DOGSPEAK: Getting to the Point

Happy National Poetry Month!

Smidgey continues to enjoy the limelight...

 ...Me? Not so much.

Well, that is not entirely true.

I love making people laugh. (Myself included.)

But sometimes I am self conscious.



These videos are a delight to make. (So much so that I literally LOL during the process.)

And after I finish I am proud...for a minute.

But then I worry.

Does my voice really sound like that?

Am I weird to put this into the world?

Is my poetry good enough to be among *real* poets?

Maybe I should leave it in a draft folder and call it a day...

But then I look at Smidgey's tiny furry face

And I know someone in the world needs to see the joy she brings. 

Needs to hear her *ahem* voice.

Needs a few minutes of silly dog respite from their worries.

Which brings us to the here and now.

To the POINT of this post... a short and sweet video. (It will prove my point.)

(short + sweet = Smidgey)
