Downward Dog

26 May

I have a 14 year old Italian Greyhound named Enzo. He has recently decided that my yoga room, AKA The Slayer Shala, is now his. He’s taken up residence on my mediation cushion:

He likes to come and sleep on the cushion while I practice or meditate. Sometimes he will come up to me and just stare at me when I am on my yoga mat, sweating like a beast. I’ve caught him in there numerous times when I come home from work. It’s odd because he never had any interest in the room until I started spending all of this extra time in it doing Ashtanga. I think my dog approves of my new practice. The other day I caught him rubbing his face on my yoga mat like a cat. Italian Greyhounds are the weirdest cat/dog/bat/alien creatures ever. His birthday is in August (a Virgo to my Pisces, go figure) and he will be 15. It’s strange having a senior dog. I worry about him a lot. He’s lived with me in three different states and has accompanied me on many adventures. Enzo is a truly excellent Italian Greyhound, even though (or maybe because) he is a freakazoid. Anybody else have dogs who like to do yoga with them? Luckily he’s deaf, so the constant stream of either Death Metal or Ravi Shankar doesn’t even faze him.
