Gratitude & puppy love

Today is National Dog Day. To celebrate I thought it was time for me to break my blog silence and finally write a post! Seeing as my life, at the moment, revolves almost exclusively around my beautiful fur baby Roxy, it makes sense that she's the one who inspired me to write.

I am overflowing with gratitude for my little pooch. When life gets me down she is always here to make me smile. Watching her chase a ball in the park, so carefree and full of joy, reminds me that things are not as bad as they might seem. Roxy has the ability to flood my heart with happiness and break me out of negative thought patterns. After all, who can stay cranky when you have this adorable face staring back at you...

Having Roxy in my life is good for my soul. Taking her for a daily walk gets me out of the house and into the fresh air. She is so cute that everyone is drawn to her, so I end up having fascinating conversations with people I may never have spoken to otherwise. And training Roxy gives me a focus and a purpose, something that helps me immensely. 

Roxy's puppy energy and her infinite reserves of love make my darling dog a treasured family member, one who enriches our lives in countless ways. Dog lovers the world over know exactly what I mean when I say that. 

So...Happy National Dog Day!
