Little Dogs Laughed a Still Life

Little Dogs Laughed a Still Life

When I saw “Little Dogs Laughed-A Still Life” I was surprised at how it made me feel. First I appreciated the dog and the pose and wondered “what’s up with the Pear?”

Then I read the Quote of the Day. I had visions of the wanderer or the homeless person we have all seen sitting somewhere with their little dog, floppy ears, nicks and scratches the body showing evidence of the life they have lived. Still, the loyalty shows through as they sit together demonstrating their loyalty to each other, their appreciation for each other.

No need for me to go on because the quote says it all.

Gentlemen of the jury: A man’s dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master’s side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens.

  1. What an inspiring thought even if there is a hint of sadness in the eulogy of this noble dog. Animals are usually just so much better “people” than we humans. Lessons in loyalty, commitment, and love are well taught by dogs.

    But what is up with the pear? Can’t figure that one out.

    Since we recently lost our best furry friend, FLO this article struck a chord.
    We discussed getting another dog and that only lasted 4 days…
    LACY is our new rescue and we believe we were directed to choose by FLO
