On getting a dog in retirement

Some words inspired by @calliebordeaux on the eve of her first birthday…

@calliebordeaux – butter wouldn’t melt – or would it?

A dog-owning retiree
Was struck by the reality
That a collie dog pup
Is bound to act up
Like a toddler with ADHD!

A brief, reflective moment as @calliebordeaux ponders her next move
