Snow. We have a light covering of snow on the deck. It is very little but just enough to say, “we have snow.”
My plan is to spend much time researching and writing. I am sure there will be some documentary breaks, napping, and Fab Five time.
I have read this post, often, and love it.
10 THINGS YOUR DOG WOULD TELL YOU…
1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years. Any separation from you will be painful: remember that before you get me.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me. (Always!)
3. Place your trust in me – it is crucial to my well-being.
4. Do not be angry at me for long; do not lock me up as punishment. (I might growl but there is no punishment; my Fab Five always want to please me)
5. You have your work, your entertainment, and your friends. I only have you.
6. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understand your words, I know your voice when it is speaking to me. (We have a lot of conversations and sometimes I know my pooches really understand me!)
7. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget.
8. Remember before you hit me that I have teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you.
9. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I might not be getting the right food, or I have been out too long, or my heart is getting too old and weak.
10. Take care of me when I get old; you too will grow old. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say: “I cannot bear to watch” or “Let it happen in my absence.” Everything is easier for me if you are there, even my death.
Make it a great day!
