May Day! May Day!

The night-winds come and go, mother, upon the meadow-grass, And the happy stars above them seem to brighten as they pass; There will not be a drop of rain the whole of the livelong day, And I’m to be Queen o’ the May, mother, I’m to be Queen o’ the May. All the valley, mother, ’ill be fresh and green and still, And the cowslip and the crowfoot are over all the hill, And the rivulet in the flowery dale ’ill merrily glance and play, For I’m to be Queen o’ the May, mother, I’m to be Queen o’ the May. So you must wake and call me early, call me early, mother dear, To-morrow ’ill be the happiest time of all the glad New-year; To-morrow ’ill be of all the year the maddest merriest day, For I’m to be Queen o’ the May, mother, I’m to be Queen o’ the May.
(excerpted from Alfred Lord Tennyson’s “The May Queen,” circa 1833)

No, I am not in distress, although it does look like I am being swallowed by a field of hungry grass! I just thought I would have some fun with the name of today's holiday, so I hope I did not scare anyone. I was in the field hunting for some animals dancing around the Maypole, as I wanted to celebrate and join in the festivities. Alas, I found no Maypoles and no dancing animals, or humans for that matter. But I am sure somewhere in the World there was a May Day celebration of fun!

I am excited to be able to blog today and say "WOOF!" to every pup/kitty/animal/human! I have really missed blogging, as it is my only form of creative outlet, apart from my expressive nightly howling. When I don't blog all that creativity inside of me has no place to go, so I nap a lot. Or draw stick dogs in the dirt. I have especially missed visiting all of my friends so I will be very busy this week sniffing my way around the blog-o-sphere and getting all caught up. I hope all the news this past month has been good and happy! Sadly, one of my blogging friends lost her beautiful dog of 10 years, Henry, last week. I unfortunately never met Henry, but have read of him on his mom's blog and from seeing his photos and looking into his Soulful eyes I can tell that he was a very sweet, loving, and gentle doggy and Soul. Henry will be missed greatly, but I know he is playing happily over the Rainbow Bridge waiting for the time when he will see his loving family again!

I hope no one missed me too much! Since things are still not settled for my human my blogging will be sporadic for a while. If some of you are experiencing Suka-withdrawal symptoms, such as: fur loss, excessive drooling, constant scratching, and/or barking at the neighbors for no apparent reason, then please let me know so I can guilt my human into letting me blog more often. I can also send you a pawtographed Suka photo, since it has been scientifically proven that looking at me every day takes the awful Suka-withdrawal symptoms away. I'm just sayin'...

I have tears in my eyes. Thank you for remembering my boy. He took part of my heart with him when he died.

We still have 5 dogs full of life and love so we are trying to focus on happy memories even though we cry often.

Hugs to you Suka and friends.


Woof Suka,

Sorry we haven't woofed in awhile. It's been a tough year but we promise to stop by and bark at you more often. We've missed you.

Woof Suka,

Mom cried when she read the comment you left on our blog. Of course she had to laugh as well at "Meatloaf". She had forgotten that was Toby's real name. Thanks for all of your kind woofs and we're gonna try hard to stay in touch.

Hi Suka, nice to meet you! Thank you for coming by our blog!
We love the pic of the animals dancing the Maypole. My mummy said she did a Maypole dance at school in Yr5. It was complex and they rehearsed a lot but it was beautiful, she said!
You are a very handsome pup!
