Four feet Friday !!! , “Four Feet”, by Rudyard Kipling

Four Feet Friday Molly our Golden  retriever

Four Feet Friday
Molly our Golden retriever

This is Molly our somewhat aging but much loved Golden Retriever, Aging very well I am happy to say πŸ™‚

I took these images while on a walk with her yesterday in some local woodlands and was reminded of this Kipling Poem.

I think he captured so well the love and loyalty that pets bring to our lives and in the last, the memories that they leave when they are no longer able to be with us on their daily walks, of which I don’t think Molly has every mist a day. Mainly because I only need to go near the back door and there she is looking up and sitting down ready !!

I have enjoyed every walk with her four paws – in front and sometimes behind πŸ™‚

Four Feet

by Rudyard Kipling

I have done mostly what most men do,
And pushed it out of my mind;
But I can’t forget, if I wanted to,
Four-Feet trotting behind.

Day after day, the whole day through —
Wherever my road inclined —
Four-Feet said, “I am coming with you!”
And trotted along behind.

Molly Four feet Friday 2.

Now I must go by some other round, —
Which I shall never find —
Somewhere that does not carry the sound
Of Four-Feet trotting behind.

by Rudyard Kipling
