According to Buddha

When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick: every time a stick is thrown, you run after it. Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower. One only throws a stick at a lion once.


what’s chasing you? ooh-ooh-ooh oooh
what’s chasing you? ooh-ooh-ooh oooh

i don’t understand a single word that you say
baby are you talking to me?
words that twist around a wire again make
you send through all your secrets to your heart (this line i’m not sure)

what’s chasing you? ooh-ooh-ooh oooh
what’s chasing you? ooh-ooh-ooh oooh


mutt running ~ Edmonton, Alberta ~ February ~  2018

  1. What a dog! Is that a valentine tongue?
    I keep the lion in mind. I’m already a sack of bones. I hope he stays quiet.

  2. Great post!

  3. OMG, What an awesome shot. I love the mix of black and white with the big red tongue. Happy Valentines Day, Hedy. Cheers!

    • that was the colour that day…now sunshine…and yes a lovely day everyday is a love day…imagine…have fun with your students…thinking of you…and your students sending all good things…they’re lucky to have you as you show a strong sense of empathy…we need this more than ever…smiles and joy dear Chris 😀

  4. The capture of your dog put a smile on my face, looks so happy, full of life and just enjoying life. Happy Valentines Day my friend.

    • happy Vday Terry…i also wanted “own” my image…so i put it onto wordpress…i ‘own’ her… 😉 😀 it was a yoga day so it was lovely…have a joyful day! smiles 😀

  5. It’s a fine day to practice something one needs to learn.
    thanks for sharing such fine goodness in your heart.

  6. much more profound than usual, i’ve found this one. need time to take it in, thanks.

  7. Excellent and delightful!

  8. What a delightful frosty kisser–great picture! Extremely cute pup! <3 Thank you for sharing!

  9. Love your capture of your beautiful mutt. Tongue and all. Thank you Hedy for reminding us humans what we can sense through our dogs and other animals. 💕
    Beyond cuteness 💛

  10. such an excellent photo.

  11. Wow, what a pup portrait this is! (I can picture little balls of ice between the toes, ouch!) Happy weekend, Hedy!

  12. Oh what a gorgeous pooch! Lovely shot … I’m still absorbing that quote and wondering about that lion! What’s your dog’s name Hedy 🙂

  13. What a tongue!

  14. that is so cool… …powerful, waggish and sublime… ….you can see so many features in that face. I guess we all love that photo… …execpt the postman 😀 😉 smiles to you, Hedy! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • yes she is not fond of males runners…or men who deliver things to the house…she also doesn’t like ppl in hoodies…she’s a lot of dog…big heart but tough, yet gentle…she’s my protector…I feel vey safe with her 🙂 I 💕 her vey much 😀 smiles over the pond Markus!

  15. Though this dog is probably quite friendly, the close-up and the contrast of the red tongue turns it into a near Stephen King mutt.
    (Puzzled emoticon?)

    • she’s a tough mutt also she has put back the weight she lost from her vaccination damage…she’s back to 107 lbs 😀 but now we have another health issue…next week she has a surgery for a mast on her foot…she’s a great dog…she’s my protector…she’s stubborn and a survivor I’m doing all I can to make her days happy 😊 yes the numbers for my posts can be my biggest challenge as I’m not fond of numbers ~ smiles hedy 🙂

      • Vaccination dammage? How terrible. But 100 lbs seems like a BIG recovery. (How old is she?)
        Numbers, numbers… are a thing I came to learn. For work. (Market research and stats). Numbers are perfect. So simple and true. 🙂

  16. What a brilliant shot! Juno is gorgeous and she’s a very lucky doggy too! 😉

  17. What a dog! Interesting post.
