Summer Postcard Blog Hop

Serendipitous Jo (I've completely rechristened her, which I am very careful not to do IRL because I hate being called Nikole or, worse, Nik) (but she couldn't think of a clever nickname, and since I think of Donna at Needleworker Not in Paradise as Jo--she was when she started blogging--I have to distinguish.) Let's get on with that sentence, shall we? Serendipitous Jo is hosting a postcard blog hop, and I'm next to share. 

I received this postcard form Katie at Jeremiah's Mom:

I thought this one would fit well for all dog lovers. Now if only we could learn from them.

Thanks, Katie, for reminding us all the things our pets can teach us. Her note reminds me of this quote:
In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog. --Edward Hoagland.

As readers know, I have a rescue dog called Stella. She's been in our lives for just over six years, and that's how long the dude and I have been working on becoming part dog.

Be sure to check out the other hoppers at Serendipitous Stitching.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Oh I don't mind! I'll answer to anything. Almost. I don't like Joey because I'm not a budgie!

When I started work in the bookshop they already had a Jo so they asked if I wanted to be Jo P or Joanne. I said they could always call me what they had in my previous job - Mrs Perry. Well, it was a school!

Anyway, nice postcard and thanks for taking part.
