Windy Walk

Just a moment I wanted to share. Everyday when I come home from work, the first thing I do is take little Sting'em for a short walk down the street. We walk in front of a big tree just down the way from us. There are usually many leaves laying on the ground and on the road that have fallen from this tree. Sting'em usually likes to pick a leaf or two up and carry his new found possession back to our door. Yesterday, when I came home from church, it was very windy. Well, poor Sting'em didn't know what to do with himself , as there were many, many leaves blowing around him in the wind. He was chasing them frantically down the street, trying the catch them. He would capture one and drop it to chase another. I found myself laughing out loud. It was a pretty funny sight. I am glad that we have Sting'em, the little joy that he is.

So sweet! I can just see him chasing those leaves. He's a funny little man.

You need to have a kid. If a little dog can bring you that much joy and excitement, you need to step it up a notch.

By the way... that tree reminds me of the tree in Shawshank Redemption where the dude buries the little box with the new identity for Morgan Freeman.

He's just like a little kid! It was reminding me of watching these little dogs in the snow and they were all hoping around like the didn't know what was going on but they loved it!
