Remember the good things in life?

As I get older, I find myself looking back and remembering the good things in life. After all, I am a year old now, that is 8 or 9 in human years, time really flies when you are a dog! Humans don’t appreciate the simple joys of life. Here are some of the things I appreciate.

Riding with your head out the window, ears flapping in the breeze is one of the joys that humans seldom appreciate. Thankfully, they would probably run into something if they drove that way. Fresh scents to smell, air to ruffle the fur. Now that is living! But the close up picture makes my nose look big!

Stopping to sniff a fire hydrant used to be one of life’s great pleasures. Remember the good old days when they had fire plugs on most corners? They were a wonderful way to help us keep in touch with one another and reconnect with old friends. The internet works fine, and I am proud that dogs invented it, but it will never replace a neighborhood fire plug or even a large elm tree. You did know that dogs invented the internet, didn’t you? Surely you don’t believe that Al Gore invented it? How silly was that, anyway?

Old squirrels. All we have in our yard are young squirrels. They are so hard to catch, they run fast and although we chase them constantly, we never can catch them. Old squirrels are the best squirrels.

Thanks for stopping by to read my blog.
