Paws on the Street Part Five: Just the Two of Us #WordPressWednesday

Paws on the Street Part Five: Just the Two of Us #WordPressWednesday

This morning, I woke to leg cramps, aching knee and shin bones and slightly swollen ankles.

I felt like my entire body was sprung and for a moment all I wanted was to crawl back into bed, pull the covers over my head and hide from what lie ahead.

Then, I heard Blue wiggling in his crate, his tail thumping out a ratatat Ratatat rhythm and in that moment all my hurts, worries and fears melted away.

Later, when we went out to relieve when I squatted to pick up after him, I found I could barely get down to get the job done and when an instructor named Oscar came along offering a hand, I gratefully took his help back to my feet.

Back in our room a few moments later as Blue rested obediently in his crate waiting for his breakfast, it occurred to me that we were in the last day of our training here in the protection of The Seeing Eye bubble and for a moment the panic nearly swept me away.

Just when I thought I might go over the falls a snatch of a song popped into my head and taking a breath to steady myself I called “Alexa, play just the two of us.”

As the music washed over me and Blue came to gobble up his breakfast, I knew everything would be A-OK.

Later as Blue led me into the community lounge for my first cup of morning brew I felt a sense of confidence flowing between us and once again began to sing our song.

I know that no matter what lies ahead for us as we begin our journey together, we can if we allow ourselves to depend on one another and no one else overcome any obstacles placed in our path.

We are Team Blue. We are one yet we are we.

We are Team Blue So! Mote! It! Be! Blessid Be!

Amen.

Lyrics

I see the crystal raindrops fall

And the beauty of it all

Is when the sun comes shining through

To make those rainbows in my mind

When I think of you sometime

And I wanna spend some time with you

Just the two of us

We can make it if we try

Just the two of us

(Just the two of us)

Just the two of us

Building castles in the sky

Just the two of us

You and I

We look for love, no time for tears

Wasted water’s all that is

And it don’t make no flowers grow

Good things might come to those who wait

Not for those who wait too late

We gotta go for all we know

Just the two of us

We can make it if we try

Just the two of us

(Just the two of us)

Just the two of us

Building them castles in the sky

Just the two of us

You and I

I hear the crystal raindrops fall

On the window down the hall

And it becomes the morning dew

And darling when the morning comes

And I see the morning sun

I wanna be the one with you

Just the two of us

We can make it if we try

Just the two of us

(Just the two of us)

Just the two of us

Building big castles way on high

Just the two of us

You and I

Just the two of us

(We can make it, just the two of us)

Let’s get it together baby (yeah)

(Just the two of us)

Just the two of us

(We can make it, just the two of us)

(Just the two of us)

(We can make it, just the two of us)

(Just the two of us)

(We can make it, just the two of us)

(Just the two of us)

(We can make it, just the two of us)

(Just the two of us)

(We can make it, just the two of us)

(Just the two of us)

  1. With you in Love, darling Patty…one day at a time…one step…one paw…always forward in Love and Hope…forward team Blue!

  2. Team Blue, you got this!

  3. Patty, I couldn’t get the link to the song to work, even when I copied and pasted it into Google Chrome’s open location window. So, I found it on YouTube. Here it is in case anyone else is interested. Wishing you and Blue the best of luck going forward.

    1. We’re home. WE’ve both had supper and Blue is lying beside me peacefully chewing a bone.

      1. Oh, that’s great! I’m glad you made it home safely.

        1. I must say, I’m glad to be here.

    2. Hi Abbie, I’m getting ready to edit and repost this post.
      Thanks so much. I know I replied the other day but it’s been a crazy busy couple of days and I’m seriously just now finding time to spend more than five minutes or so at my desk without Blue wanting something.
      Tired dogs really are good dogs. I wore him out this morning and thanks be to Juno he is sleeping.

      1. Patty, you’re so welcome. I know how it is. My late husband Bill was the same way when I cared for him. Until he got interested in a ball game or a good talking book, my time was not my own. Good luck with everything.
