The sun sets on another day...

I laughed for a while while I watched the dogs run around. It is always good to see your animals enjoying themselves, and as the sun set, I thought of all the wonderful times I have had with animals over the years.

You know, George Carlin said once that life was a series of dogs, and when one leaves, we just go get another cut little er, doggy. I always laughed at that because my life has been a series of dogs. From the first who was a pure bred mutt, to many many more that have enriched my life, or gotten me through times that were devastating or worse. Animals as a whole are a pleasant addition to most lives, and the ability for animals to know when we are happy or sad truly makes our days better.

I can think of few better times than playing with the dog in the lake, or laughing as puppies crawled all over me as a child. Dogs seem to live for the moment, and (mostly because the are dogs) not worry about those petty things that get us distracted all too easy. In the end, life can be better with any animal in it, dog cat, bird, rat, or other.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider each day and all the things we do, consider how we should look at our present all the time, and consider that maybe animals have it figured out in some ways. (Or are just animals) and enjoy every moment they can. Maybe we need to pause for a moment and consider. We can do no less than make sure we enjoy the moments, and press for happiness each day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy your pets...
