For NaPoWriMo day 21 (it is day 21, right?), I have written in response to DVerse’s prompt about animal companions. As my family has no pets, I was unsure what to write about, until inspiration walked right past my window. 😊
With no cute animal to cuddle here,
What joy it is, to look outside and see
Through open windows, sunlight welcome, clear:
Several owners of dogs, walking daily,
Brief but cute glimpses are a light to me.
Masked owners with their canines walk the street —
It’s too bad that we’ll likely never meet.

I, too, love encountering dogs on my walks, or at the beach. My eyes follow them, I carry treats in my pockets. Some of them know this and DRAG their owners, gasping, up to me…..LOL. Social distancing means far fewer encounters and no patting. But I still carry treats in the hope of making some dog smile.

I walk my dog daily too. He would never tolerate missing his walk. It’s a nice view from the other side…
The image of masked walkers will be emblems for this time, once we exit its grasp.
I, too, have seem many dog walkers on my street–just not the masked kind.
It is too bad indeed. Perhaps things will change for the better once more.
Bright spots in a dark time.
This is really heartwarming…afternoon walk for me too is partly fun because of the cute dogs walking along with us…dressed in their colorful doggie suits…😉😉😉

Dog parents are the only ones allowed to go out for a walk. I envy them.
These times in lockdown, dogs are great companions to be able to get out at all.
