warm sunshine on an old quilt,

basenji heaven.

Ah, there is fidelity itself, guarding the old pharoah, yes I have seen such floral quilts etched into the walls of Nefertiti's tomb, very popular with her pups. Lovely.

Mmm... makes me want to get comfy with an old quilt, too... maybe a cuppa tea (lacking in sunshine here today...). So cozy.

Inspired by your words and photo:

contentment—
snoozing in sunshine
doggy dreams

(Re your comment on my blog: I remember seeing a movie when I was a child, "Farewell, My Lady." It was about a basenji. From the movie, got the impression that basenjis don't vocalize, that they're pretty much "barkless" and "yipless." Is that a bit of Hollywood misinformation?)

What I meant was...
Lovely, Leslie! (comma)
Lovely Leslie! (no comma)
