Lucy Carries Out Benjamin Disraeli's Advice

If you live with pets, you know how they are usually "all in" and raring to go each and every day.  They let their noses and their passions fuel their optimism.  Sometimes their happy tails look like they are going to propel into the air, then there's the jumping, the licking, etc.   Lucy has come a long way since we adopted her.  She's open to new people, gets treats from the mail lady and people she meets on her walks, and she's not barking as much as she did three years ago.  She's not perfect, but I don't require that.

So, when Inspiration Avenue set a theme for words that inspire or poetry that I like, I decided to go with a quote from Benjamin Disraeli, a British politician and Prime Minister during the Victorian Age.  Here's one link to a BBC page with some information on him if you'd like to read a little bit about him.

I liked this quote from the Quote Garden and thought it helped to describe what Lucy's attitude is. My original photo is edited and framed.  All of Lucy's pawprints remind me of the multitude of small moments and sensations that make our memories.

This was a wonderful photo and quote. When I started to leave a comment, I was redirected to a site searching for and about Disraeli. I finally got back to comments and was able to appreciate how Lucy loves the snow and the paw prints that made this photo so special.
