When dogs go missing

Apropos the recent posts here on Michelle de Kretser's novel The Lost Dog, someone at Club Troppo's Missing Link observed the other day that 'cats were always going to favour novels where dogs go missing'.

And how true it is.

And when the cats away the mouse will play.

It reminds me of this eccentric King Charles Cavalier Spaniel we used to have until it passed away a few years ago. Externally it would project the image of the territorial dog from Tom and Jerry, but if always thought if a cat had taken a swipe with its claws, it would have retreated faster than the Iraqi infantry.

I can still remember the comic instances when my dogs bark was obviously much fiercer than its bite (actually this dog really didn't have an aggression bone in its body, for all its displays of masculinity, he was more of the layabout type). But when the doorbell rang the dog needed to put on its show of authority, and would for a couple of minutes produce a cacophony that would disrupt whatever was happening in the house. And then the minute the door was opened the dog would sprint behind the television set to hide. Whoever said dogs are like people wasn't much wrong, mind you hopefully its the only characteristic my old dog shared with Dick Cheney.

What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose.

Within the last 33 yrs, I have seemed in the hand mirror every morning hours and questioned myself: 'If today have been the last day time of living, would I would like to do the things i am planning to do nowadays? ' And also whenever the response has been 'No' for lots of days inside a row, I am aware I need to alter something.
