(#33) Grateful

Sign over my downstairs puppy condo.

As you know, I am a fan of economy of motion. A big fan. I could spend my time on the beach digging and digging in the sand, or I could paw out a little patch and then lie there and ponder. I favor the latter.

And there are times, I look forward to the motion, the activity. 

Since the humans started wearing facemasks and standing further apart from one another, Steve and I have not been as busy as usual. At times it does get boring.  You know, like sleeping 22 hours or so a day. Or at least it feels like that.  

Last week  Steve mixed it up for us. I got quality time with my pup friends and we also visited one of those buildings that we used to go to months ago.

I met new friends at Brewhound (Neptune Beach, FL)

First, Steve surprised me with a visit to that park dedicated to us canines and appointed with cool accoutrements for the humans. (I wrote about this place in Story 46 of my book.)  While I could not remember the last time I was there, I recognized the smells of my pup buddies before I could see them.  I got a chance to run with all sorts of dogs. I took time to lie down as well and enjoy the sights and sounds. And then run some more. Almost as good as a biscuit.

I spent the next day at the Little Yellow Building. I got a cake, too. It said “Gotcha” on it. I heard the humans say five years ago, I came to live with Steve and Hoppi.

Gotcha Day #5 Celebration. Yum. Yum. Yum!

And then a few days later, we drove to a place to visit people who were staying there in beds. A bunch of dogs did a Pet Therapy Parade around the building as we still cannot go inside. We walked up to windows so people could see us. Some of the humans, dressed in blue, came out to say hello. Belly rubs were involved. WOOF! 

Steve and I visiting Community Hospice (The Hadlow Center. Jacksonville, FL)

A varied week. A fun week. I played and connected with my buds and shared a cake with them, as well. Lots of group play and exercise. And Steve and I had a chance to give back to our community.

Grateful for the opportunities.


Thank you for sharing my blog with your friends.

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!
