Tanka: Call Of The Wild


black whippet running on loch island


morning dew
wets the summer grass
old instincts follow
where the moon has kissed the rocks
new journeys begin

  1. Every day is a new journey for us hounds – we never get bored! Though we prefer the ground to be kissed by dew than rain – it’s pouring here today and we’re not as enthusiastic as usual about going for a walk. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Millie and Pearl xx

    1. We are so lucky dear friends, every day is a new and amazing day full of adventures and discoveries. We send some Scottish sunshine your way and hope you will be able to explore your dew-kissed trails in sunny Wales very soon! Lots of love from Eivor and Pearl :o) xxx


    1. Thank you dear Lois ๐Ÿ’œ Some get adopted very quickly and there are always cat-friendly dogs among them. There are a few dogs who need an experienced home (e.g. some of the salukis) and we continue to retweet those who have been waiting a long time. Every tweet helps and if you are thinking about adopting there may be a suitable cat friendly dog waiting to put her paws under your table ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ’œ xxx
