Ever wonder why dogs always seem to be so content?
It doesn’t matter if it’s sunny, raining, hot, cold, the stock market is thriving or crashing, if you’re thin, heavy, short, or tall – dogs only want four things: food, sleep, nooky, and companionship. Mainly yours. It’s the most simple, and most beautiful way to look at life.
I often wonder what’s going on in the Wonder Mutt’s head. Daddy insists there’s nothing more than the occasional Scooby Doo sounding huh? I like to think she’s somewhat more of a thinking dog. She has proven to be quite smart when it suits her. Like when she runs outside and squats for .5 seconds and runs back in knowing she’ll score a biscuit. As though I would be fooled into thinking she actually did her business in that flash of time. Okay, call me a fool. A BIG one. Who wouldn’t be for this face?
If there’s one thing Calypso is, it’s a happy dog. Dogs who so long for our companionship, sit patiently by the front door all day while we’re at work, just waiting for that moment we walk in. And anyone who thinks dogs can’t tell time have their head in the sand. Wonder Mutt has her furry dupa parked right inside the door at the same time every day and doesn’t move until I decide to show up. Unless Dad’s home and just threw down dinner. Yeah, no competing with vittles.
However, I don’t think there’s much that makes the Wonder Mutt more happy than when she’s spending time with her humans, either while they’re running, swimming, or just hanging out on the couch. And honestly, neither are we.
So the next time you find yourself all worked up in a tizzy over something that more than likely is really stupid, take a step back for just a second. Look at it as though you were peering down a long, furry muzzle. Can you eat it, play with it, sleep on it, or…well. you know….with it? If not, then do what every smart mutt in the world does with their problems – pee on it and walk away. Seriously. Always seems to work in this back yard. And front yard. And across the street. And up the block, And around the corner. You get the idea.
Enjoy the ride.
Ever try looking at life through your dog’s eyes? What do you think goes on in their heads?
