Be the Person Your Dog Thinks You Are. Gratitude Experiment: Day 81

After traveling for a few days while my pups were at the kennel, I am truly grateful to have them back.

They melt my heart, make my bad days good, and are the most accepting creatures on this planet.  How lucky we are as humans to have animals as friends.

My favorite bumper sticker says:  Be the person your dog thinks you are.

I love this saying. How much better of a place would this planet be if this was how we all acted? Forgetting about all the junk  of life (and the politics this week) and all of the things that bother us …  and just being kind, grateful and loving?

Short and simple as this is, for these pups (Piper Cub and Tony Soprano), and for all they teach me, I am grateful.

What pets you are grateful for?

  1. I have one puppy that never stops forgiving me for the days I miss taking him out on walks (we have an acreage so he gets lots of exercise not to worry). He loves to lick and snuggle and get a good tummy rub of course. He is so loyal. Where ever I go he follows. He is a keeper but unfortunately is sick so I really should appreciate every minute I have with him.

  2. They’re both very precious. They look comfortable hanging out on the furniture. I have a dachshund that I love with all my heart. He’s not a pet, he’s a part of the family. He has the most personality I’ve ever seen in a dog.

  3. Thanks to my dog, I have celebrated every gorgeous autumn day by walking. It’s like a gratitude journal without the words : )

  4. I have a cat who behaves like a dog— fetches and speaks. Clearly, my husband wanted a dog because he taught the cat these tricks. Luckily he didn’t want a boy when my daughter came along, LOL. My next pet will be a fish. Not plural. Just the one.

  5. I totally agree, and I love my dog, Alex, and every single dog that stays with me regardless of whether this is for a short or long time:) They are the best teachers, aside from my aunt who raised me, I could ever hope to have:)
