BUTTERFLIES, BEASTIES, BLOOMS ETC. is a collection of photographs depicting nature and its beauty. Accompanying each photograph is a Haiku. This book was written to encourage meditation and a sense of peace. Haiku is an old Japanese style of poetry and is easy for the reader to understand and enjoy. The words create a picture for the mind to think about. This book can be read all at once or on a busy day a few pages may help you to unwind.
I write this book, not as an authority on dogs, as I am not a Veterinarian, but as a person who has observed and owned dogs for twenty odd years. I feel a good deal of information can be learned by observation. While Scotties are my favorite breed, many other breeds are favored by many other people. Many traits are the same throughout the canine world; however, all breeds do not look alike. Some dogs are large, some small, some tiny and some average height. The weight of each breed is different as well as the color of the fur. If you have a dog, you can compare your dog to the dogs in this book, and see the things that are alike and the things that are different. You may see a difference in the dog’s eyes, or the feel of his fur, the length of his tail or how he carries his ears. You will also see your dog likes to play just like Kiltie, MacGregor, Bonnie or Apollo. Through my observations of many dogs, I was able to write this book, so others could experience the joy of owning a dog. If we remember each animal is special, we can enjoy and learn something different each day. The world of nature is wonderful and there is no cost to us to enjoy it, all we have to do is observe
