The Path Most Followed

You walk me down the same path each time

showing me that other world you inhabit
a thousand sights and sounds
and smells

I am unware of.

You look at me with wet eyes
eager to share your various finds
and the crisp morning air

aligns with my need to rise
for the tour

you want to take me on.

You're my nature guide

and I
the student

who never graduates

learning each day

from my nature dog.
You pause
each bush
of intriguing interest

and you leave behind your scent

I guess to establish your ownership

then leaping along

to the next perpendicular

wondering why I don't

join in leaving behind

my own

pee mail.

And I think to myself
that just maybe one day

at night perhaps
I will

just to see

how you'd


cause I know

you'd never tell

and we'd both walk away

in the stealth of night


leaving behind our combined scents

for other dogs

to know

don't mess with


we have left behind two scents
on this bush.

Woff, woff

and we then move on.

Well, maybe not.
Maybe one is plenty.

Giggle.....adorable write, Lonnie....the imagery is hilarious!!!!

Reviewed by John Flanagan
Written with wry humour, Lonnie;
admire the ambiguity in the opening line
and the entire 'adventure'...
might have to learn to cock your leg, lol,
for complete bonding.
Enjoyed this a lot.

Reviewed by Patrick Granfors
Love the descriptive and pictorial flow. Been down this exact path on many occasions. Current mutts are females but just as sniffy as our previous males. Just as well, like you the thought has crossed my mind. But lifting a leg in public is problematic and squatting is worse. Go figure. Patrick
Reviewed by Christine Tsen
Wonderful wit and perceptual shift here, between the soul of the relationship and the ego.
Reviewed by Janna Hill
Mans best friend & nature guide, a different angle of thought and a touching account. I love the line; and I the student who never graduates.
