Animal Pals

If you’re a friend or a regular reader (or both), you already know that I love all animals, particularly dogs.  And if you’ve ever walked with me, you also know how much I enjoy taking their picture or video.  So this morning, over a few cups of coffee, Holly and I picked out a few video clips to share with you.

Dedicated to Claire and Joy and their care dogs

Waiting in the Weeds – lyrics

It’s coming on the end of August.
Another summer’s promise almost gone.
And though I heard some wise men say that every dog will have his day,
He never mentioned that these dog days get so long.

I don’t know when I realized the dream was over.
Well, there was no particular hour, no given day.
You know it didn’t go down in flames,
There was no final scene, no frozen frame,
I just watched it slowly fade away.

And I’ve been waiting in the weeds,
Waiting for my time to come around again.
And hope is floating on the breeze,
Carrying my soul high up above the ground.
And I’ve been keeping to myself,
Knowing that the seasons are slowly changing.
Even know you’re with somebody else,
He’ll never love you like I do.

I’ve been biding time with the crows and sparrows,
While peacocks prance and strut up on the stage.
If finding love is just a dance, proximity and chance,
You will excuse me if I skip the masquerade.

And I’ve been waiting in the weeds,
Waiting for the dust to settle down.
Along the back roads, running through the fields,
Lying on the outskirts of this lonesome town.
And I imagine sunlight in your hair, you’re at the county fair,
You’re holding hands and laughing,
And now the Ferris Wheel has stopped,
You’re swinging on the top, suspended there with him,
And he’s the darling of the chic, playboy of the week,
The flavor of the week is melting down your pretty summer dress, baby what a mess you’re making.

I’ve been stumbling through some dark places,
And I’m following the cloud.
I know I’ve fallen out of your good graces
It’s all right now.

And I’ve been waiting in the weeds,
Waiting for the summer rain to fall.
Upon the wild birds, scattering the seeds,
Answering the calling of the
Tide’s Eternal tune, the phases of the moon,
The chambers of the heart, the egg, and dart.
A small gray spider spinning in the dark,
In spite of all the times, the web is torn apart.

And I’ve been waiting in the weeds,
Waiting for my time to come around again.
And hope is floating on the breeze,
Carrying my soul high up above the ground.
And I’ve been keeping to myself,
Knowing that the seasons are slowly changing.
Even know you’re with somebody else,
He’ll never love you like I do.

  1. hi daniel
    my name is sheila hall; i met you on my walk recently, earlier this week, at nicomekl flood plain in langley–you took pictures of my german shepherd dog named shadow; i was surprised to learn that you know my daughter, sandy hall, who works at the cancer agency–she knows you very well as she often worked the reception desk–she’s currently on medical leave–she speaks very highly of you it was nice to meet you (my daughter is sending this on my behalf as i have no email address)

    1. Hi Sheila (and Sandy),
      I was thrilled to get your message and to learn that you are my gal pal Sandy’s mother. I just wrote a blog about our meeting last week and it’s titled ‘A Small World’. I’m looking forward to hearing from Sandy, now that she has my email address and phone number. Hugs to you both! Danny
