think I’ll get myself a dog.”

So maybe it’s not diamonds, toys or even we boys who are a girl’s best friend …….

And I wonder if gently whispering “Woof! Woof!” in my lover’s ear ……..

Kat, me too, but I do like dogs and their unceasing enthusiasm for even the goofiest of things. Will certainly get a dog when I eventually retire.


Dog: Yeah! Lemme at it! Yee Hah! (wagging tail twenty to the dozen)

Cat: Whatever.... (looks contemptuously at dog and goes back to sleep)

Gotta love all the good lord's critters....

And with a name like foxy your spirit guide must be a canine, my sweet.

The aroma of coffee in the air and a friend at your feet who has undying loyalty to you. Life is good.

And the only therapy I can offer, my dear Tabs, is to whisper "Woof! Woof!" in your ear!
