Beau reads Tolkien


Here is Beau reading Tolkien – what, again?  The light has to be just right, and he has to be comfortable to read epic poetry.

    Sweet. It certainly is a dog’s life – lucky Beau to be able to lie around and read epic poetry 😀

  2. A very intellectual dog Monica, what are his perceptions of Leo Tolstoy

    • Monica says:

      I think he appreciates Tolstoy but doesn’t re-read him every few years. Perhaps he should. But the books are too heavy for his paws.

  3. HaHa I hope he enjoyed it !

    I love Collies, yes even ones that read 🙂
    Peace, xx

    • Monica says:

      Hi, Laz! I know you love dogs! Beau can find his way home, too – but unfortunately even a collie has to be on leash in town – how boring!

    Hi Monica, they do say dogs have poor eye sight, so perhaps a pair of specialy designed reading glasses may be a good idea 🙂
    Be well Monica
    Kenny 0 dogs 😦

    What good taste he has! Pretty dog, Monica. I don’t see many collies.

  7. Monica says:

    Hi Sandy, Thank you! Collies were over-bred for so many years after Lassie.. Recurring health problems, so it’s probably a good idea you don’t see too many now.

    Danke sehr, Gislinde

    Beau is my kind of canine. I prefer Nick Sparks, Norman Maclean, Kathryn Stockett, Harper Lee, and Mark Twain.

  11. Good to see that Beau is as learned as his Mum Monica. Sorry I have not visited sooner, the poetry and publishing thing got in the way and I’m still only half way up the hill.

    Best regards to you all. x

    • Monica says:

      Hi Talia, Tell me about the publishing – what are you up to? I have been loving your poetry. And you were right – when not reading, Beau is definitely our intrepid explorer, always running ahead with a joyful expression on his face.

    wonderful photo of Beau, Monica, and you know it’s strange, but the same applies to me, 😉 I have to be comfortable whilst reading an epic like Tolkien… a favourite of mine too. xPenx

    • Monica says:

      I know you like Tolkien! You remind me of him, and I couldn’t give a writer a greater compliment. Beau, by the way, is on the couch right now.

      • penpusherpen says:

        ah, I now have a wonderful picture in my mind Monica… but I think I’m a day late in replying… Time difference wise, it’s early morning on the 22nd March here and I’ve just braved the snow to feed the birds in our garden. Hugs to you,… and Beau of course. xx
