Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

Photo by Simon Berger on Unsplash

They say a dog is a man’s best friend so how did I end up with a mule?
His hiking days are numbered,,
but
then again, he’ll catch a deer or a coyote,
If in his path.

We all have our job to do
and every dog has its day it’ true,
and and so do we but YOU were supposed to
drag my ass up the hill,. .

So be the best version of yourself,
that you can be.
You can run uphill but If you’re a bulldog,
you’ll never beat a greyhound.

So, show us what you’ve got,
You may wish you were a cavalier or a poodle
but it’s not your DNA
and you can’t turn back time.

This is a human condition, animals don’t care.
Grin and bear it,
be who you are but dammit
I didn’t buy a mule


So DON’T………
make me turn you in for a vizsla,
I’m too lazy for that.

Have a great Friday and weekend ahead!

Blessings to you and all you love.

💖

Cindy

I could NEVER trade you in Hunter but DON’T test me!
Have some fun whatever you do!

Dogs are fun, and mules are cool. Have you ever ridden a mule?

I used to ride horses and mules a lot when I was a kid up into my early 20s. I haven’t been on a horse or mule since.

I’ve walked to the bottom of the Grande Canyon and back several times, but again, it’s been years.

I’ve been there several times over the years. We also did some of the off-beat hikes that had narrow trails with long drops on one side and cliff walls on the other. Those trails were a little nerve-racking.

Happy Friday!! I feel a little mulish today, not as in stubborn, but just not into racing anyone today! Maybe I’m stubbornly slowing down. Enjoying the scenery and all the pretty pups on my morning walks. Love your pic! 💞🐾💞

I rode a mule once into the Grand Canyon. Took me a few days to recover. I stick with dogs, thank you. I never wrote a poem to a dog however. Not sure mine would have appreciated it, unless it came with a hotdog. Anything was okay then, unless I tried to slip a pill into it. My basset hound would spit it out and glare at me. Not much poetry there. 🙂 –Curt

YAY!! Another fab fun post! Loved it, Cindy! This line really got me: “You can run uphill but If you’re a bulldog, you’ll never beat a greyhound”. Did you come up with that yourself or is it a well-known saying? If it’s one of yours, kudos to you for a creating a great line. If it’s not, kudos to you anyway just for using it! Fab!! 🌟 👏🏼 💕

Dogs love you but they really like doing their own thing. Just let them out the door and they will be everywhere at once! Looks like he will make a better watchdog than a mule!
