DOGSPEAK: Hangin' With My Gnomies

Switzerland has long been associated with gnomes...

...for both good and bad reasons.

(along our daily walking path)

In positive terms, they are thought of as mythological creatures that guard subterranean treasures

In more condescending terms, they are an unflattering nickname for Swiss bankers.

In dogspeak, they are friends.

Smidgey wrote this gnome poem for her neighborhood gnomies:

 


Last week I forgot to announce the fifth and final NPM winner of a beautiful hardback copy of my 10.10 Poetry Anthology - oops!

So without further ado, congratulations Sandra Y.! 

And thank you to all my email subscribers! To gnome you is to love you! 

Know who else we love around here?  

MOMS! 

Happy Mother's Day to all moms everywhere*! 🎕

*but most especially MY mom, Pat Magee, 94 years young!

And we love this week's Poetry Friday hostess with the mostess...

Wow, Smidgey definitely has a large "pack" of gnomies!
Happy Mother's Day, Bridget!

Smidgey always makes me smile. Interesting tidbit about "gnome" referring to Swiss bankers, too. I feel my gnomenclature knowledge has been elevated by this fun post.

Smidgey is becoming quite witty these days. Thanks for the background on gnomes. Smidgey seems to be intrigued with all of them in the photo. Happy Mother's Day, Bridget.

So, what's the collective noun for a gathering of gnomes? Smidgey, do you know? (I bet he does!) Thanks for a fun post, Bridget.
