Good Things

It has been a rough week around here. Food issues, people issues, other dog issues (that one hit me out of nowhere, too). It’s tempting to wallow in a big puddle of “can’t one thing about this dog be easy?” Instead, let’s talk about some good stuff. In no particular order:

1) Silas’s new tug toy:
There will be a review of this to come, oh yes. The perfect amount of bungee, the perfect amount of irresistible fleeciness.

2) Morning snuggles:

4) Afternoon snuggles (and the best cup of coffee in town):

5) Random acts of non-posed cuteness:

6) Laser beam focus (which we are trying to learn to channel):

There. I feel better now.

  1. Silas looks so cute all tucked up in bed! Such a cutie πŸ™‚

    I go through really bad phases with Del too. There is rarely a day when I don’t worry about him, or he misbehaves in some way and I blame myself. But a little cuddle with him every now and then makes it all better. Being a good dog owner can be hard work, but the positives will always outweigh the negatives.

  2. Tugging and* taking pictures — that is some serious skill. πŸ™‚

    What a great way to stay positive in your own life. I should do this more often; I throw pity parties all the time.


    1. Oh, I threw one. I just kept it to myself, and then did this to get me over it. πŸ™‚

      You didn’t see all the blurry outtakes of that tug session! I’ll confess that I use my phone camera (which is honestly at least as good as my regular camera) for almost all my blog pictures. It’s easy to use one handed.


  3. I agree with Ximena. My pictures of Honey when we’re not tugging are more blurry that your one-handed ones.

    Glad you took the time to be thankful Maybe the coming week will give you more good things to meditate on.


  4. I think cuddles are one of the things I love most about having a dog!

    The laser focus is fantastic. If you learn how to channel that, let us know! πŸ˜‰


  5. Sorry to hear that you’re having a tough times of things. Keep snuggling that cute little guy!

    I’ve done the one handed photo thing and it sure isn’t easy!


  6. You put so much of yourself into Silas’s welfare but photos like these have got to remind you how much he’s worth it…New toy looks pretty cool too
