The Bali Flower or Plumeria is a genus of the Dogbane family. Balinese Hindus use these flowers as temple offerings or in making incense. Speaking as a canine, if these flowers are in the dog family, I'd prefer offerings of something edible.
"Build me up, Buttercup; don't break my heart" sang The Foundations. As your beloved pet, that's my job every doggone day! I'm a pro at joy building. Don't you wish you could just roll in a field of Buttercups like me?
When humans flutter their eyelashes against someone's skin, they call that tickling sensation "Butterfly Kisses". Too subtle for us dogs. I like to kiss with lots of tongue. All over your face. I can't control my licker.
Butterflies can't see how beautiful they are to others. People are often like that. Maybe we dogs are too. Butterflies are also a transformation from a caterpillar. So next time I chew your favorite shoe, remember I'm a work in progress.
Treats make my whole body quiver with anticipation. Meals are great too; but snacks are surprises like Christmas any time. There is nothing that I love more than snacks. Of course I love you too. You have hands to open the cupboard.
"Did you ever know you're my hero?... You are the wind beneath my wings". As a dog, I know the truth of that song. You are indeed my hero and everything I would like to be. And when you toss my ball or Frisbee, I can truly fly.
Henna dye patterns have been used for centuries to celebrate weddings, births, victories, holidays, good luck or blessing. Humans even decorated their favorite animals with henna. This henna bead is for your dog. I'm your favorite, right?
There's your average, everyday treat, and then there's your gourmet, delicacy, high value treat. I'm talkin' hot dogs, chicken skin, hamburger type treats! Or a really great bone that's worth burying. Like pirate treasure.
The Infinity symbol has many beautiful meanings including infinite possibility, completeness, everlasting love, or eternity with no ending or beginning. It can mean no boundaries or limits. As your dog, I dig that last one.
Connected. Intertwined. Linked. Family. Many things are interdependent in Nature. The flowers need bees to pollinate them. We dogs need you and you need us. Yeah, we're family. So move over a little more. You're hogging the bed.
Humans call their mates "My better half' though the phrase originally referred to a best friend; someone who is more than half one's heart. DOGS are mankind's best friend, so we must be each other's best half, right? I'm the dazzling side.
The number 3 is significant in math and religion. For me, as a dog, it's a goal to achieve. Most humans feed their dogs twice a day: morning and evening. I'm shootin' for mealtime number three! And that's not counting snacks, OK?
