Blue Thoughts on a Sunny Day

Today, on this lovely day in May, I learned that a neighborhood dog died this morning, and it’s made me more than a little teary eyed. How I will miss this dog’s presence, so elegant and dignified that I came up with a theme song—Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition”—whenever the dog passed our house.

Our dog buddies don’t live long enough, but what bright presences they are in our lives as long as they are with us.

This is for you, beautiful dog. And may you have promenade after promenade in dog heaven.
