FOX ON THE RUN


This morning Ron & I walked the trail
because Daddy Jim has come down with a cold.
The first thing we encountered were these two guys
enjoying their bikes twisting and turning
almost like a dance.


I had just finished remembering 
my Doodle Dance 
in the garden 
while sniffing these white violets and 


white forget-me-nots


and yellow corydalis when


in front of me from out of the fog and mist
appeared this fox.


Off s/he scampered keeping an ever vigilant eye on me.
I'm 9 years old now,
I don't run like mad anymore
unless I want to re-injure my paw.


so I sniffed the dew drenched red clover
letting the fox high tail it out of here.


When I got back home ~


I looked down at my paw that gives me some issues somedays
and wondered if I could have caught up to the fox.
Me thinks I couldn't 
and that's OK with me
I have plenty of sniffing to do in the garden anyway!

    1. I'll keep my eyes DOODLEOPEN to see if FOXYFOX is visible again down there.

      I'm going for a walk again today in the fog and FOXYFOX better be careful.

      I also, hope the clover blossoms will have opened more ~ love the clover indeed!

      Cheers OTTO ~ next time you are in the neighbourhood give us a WOOF!!!

    1. I do believe you hit the nail on the head, MARFA!

      FOXYFOX who me thinks has been around for quite awhile knows exactly what to do and where to go to keep alive!

      DADDY JIM has rounded the proverbial corner and has a HUGE SMILE on his face ~~ such a SAD SACK yesterday ~ I had my work cut out for me!

      I WON!!!

  4. This post reminded me of that old, old song by the Good Brothers called "Fox on the Run." Sorry to hear you've got a bum paw, Sophie. Happens to the best of us as we get older though.

  8. Hi, Ms SD! I'm back home! Groceries bought, laundry done, bills paid; I'm back in business! Gracie and Rufus say "Hello" from their new home by the sea in Hove, England! Your world is beautiful, as always. Daddy Ron is a such master at capturing i! That clover is breathtaking! Sorry that your tootsie is touchy, but the fox was probably glad. Gracie is having some issues with one of her hips and is hobbling around on three legs. It's tough getting older, isn't it, Girlfriend? I hope the Dads are doing well. On my long, long walk, I'm closing in on Halifax and will make sure I pass through Lawrencetown! I love seeing the beautiful blossom background back! Hugs to you all!
