Our city is alive right now
with tourists, vendors, and an extensive
canopied tree cover.
With Jim approaching me gingerly
my portable water bowl....
I can pant and feel more refreshed after walking around
our Public Gardens.
You see I'm not allowed inside these Gardens
because of a city by-law
which I do respect.
All that Victorian Garden beauty wouldn't
look like this if I and a zillion other doggies were
permitted entrance...you know what we'd do!
So casing the joint involves
walking the perimeter
which we do a couple of times
just so we can get some exercise
and see some of the city sites!
like this statue of
Sir Walter Scott
I feel so dignified now....!
Across the street from the Public Gardens,
this very cool
(due to the trees and layout)
walkway and park
permits my kind....
so Jim and I sit close to the fountain
waiting for a bit of the spray
to waft over and cool us off...
~~~love this moment~~~
