Rasma Says

Musings, deliberations, flashes of unaccounted for brilliance…

Dog-(dg)-ing the Block



They meet, you see, every once in a while; each of them having a dog, so they have something in common. This is how they found each other, through some dog club. They were glad to have met, now they had someone to have something in common with. They could meet. They could do dog things together.

Like go for a walk.

With the dogs even.

Yes, take the dogs out and show them off. Maybe train them a bit. Maybe make them into better dogs. Maybe they themselves would be better at having a dog. Better at making the dog do what they believed the dog’s intention was, if they themselves would just get out of the way and let the dog go.

The dogs, deep down, know what is needed in order to be a good dog. But the two friends do not trust the dogs on this. That is why they get together to talk about it.

They have gotten really good at getting together to talk about the art and craft of dog walking. How they intend to do it when they actually walk the dogs. Which they can, indeed, imagine. They are creative souls, quite experienced with imagining.

They’ve got a good picture in their heads of the way things could be walking those dogs.
