With the coming of 2018, yet again another new year, the same thoughts of re-emerge in my head.
Resolutions. They stay right through till about Chinese New Year. Then life is back to normal again. And it repeats yearly.
But if life is indeed short by whichever measure, how best to live our lives. Our dogs might just have the best answers for it.
This blog at Ruffwear.com says it all for us. We are not going on a road trip. But if we could do half of what dogs do, it wouldn't matter if we live 10 years or 80 years.
Short excerpt from the blog by Ruffwear Ambassador Mallory Paige.
"He taught me what it means to fully live every moment. To get lose-your-mind excited when it snows and run with uninhibited joy on the beach – even if you’ve been there a hundred times before. He taught me to wake up with a smile and go to bed tired from a day well lived. To turn strangers into friends and greet everyone you meet with optimistic enthusiasm.
Most of all he taught me what it means to be loyal and connected. To love someone with all your might and only want the best for them. To be willing to sacrifice and to give without martyrdom. To be generous and kind, patient, and loving."
If anything, we'll be spending more time with our dogs in 2018 and years to come, and learning to do what they do best. For it is a blessing they are sent to spend their lives with us. We are the chosen ones.
