Dogs can whine stacatto–the black lab jittering in the cat section of the waiting room has dotted flights to sing–a song with teeth in it.
I like this picture. You’ve caught the universal in the specific here.This sounds like the waiting room in Astoria last summer. Crowded walk-in only vet. What a lot of animals that all had to whimper and keep their peace.
Thanks, Alice. Yes, everyone else was behaving, but this poor dog. I have to say I was enchanted by his unique way of expressing excitement mixed with stress.
I like the idea of dogs whining staccato. Rather a sad imagery. 🙂
It was…sad and the sound enchanted me all at once.
I don’t know what style this is exactly, but I like it, and it’s kind of ominous to boot. Cool.
Thanks, Trent. It is a “small stone” –which is simply catching a complete image or thought–just one. Part of the mindful writing bit I am doing this month, just for kicks.
Mindful sounds like an appropriate word. Best wishes for a fruitful January, then.
So poignant, wish I could hug ’em all.
