Big Heart Dog Love

Puma and I were well known in our neighborhood as we went for walks twice daily. Through those daily walks I got to meet neighbors blocks away—handsome Puma’s gentle, friendly nature was a great conversational ice breaker.

Expressions of Cat and Dog: Portraits by Artist Robert Blehert

Toadstool in Cityscape, Rose De Dan©2009

Okay, I know I live in Seattle, a place renowned for rain nine months of the year, and should be used to inclement weather, but today I felt way overdue for sunshine.
