What Dogs Teach Us About Living in the Moment
Posted By Lori On December 19, 2012 @ 12:46 pm In Healthy Living,Wordless Wednesday | 16 Comments
This past week our family went from a 1 dog family to a 2 dog family. It’s only temporary. We are dog sitting for our dear friends labradoodle puppy for a few weeks while they are on vacation. Our 13 year old chocolate lab’s  world has been rocked. If only I could explain to her that this lovable, playful, excitable dog will go back to her own home in a few weeks time.
Dogs are known (as well as many other animals) for bringing us so much joy. They are filled with unconditional love, not only when things are going well, but also when we feel pain and are suffering. This little labradoodle couldn’t have come at a better time for a visit. While all the tragedy and heartbreak  is going on in the world around us, both dogs (as far as I can tell) know nothing of it and continue to live in the moment.
Here are a few things that I’ve learned from the dogs this week:
Dogs love ice cream as much as we do.
Just that look is enough to make you smile.
What a gift this puppy has been for all of us.
In what ways do your pets show you how to live in the moment?
