The Tail Wag

Uncle Len or Leonard is one of my best friends. We're both born on the same day - fourty years apart. Leonard is a retired boat builder. Well he was until I brought him out of retirement to help me restore my old wood boat.
Today he was helping me with some woodwork on the transom. The boatyard dogs are running freely, including Fred. My son's dog which I inherited from a pup.
I happen to be bending over cleaning out a brush when he out of the blue made this comment.
"A dog wags his tail with his heart."
I thought to myself, how true. They're happy. In their heart's they are happy and they show it by wagging their tail.
The two legged creatures on this planet don't have a tail to wing around, rather a face they can paint a grin on.
Not always sure it comes from the heart!

What an adorable puppy! He looks like he has so much personality. Great blog! I stumbled accross it on my quest for fellow Victoria, BC bloogers.

He is, although getting on in age. Selective hearing especially...! Look forward to reading your blog. Thanks for taking the time to post a comment!
