Walking the pink carpet

The one where she follows her nose

Calli the Wonderschnauzer’s lovely brown eyes may not be able to discern as many colours as a human’s can, but that doesn’t mean she can’t sniff out some vibrant shades as she explores the neighbourhood.

There’s a tree just around the corner that drops a beautiful carpet of pink around this time every year. If it smells like heaven to us - and it does - then I’ve got to imagine her nose has a field day every time she gently pads her way across the Barbie-hued sidewalk.

The brilliant scene never lasts as long as we’d like, and indeed by the next morning the winds have thinned out the fallen petals, and those that remain have already begun to shrivel up.

I suppose it’s a sad thing to witness, the fading of what was once brilliant. But to the nose and eyes and imagination of a dog, it’s just another excuse to seek out new adventures.
