Three Word Wed -- gesture, immediate, treasure


There's something about the wag of a tail, and
a small treasure in the smile that curls along
the lipline of a furry muzzle.

There's something in those canine gestures that
provokes a Pavlovian response and immediately
curls my own lips into a stupid grin.

*RIP Beaux, my fave canine buddy who was put to sleep this morning*


  1. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know this grief intimately. You've turned it into a wonderful little observation. Who can resist smiling back?

  2. Having watched my 14-year-old dog, Scully pass away in June, well, this opens up a wound just scabbed over. Sorry for your loss and I totally understand your feelings here.

  3. I am sorry for your loss; Beaux would be proud of what you did with this prompt. Anyone who has ever had a dog as pet would totally agree with what you say here.

  4. Aw, I'm so sorry to hear. May he live forever in your heart. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I could actually feel it!! nicely written!!
