Zoe’s Doppelganger

Kirk and I saw this incredibly well-behaved dog in a restaurant. She sat upright on this chair for an hour and never moved or begged for food. As far as I could see she never blinked. But, she looked exactly like Zoe would look if she were twice her present size. What do you think? When I remarked on her behavior, her human said that she had not been feeling well. She is a rescue and one of 12 dogs he and his partner have. And 54 cats!  I now feel less a martyr to my 3 dogs and two cats. The second shot is of Zoe a couple of weeks ago. The first and third  are of her doppelganger. Zoe would have been in the middle of my plate in seconds.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Tami sits on the floor beside me when I eat and the only thing that moves is to follow my fork from my plate to my mouth, then when she knows I am finished she runs to the spot where I might give her leftovers. This morning I was nailing with brads and put the brads in my mouth, she followed every one of those nails, she talks with her eyes. I have a good friend who has a young puppy and she has not been able to teach it anything.. She sounds disappointed, I have made it clear that if she gives up I want that puppy~!

        So funny! We’ll sort of… Puppy Girl did that when we left her for a few hours last week. Usually she holds it for 10 hours. She must have saved it up while we were on our walk. Our neighbor came in to check on her and voila, a little treat!
