Hey hello, hello —
How are you today?
It was National Dog Day this week, so there’s no reason to miss a chance to talk about our wonderful furry friends.
I’m going to come right out and say it. Yes, I’m one of those people who often likes dogs more than people. I definitely have those moments, and my dogs have been massively important to me. I’m guessing that many of you can relate with that.
As you can see, my younger puppy, Joe Bob, in the picture above, is having some trouble getting his ears to stand up like they are supposed to. He looks a little silly like that, but that’s okay though. I love him regardless.
My older puppy, Pinky, has wonderful big pink “donkey ears”, which are gloriously fun, but she has her own imperfections and quirky ways too, of course.
Pinky, as beautiful as she is, was born with a broken bendy tail. Instead of curling upwards, Pinky’s tail has a 90 degree bend in it, making the last half of her tail point down. You can see it here, in the picture below where Pinky is having a good game of chasey-chasey with Joe Bob on the sandy beach.
My two silver kelpies are great buddies. They play together all the time. Watching them play together brings a smile to my heart and joy to my day. It doesn’t matter to me that they each have imperfections. They are precious, loyal, dedicated, protective and loads of fun. That’s what matters to me.
Thank goodness for dogs. They truly make life beautiful, even on the darkest of days.
I hope you all had a great play day with your dogs on National Dog Day.
