It’s a Dog’s Life (or cat’s)


No, that Black-Haired Beauty did not get a complete makeover and dye special. This is just a pic sent to me. But it’s one that makes me smile inside. That Black-Haired Beauty loves her child’s plastic swimming pool, but she doesn’t like baths — go figure!

Not sure whether this lady (or guy???) is happy or sad, but it almost looks like she’s wondering what’s going to happen next. Maybe this is her personal hot tub experience.

Pets definitely have that ubiquitous ability to make us feel good in so many ways. Take some time to notice how much they can add to your life now and again, and if you don’t have a pet, get a hug from a friend’s or neighbor’s:
