Dog around the block, sniff,
Hydrant sniffing, corner, grating,
Sniffing, always, starting forward,
Backward, dragging, sniffing backward,
Leash at taut, leash at dangle,
Leash in people’s feet entangle—
Sniffing dog, apprised of smellings,
Meeting enemies,
Loving old acquaintances, sniff,
Sniffing hydrant for reminders,
Leg against the wall, raise,
Leaving grating, corner greeting,
Chance for meeting, sniff, meeting,
Meeting, telling, news of smelling,
Nose to tail, tail to nose,
Rigid, careful, pose,
Liking, partly liking, hating,
Then another hydrant, grating,
Leash at taut, leash at dangle,
Tangle, sniff, untangle,
Dog around the block, sniff.

    Aw, shucks. You are the best. No wonder everyone in your family is so darn good-looking and highly intelligent. Thanks, lady!

  8. Hank. says:

    Hey, thanks! Coming from a master of the art, that’s a great compliment!

    Hank’s using an old, hand-me-down iPhone 3GS which has been thoroughly abused by wind and water yet still seems to “click” often enough for his but-it-still-works! self. Someday he’ll get a real camera, but they can be tough to handle when all you’ve got is four paws and a lot of ground to cover.
