No Dogs Allowed

Hayden Valley wildWalking the Walk, Anyway

 You talk the talk
and we walk the walk
but when nose goes to sniff
and tail begs to wag
Where are you?

 In Yellowstone, no doubt
where we can’t follow
not having the bona-fides
of wildness

and not caring to lounge around all day
while you work up an appetite
on the trail
and not knowing why in the world you
would want to leave home,
anyway

    Beautiful poem, beautiful place, however dogs are allowed. We had our two Airedales in a Jeep backseat and a buffalo came right up nose to nose with both of them, then just walked away, not one of us moved for the cameras until we could breathe again, also beautiful moment!

      Thanks so much, Sachem – dogs in car or on the road – yes; on the trail, a big no-no. Attraction or competition – either way, dogs in the backcountry are a bad idea. Airedale-buffalo nose-to-nose would be a great picture!
