Our lives can be like the sea, sometimes the water is rough and turbulent, and sometimes all is calm and serene. But no matter what trials we face, our dogs have this magical way of knowing what we need, and they can calm the wildest storm within us. They provide companionship, and are always ready to accompany us on any adventure.
So when I am ready to explore new territory, and seek to find the beauty in the world around me, my dogs are the perfect guides. They take nothing for granted, and are happy just to be invited along on the journey. Their lives are so short, and they spend most of their time waiting for our return, How can we not devote ourselves to returning a bit of the joy they bring into our lives?
If you cannot see the wonder that surrounds you, just try to view the world through your dog's eyes. Like a lighthouse, let them guide you through the darkness.
Today was "National Trails Day," did you get outside to take a hike with your best friend? As you can see, we had a wonderful day.
