|Beckett Blue February 26th, 2015|
So, after feeding, medicating and washing Beckett, I went out to tend Winston our Wondrous Wabbit in the garden. Beckett and Odie followed. Well, Beckett watched from his new founded perch, the porch, with swooping bluejays and a very formidable red squirrel to keep him company.
I was just about to open Winston’s hutch when down the road, I heard the rumblings of the H & L fuel truck… O no!!! Ever so quickly I grabbed onto Odie fearing that the truck would enter our driveway and might not see a greeting Odie. However, all my fears were allayed as I saw him parked on the road… so very thoughtful. Then, I scrambled over to Beckett, and…
Just as the H & L fuel man entered our driveway on foot, Beckett, who needed no red cape to leap off our four foot high porch, galloped through two feet of hardened snow to make sure that the possible intruder stayed at a safe distance. Luckily, the fuel man had a great love for dogs, and some very tasty dog biscuits.
I just stood there with my mouth gaping, replaying Beckett’s stumbling, yet somehow, still powerful and graceful gallop! What an amazing and beautiful will Beckett has even at this stage of his life. It made me think of this quote from Thomas Merton, “Life is this simple: we are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and the divine is shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story or a fable, it is true. ” Yes, little miracles are happening all around us…making our journey and our hearts so very full.
And on that note, I want to leave you with another wondrous thing that I have discovered, Doggie diapers. They are amazing!!
