Love is Everywhere
As I was walking through this park, I felt someone touching my bottom. Who would dare to touch me so intimately without my consent? I turned round and saw a grey Weimaraner dog with a frisby in his mouth. He had such beautiful eyes.
"Hello you!" I said to my new friend. "What can I do for you?"
He poked me with the frisby.
"Do you want me to throw the frisby for you to catch?" I said. I reached for the frisby but he wouldn't let go of it.
"What does he want me to do?" I asked the dog's human friend.
"He wants you to run so he can chase you," she said.
"Oh I see, he hasn't been having much luck with you, so he's picked me," I chuckled.
I stroked his head and walked away but he followed me.
"I'm amazed how he can pant with a frisby in his mouth," I said to the woman. "With such a skill he should go on Britain's Got Talent."
"Can you just imagine?" she laughed.
I then said goodbye to my friends.
A few minutes later as I was walking down this road, I noticed a woman waving at someone in a house. The woman she was waving at was another woman sitting by the window carrying her baby. When I waved at the baby, mum and baby grinned and waved back.
An hour later at my local park, I met my neighbour and his two dogs who were playing with a ball and chasing each other. I chatted with him for a few minutes.
I believe anyone who thinks there's not enough love in the world is walking around with their eyes closed.
Love is everywhere.
