Waiting for Jim


This morning bright and early


Ron took me to Point Pleasant Park,


just the two of us.


I sniffed pretty much everything in sight,


but one thing sort of bothered me....


where was Jim because he is missing all this beauty?


I calmly sauntered and searched all our favourite haunts


with no luck not even a 'JimScent" was on the air.


He had to be somewhere because he was in the car when we left home.


These ladies with the cute white dogs didn't seem to know where he was either.




I guess if I sit here and look down the road maybe he'll appear....
I know I smell something in the air now...
I have a real good sniffer you know...
and I was right 
here he comes!

  2. What gorgeous foliage. I hope your autumn lasts a long while. We're supposed to get snow here in Edmonton this weekend. The kind that doesn't go away for 6 months.

    1. Poor Edmonton...always gets the white stuff...my Dads have a sister and a brother(each) living there, so have heard over the years how snow likes the big city!

  3. What a beautiful morning Sophie! I'm glad Jim finally showed up. It's not the same without him, right? When we take Gracie on her nightly walk sometimes Gary will have to leave and go back home because of his 'Crohn's bathroom urgency' and Gracie will keep stopping to look back... missing him and probably wondering why he's not with us. When the threesome is split up.. it's just not the same, right?

  7. Nothin' gets passed your nose, Soph! That was another great walk. We're glad you didn't lose Daddy Jim.

    We wouldn't have had a calm walk. We would have been all over the place.

    1. Scampering here and there...I can see you now...what I realized was that if it's me and 1 other human...I'm calm...add another 'anything' then I get wonky donky!

    1. Hi HO friend....I do appreciate my fortune, my life with my guys and I hope you get a sense of my love for life. Doodles are everywhere nowadays and I think it's because they are so lovable, loyal and FULL OF ENERGY...except today though...once in awhile a girl has to saunter!!

  12. Can you feel the love?!? So, it's a calm walk when Jim's not there. He's just too hyper, I guess.

    The fall colors are unbelievable!

    1. I thought about that 'fact' Mitch...but Jim is so calm all the time, unless immersed in conversation. So i think it's the 1 on 1 with Sophie that she enjoyed...I guess more of these walks might prove to be beneficial training wise!

    1. It was so strange, yet relaxing for the both of us....we started our sojourn...Sophie began sniffing and before we knew it the trek was completed and we were content....with now craziness. Does this mean Sophie is getting older or finally 'growing up'!

  16. That is the prettiest park all year, but that Fall foliage is a treat!
    Good girl, Sophie, waiting so calmly.
