A bark.


A quiet day. Old dog heaven. Wilf was happy to laze around the house or sit in the sun dappled courtyard guarding. Excitement was provided by the arrival of the post lady, who received a bark, and by a walk across the village green to say hello to the mayor. A leisurely one hundred yards in five minutes. In Wilfs view " there are no shortcuts to any place worth going ". How true.

  4. I keep forgetting that Wilf isn't a puppy. Wilf sits in the yard - Jack wants to sit in front of the garage door!

  11. Yes, Wilf has got it right, it's all about the journey not the destination.

    Good to hear the post lady warranted a bark.

    Have a great weekend. It's wet and very windy here in South East UK, hope you keep your dappled sunshine.

  12. One of the best lessons I've learned from Petey who, as a male dog, must stop and sniff and properly christen every vertical item in his path, is that it is okay to slow down and savor the journey, rather than just rush to the destination.

  13. As always, Wilf shows wisdom beyond his years. Enjoy your day little philosopher!

  14. Once again, Wilf has it absolutely correct. It is not the destination that counts, but the journey.

  15. Wilf teaches us important lessons every day. I love the thought of him lying in the sun. (in fact, I'd love to lie in the sun right now!).

  19. Life's a journey, not a destination. So no need to hurry along.
