Especially in Summer
A summer day
One basset hound
She snores her dreams
in sunlight found

Lounging outdoors
the live-long day
no cares, nor worries
take her away

She smells some smells
some neighbor's cat
ignores the presence
chooses to nap

She lays back down
returns to rest
while high above
birds make their nest

Her nose knows much
about the world
secrets abound
mysteries unfurled

You'll find her there
in deep respose
she's got two servants
Humans she chose

As seasons go,
she's quite on point
sunbathing maven
Queen of the joint!

Sniffing Out the Cats Next Door

Boo didn't make it to the summer of 2021, but she always brought us sunshine and joy, even on the darkest days. She passed away 18 December of 2020 at the age of about 14 1/2 years.

On the saddest, cloudiest day I could ever possibly have imagined.
