(#30) Appreciating the Little Things

I’ve noticed that the humans seem to be a little different lately.  Oh, they still treat me well when we meet. And some (like Russ, Roz, and Gary) always have a treat for me.

But things are different. The humans stand a little further apart from one another. I’ve not seen Steve hug or shake paws (err, I mean hands) with his friends.  Some don’t sound as happy as I remember them..

My life has changed, too. Steve and I have not visited the big buildings we used to go a few times a week.  I miss seeing all the friends I had made in those places.  Life has really slowed down for me. Steve and Hoppi have not left me over night at the Little Yellow Building for quite some time. They don’t seem to travel like they used to do.

All in all, though, I’m still a lucky pup.  When I snooze (and I really like to snooze) or when I plop on the beach sand, I think about the little things that make a life. Thinks like:

  • Digging a hole in the backyard. (Ok, lots of holes.)
  • Day visits to the Little Yellow Building.
  • Small creatures I see on the beach.
  • A Puppacino.

  • Breaking news alerts (in the grass, on the trees) I read on every walk.
  • Walks to the beach and around the park.
  • Biscuits. (Yum!)
  • My stuffed animal friends.

  • Couch time with Steve and Hoppi.
  • Belly rubs.
  • Cool baths in the backyard.
  • Sitting on the deck during happy hour. (Not sure what “happy hour” is as I think every hour is pretty neat.)
  • Giving chase to those twerking squirrels!
  • Did I mention biscuits?

I hope you have time this week to appreciate those little things that surround you.

In my new book, Roxie Looks for Purpose Beyond the Biscuit, I share stories and lessons about friends, family, and fun. Perhaps it holds a biscuit or two for you!

WOOF!
