Dogs have feelings too

This weekend my family and I decided that we were going to dedicate more time as a family, dogs included. I looked into dog parks in the area, researched parking options (they have annual passes and senior/disability discounts), and made the outing happen.

To see the joy my dogs felt during this outing was so worth it. All the preparation that went into planning a family outing, at first, was a bit time-consuming (i.e., where to park to purchase the pass, protecting the car seats, getting water and dog bags, etc.). In the end we did it. The result was amazing. It was a positive experience that we needed.

Today’s lesson is about turning ideas into “ido’s” as my dear friend Chaplain Seeda calls it. It may be uncomfortable at first, doing something different. You may never know what it’s like on the other side if you don’t try.

Go ahead. Try it and tell me how it goes.

Here’s Lucky, a thirteen-year-old Chow Chow, after the dog park.
