The Diamond Creek Dogs

Social Distancing . . .
Diamond Creek Doggie Style

Where there’s a shortage of PPE
( Puppy Play Equipment 🐢 )

The Proud Dad … Prince Harry
A successful interracial marriage

So we adopted Oki πŸ–€

who loves to eat,

sleep,

. . . and watch TV
consequently, Oki grew very quickly!

Unlike a certain puppy
known as Skye with Diamonds πŸ’Ž

Here dogs come in all shapes

. . . and sizes

Skye is a bit of a long haired hippy

So we took her to the beauty parlour

filling Oki with envy

of those with lovely long locks

Around Diamond Creek there are plenty

Anyway … Oki keeps herself busy

as a part time cattle dog

and an out gunned sheep dog
(rescued friends here to eat grass)

who found love at first bite

How could she resist?

Love is a wet lick to the lips πŸ‘… 😎

      1. We adopted a dog from a shelter, he was returned 4 times because he didn’t show immediate affection. He was very mistreated by whoever originally had him. Loud noises terrified him, cars or trucks frightened him when we’d walk him, he was afraid to eat in front of anyone, we fed him in a room by himself. It took 6 months for him to come around. He doesn’t know how to play with toys, no matter how many times we’ve tried. He now wants to chase the UPS truck and motorcycles when we walk him lol. I’d just like to beat the crap out of the person who abused him so badly. He’s such a good boy. We love our dogs and 2 cats Sid (from the shelter) and Finn was a 10 week old kitten when we found him. They give so much love and joy.

      2. A very happy ever after story, Elle.
        Some humans have absolutely no
        humanity. I’ve come to some kind
        of conclusion that the way we’ve
        treated animals, the defenceless,
        the helpless, and the innocent,
        during our brief lifespan is part
        of an acid soul test … and a much
        bigger plan πŸ€”

      1. Thank you for your kind condolences, David! They mean so much to me! Our Fur Baby was a part of the family and we will always hold the joy and memories she brought us in our hearts!!
        This was a really great post. I can’t tell you how it means to me to have you post that song by Tom T. Hall in your comment. I love it and it is especially meaningful now! We are working through it a day at a time!
        Thank You, My Friend!!

      1. Especially when the moon if full πŸŒ•

        All my friends
        are well bred canines
        immaculately groomed
        yet sadly rather tame
        As for poets from good homes
        I know they exist . . . but honestly
        I just can’t remember their names
        Poetry from a chain gang
        is what it takes to break rocks
        To capture insanity
        in a sparkling picture frame
        Like Mick Jagger dancing
        in his space cotton socks

      down πŸ”’ by Christmas time πŸŽ„πŸ˜Ž

      Lucky by name and lucky by nature
      to someone like Gypsy as a mother.
      Somehow the love of a dog, and of
      God, go hand in paw together πŸΆπŸ˜‡
