Today  is  Day 21 of Loveuary and  I  am  going  to  use the  prompt  the love of pets.Firstly a poem written about Ruby before she came to live with us. Secondly a haiku about our love for our dog.

 Ruby the working girl!

Ruby is a working girl on duty night and day

She works so very hard she rarely has time to play.

We were not busy today, my friend and I,

So we dropped in on her as we were passing by.

Ruby was so pleased to see us she could hardly contain herself

She was dashing here and dashing there and knocking things from off the shelf.

It was lovely to escape the three of us to green fields and the sun

We wondered round and round chatting laughing, just having fun.

Then my foot began to itch so I slipped my shoe off on to the grass green

Unfortunately for me there was dog muck there lucking unseen.

That was really nasty an unwelcome surprise People who do not clean up after their dogs really make my temper rise.

So there we were scrabbling in field.

My foot dirty and smelly well that was not in the deal.

But Ruby she was happy she ran and sniffed and played

This was her only time she not have  to behave!!

My shoe and and foot duely wiped we just had to laugh

For Ruby was such a joy to see and went I got home I could have a bath.

So finally we walked Ruby back to work,

She was so happy to greet  her mistress we could see  Ruby was no shirk.

As we walked home we marvelled at her skills

How she worked and her mistress from all ills.

We laughed about my smelly feet and what we would like to do to those who do not clean up after their dogs We decided that they all should be fed to hungry hogs!!!!

Ruby and her fellow working dogs are silent heroes,

Often not thought of and definitely unsung

But my friend and I think they are the best and Ruby is our favourite one!

  RUBY OUR GIRL

Ruby we love you

You brighten our lives it’s true

We’re grateful to you


A very different Post!

Please read this post, it speaks for itself. ❤

A Dog's Life? (Stories of me and him)

This is a very different Post from my usual literary meanderings, as it focuses on my daughter Melanie.

She was diagnosed with a brain tumor 10 years ago and, as it was not possible to surgically remove all of it, she has had considerable chemo and radiation treatments.  Sadly, while those treatments have no doubt kept her alive, there are numerous long term side effects which dictate that she cannot perform regular work functions, and is therefore dependent on benefits from her disability provider.

When she is up to it, she uses her time volunteering for a non-profit program that coaches people who are fighting poverty.

Melanie has always been a fighter but, being unable to earn an income, she is struggling to cover her basic living costs.  When I was in N. Vancouver last October, he spirits were quite high, but she was obviously concerned about paying her monthly…

Today is Day 15 of Loveuary. Now to choose a prompt ? Marriage, I have added a D as poetic license because I want to do an Acrostic Nonet and that demands 9 lines and so needs  nine letters.

Marriage with a D

Image found here

More than a wedding day is marriage

And vows need plenty of hard work

Rekindling love every day

Remembering to care

Igniting passion

Aging as one

Growing close

Every

Day
