Late this summer we found an empty bird’s nest in the Wisteria vines on the north side of the Happy Place. Marley the Dog obviously remembered that mama bird going in and out of the shrubbery in spring to the degree that every twitch and flutter of leaf in the bush continues to seize his attention, no matter that the nest and its contents are long gone. Bless his little puppy heart, every time the wind blows, he is convinced that the bird comes and goes in that clutch of vines!

So, to aid and abet his curiosity, he takes full advantage of any promontory that provides a closer look. Ergo, this perch from the Happy Place swing on his Mommy’s shoulder: What a focused dog!

Marley the dog uses every advantage of elevation to get closer to the bird's nest in the bush.
