Saturday SlobberLove

Sometimes on Saturday, after a brisk  jaunt down the beach where we have the opportunity to spot, spy on, ambush, chew and kill a straw cowboy hat, we find ourselves in an unusual situation.

First of all, we’re quite solitary, except for our parents, who tend to yell and scream and hollar at us at every turn, seeing as we’re “OFF LEASH” which is a big fuckin’ deal around here.

Second of all, the sand is just damp enough for our paws to clutch into it as if we were a Formula One race car and so we are able to gather up enough mach speed that we have that feeling in our belly that it is quite possible that we might take flight.

Third of all, we fell the holiday mist and the air and the sense of what’s to come shoot directly up our nostrils and although we sense sadness on  some days and we intuit the sweet grief seeping from the hearts of our beloved keepers we are suddenly overcome with the wise knowing of FUCK IT! GO FOR IT! EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE OKAY WE’RE ALL MOVING TOWARD THAT SHINING TARGET AND EVEN IF WE AREN’T WHO CARES AT LEAST WE ARE TOGETHER AT LEAST WE ARE AWAKE AT LEAST OUR WOUNDED HEARTS ARE TRYING TO SHINE BRILLIANTLY FOR OUR OWN SAKE AND FOR THE SAKE OF OTHERS AND WE FEEL A FIERY JOY BURST OUT OF EVERY CELL IN OUR TINY MAJESTIC BODY AND WE LOOK UP AND WE SEE OUR NON-FUR MOTHER REACHING HER HANDS OUT AS FAR AS WE’VE EVER SEEN A CREATURE REACH AND WE ARE ALMOST ENVELOPED BY HER LOVING SMILE AND WE FEEL CONFIDENT THAT THE WHOLE OF LIFE IS TO TRY TO CUT LOOSE AND TO SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE WHO TELL YOU THAT THAT’S OKAY — TO LET YOURSELF GO AND DROOL AND DREAM AND BE THE BIGGEST VERSION OF WHO YOU EVER DREAMED YOU COULD POSSIBLY BE.

  2. Cooper’s smile is like the sun to the third power. At least that’s what my fifth grade math is calculating!

  3. Yay, Cooper. go for it.
    Just seeing your smiling face made me smile.

  4. I love Cupcake because she actually says FUCK, which is one of my favorite words. And I often say FUCK IT!! Because I just need to.
    And as a juxtaposition of your doggie, I’m so happy to NOT be moving toward the shiny target that is my toilet. Since I’m a little tired of it at this point, and it’s not so shiny anymore. So now I’m going to grab my Red Stripe and go roll in the 20 inches of snow that were dumped in my backyard this weekend.
    Cheers, Cooper.
