Doing okay  Hanging Out With the Dogs
and kitty. I m spending a few weeks at friends' house. They have 2 old dogs and a middle aged kitty. So far I have a black eye, a badly skinned knee and a bruise on my arm. The skinned knee came when one stood directly behind me while I cleaned up after the other one. I didn't notice him and as he is a big dog I went @ss over tea kettle. Knee is from that.

In spite of this we have the greatest walks! We go out 3-4 times a day. We stroll as the tripper has arthritis and doesn't move very fast The nicest walk is the last one of the day. We go at dusk when the stars are coming out.

They are farm dogs. Not used to seeing other dogs so here they go crazy when they see another dog. At first I would yell at them. I would just get so stressed out feeling badly for other people and their dogs.

Over the last few days I have learned to talk quietly. It works so much better! So 2 old dogs have taught me what my mother and no other human have never been able to teach me. What peace feels like and that quieter is better.
