when walking on a path in the park today
i noticed 5 different dogs, with 4 different owners
coming from all directions
lots of jumping and friendly barking
wondering how they would all get along
it was a planned play date
a dog party
so thrilled to see each other
immediately falling into joyful play
just like in one of my very favorite books
go, dog, go!
with the surprise dog party at the end.
(sorry for the too late spoiler alert)

this tiny dog
has lived a full life
gifted to me by my dear friend
her husband’s mother/grandmother
i would love to know its story
it has seen the world and is beautifully imperfect.

all i see is a heart
and i know
that i have crossed paths
with a sweet and amazing
“to fashion stars out of dog dung,
that is the great work.
to take a negative experience and,
by comparing it to something worse,
make it feel good, is a great skill. “

An adorable Shiba Inu named Ken-kun in Hokkaido, Japan remarkably runs his own sweet potato stand.
The watchful dog politely tends to whatever the customer needs, however, he is not able to accept payment. That situation is solved with a slot in which to put the money.
Customers need to have the exact amount (or be willing to leave the rest), as a sign on the front of the stand reads:
“Because I am a dog, I can’t give you change.”
“the dog lives for the day, the hour, even the moment.”

the vet said about one,
“she’s just not very athletic.”
“current position: tired from the human race.”
