Taking a Break

As some of you know who follow my daily blog Move the Chair, I have decided to take a break for the month of September. At the time, I thought I would continue posting to this blog-but after thinking about it, I have decided that the dogs and I are going to take a break this month as well. We will be back in October–ready to go on new adventures. Thanks to everyone who has stopped in, followed us and provided all kinds of encouragement-we appreciate it and we look forward to seeing you all again very soon!

One piece of exciting news has been that the following photograph which was featured here a few months back was chosen along with another iPhone image to be used in the exhibit “Expanding Vision: The Contribution of Mobile Photography at The Arts Center in Corvallis, Washington.  Last week, we found out that Hubble’s photograph was awarded a Jurors Choice Prize. So this week, small dogs definitely rock in the house!

Out in the Backyard

Watching Hubble in the backyard busy at work on the ongoing construction project known around here as The Hubble Highway–always a work in progress (like some of the road construction projects in this state). I did manage to catch him long enough to try and pose him in an overgrown flower bed, but as you can see, he made his feelings very clear on that matter.

“Joyful, joyful, joyful,
as only dogs know how to be happy
with only the autonomy
of their shameless spirit.”

A Ball, A Bird and a Dog

I was hoping to get some shots of Hubble playing with his ball, but a bird in the fig tree outside distracted him-

A Lucky Look

I was getting ready to upload an earlier photo of Hubble taken today and then I glanced over. He is intently watching a fly waiting . . . waiting . . . waiting for the right moment to pounce.

Today’s Dog Quote:

“Years later, after other experiences with dogs, I wondered if their species were shaped and charmed to serve as four-legged guides able to assist in leading humanity back to our first—and lost—home. By the example of their joy and humility, by wanting nothing more than food and play and love, by the deep satisfaction that they take from those humble things, they belie all creeds of power and fame. Although they have the teeth to tear, it is by swish of tail and yearning eyes that they most easily get what they want.”

Little but Expressive

is this small stump of a Hubble tail. The vet and I are not sure whether the tail was docked on purpose or for fun (!)-whatever the reason, Hubble makes the most of it-unfortunately, it does not perform on command. You can bet when I told him “Free” (the command for okay-you can go be a dog now) that tail was wagging back and forth.

‘Ear! ‘Ear!

I know, I know-it’s pretty bad. Continuing with our “Parts” theme here is Master Hubble modeling his favorite ear pose.

Today’s Dog Quote: 

Percy and Books
Percy does not like it when I read a book.
He puts his face over the top of it, and moans.
He rolls his eyes, sometimes he sneezes.
The sun is up, he says, and the wind is down.
The tide is out, and the neighbor’s dogs are playing.
But Percy, I say, Ideas! The elegance of language!
The insights, the funniness, the beautiful stories
that rise and fall and turn into strength, or courage.
Books? says Percy. I ate one once, and it was enough. Let’s go.”
― Mary Oliver, Red Bird
