Wilma Wednesday 2: Asking

Wilma, Wilma Dialogs, boxer, boxer mix,

“Can we play?”

“Maybe later, Wilma. I have to work.”

I turn to enter the house.

She breathes a despondent sigh.

I stop and turn back.

I throw her toy and she runs for it, killing it with joy and abandon.

I can deny her nothing. Is it any wonder?

    Those eyes are definitely ‘windows to the world’….ok, I am melting… and yes, I won’t deny it, I am a sucker for animals- any animal….oops God’s creatures…Wish I was a neighbor, I’d play with her, walk her, feed her… They are so condition to routine, break it and as u can see (by her eyes), she just doesn’t get it…
    So, Wilma, is she breaking down yet? will the next post show u on a walk w/the Queen? 🙂

      She walks twice a day with John, so she’s doing fine. It’s me who’s going stir crazy!

    After all, she is irresistible!

      I have to agree!

    she misses YOU… not saying she doesn’t appreciate J… but you are her mama.. 🙂

      She spends a lot of time with me. She’s napping at my feet right now. But we both miss our walks together, and I’m sure John will be happy when I can take up the leash again.

    What an expressive face – she’s so huggable. Thanks for stopping by my blog and FYI Dr Grace now has a blue plaque on the house where she opened her first surgery – justly so. Hope your foot is healing. What was the surgery for by the way?

      I’m glad Dr. Grace has that coveted blue plaque! Did you have anything to do with that? You’re immortalizing her in your story.

      Thank you, my foot is healing very well. I had surgery to correct a bunion. Ouch!

    Aw Wilma…no one can deny those big brown beautiful eyes!!!

    • Petrea - October 20, 2016 @ 11:04

      Especially not me! (Or you!)

    No, you can’t.

    You’re a wonderful Wilma-mum, Petrea.

      She’s hard to resist, Shell.
