It’s an early wake-up call as Baby hangs around the front door anxious to go outside
When coming to the end of the driveway, she decides to go up the hill instead of down.
Where the neighborhood male dog quartet begin barking in unison and attentive aggravated style
For now they are all aware of Baby’s rare visit as she stretches her legs to venture out and pass them all by
The quartet have no choice but to keep within their boundaries behind fences, some on leashes as well
Which results in a short visit among chattering sounds of the other animal menagerie skittering out and about in the familiar mountain meadow wood
When a bear and other dogs live in Baby’s Village neighborhood miles away and roam in their own familiar territory without her around
For the time that she will be visiting us, it’s only the neighborhood dog quartet and a familiar choir of a chattering animal menagerie
Along with my quiet cuddly old bear husband lagging behind still holding the leash
With a questionable look on his face that makes one wonder who is walking who.
And, just bear- ly?!
