Thoughts to Paws over…


Well the day finally has come that I had to say so long to a lovely friend and walking companion!  I got my coat and suited up to go outside and was thrilled to see the sun was making an appearance!  The weather forecast for today predicted an 80% chance for rain with gusting winds up to 35 km/h, talk about feeling like the universe was on our side for a perfect day to stroll!  And that it was, I took Miss Mattie to the park trail, her favourite route, and we took our dear sweet time.  I often have my music playing, poor Mattie has to listen to me croon away.  As we neared her cul de sac my Nano decided to skip the song I was listening to, which it does every now and then, but the song it forwarded to put a lump in my throat.  I was feeling good today, I had my tears a few weeks back, my plan today was to celebrate our friendship, no need to feel blue!  I took my little girl friend inside and one of her people were home, normally she will run off and I am forgotten.  Today I took off her halter and she dashed into the kitchen, but as I went to get up to leave she came running back, sat and stared up at me and allowed me to give her a kiss on her forehead.  She even watched me go, which ruined my composure and started the water works.  As I walked away and the song “God Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts continued in my ears, it started to rain every so lightly, and I am not saying that to sound somber…reminded me of a term I learned in Grade Ten English, a Pathetic Fallacy, when the weather can be used to reflect a person’s mood, with dark clouds or rain present when one is feeling sorrow.  I will miss your friendship Mattie and our lunch time walks!  And even though I didn’t see your housemate one last time,  ‘I bid a fond farewell to you too Pud!”  I am glad to hear you are loving your new house!  I am grateful today for my two little friends who gave me so many happy memories and fun times!  And as the song goes…

“This much I know it’s true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you.”
