Happiness for me is surrounding myself around critters. Welcome to another Saturday posting of critters within my world. I'm also posting to City Daily Photo.
I begin today with this quote from Nakeia Homer it's what I've learned through the years, and especially from my pets.
"Remember the last time
you thought you couldn't do it,
but then you did?
Do that again." Nakeia Home
Welcome to the pups in my world and sorry kitties you aren't in this line-up today.
Meet Bugsy my oldest son's pup.
Royal pup in my eyes Artemis (a girl) named by my daughter from Artemis, The Greek Goddess of the hunt, the wilderness, wild animals, the Moon and Chastity.
My daughter and her pup Artemis!
My beloved pups, Dash (also named by my daughter as Dashiell Hammett one of her favorite writers) above and below with Misty.
"You got to look on the bright side, even if there ain't one." Dashiell Hammett
Also my oldest son's pup, sweet little Emme who graciously allows her brother Bugsy to take center stage until she doesn't! hehehe.
"The love of a dog is a pure thing. He/she gives you a trust that is total. You must not betray it."
"Like literature, music can overwhelm you with sudden emotion, can move you to absolute sorrow or ecstasy; like literature, painting has the power to astonish, and to make you see the world through fresh eyes.
Come close and let me tell you an ancient story.
But only literature can put you in touch with another human spirit, as a whole, with all its weaknesses and grandeurs, its limitations, its pettinesses, its obsessions, its beliefs; with whatever it finds moving, interesting, exciting, or repugnant."
This quote, pretty much explains what the critters in our lives master as well.
Update on our peacock that so far as yet still remains with us.
"If you stare at someone long enough, they'll eventually look back at you."
I hear your approach!
"If you don't like where you are, move. You are not a tree."
Random hikers with their pups. All lost in thought.
"You can't discuss the ocean with a well frog, he's limited by the space he lives in. You can't discuss ice with a summer insect, he's bound to a single season."
Some faces are hard to resist.
"The real world is much smaller than the imaginary."
"Search for the seed of good in every adversity. Master that principle and you will own a precious shield that will guard you well through all the darkest valleys you must traverse. Stars may be seen from the bottom of a deep well, when they cannot be discerned from the mountaintop."
