The dog park was busy and around 7:00 pm the predicted storm started to move in eared marked by ominous heavy clouds; by 7:25 the sky had grown dark and thunder was audible in the distance. It started to sprinkle and there was an exodus of the park. However Eddie and his owner, Ned; held out. Now Eddie a large English Pointer had been chasing a ball thrown by Ned for over a half hour and was hot. He made his way up to the 5’ by 4’ area below the fountain where the run off had created quite a mud pit; here Eddie decided to cool off and walloped in the mud…he did not just lay in it but pressed his full body into it. He merged his face, dug his shoulders into in, rolled on his back and skidded every which way possible into the mud and then started to frantically dig into the smelly dog urine mud. I ran in to stop him but it was too late; the once white with brown markings Pointer was now chocolate with a choking odor...as thou transformed into a pig who just plunged into a mire bath. He shook and mud went everywhere and now the rain was just lightly falling.
Prior to this I was going to leave as the park was empty except for Eddie and Ned. I offered a towel and to hook the hose up in the small dog park to wash him off. As Ned and I washed down Eddie, while the rain was gently falling; over my shoulder appeared this. At first it was only a single rainbow and very vibrant and strong in colour and then it turned into a double rainbow! I had never seen a double rainbow before! Have You?
It was magical and I stepped back and left Ned and Eddie to take care of them selves and pulled out my camera……I felt such a bond with the path being paved thru the heavens. It was if the two rainbows laid down a “yellow brick road” to happiness and good vibes… if I had not offered to stay and help I would never have seen the double rainbow….the rainbow was enchanting….
Ted stopped drying off Eddie “double rainbows are supposed to be good luck! Hear that Eddie, that means no more mud baths.”
So I clicked my heels three times and wished to be home and had a hot, cleansing shower ……and I still can’t get the images out of my mind.
