It’s a Dog’s Life

If you can sit quietly after difficult news; if in a financial downturn you remain perfectly calm; if you can see your neighbors travel to fantastic places without a twinge of jealousy; if you can eat happily whatever is put on your plate; if you can fall asleep after a day of running around without a drink or a pill; if you can always find contentment wherever you are – you are probably a dog.

—Jack Kornfield

Duff photoDuff here. In My opinion, Mr. Jack Kornfield knows dogs. He wrote specifically about Me in this Thought, for I am a Happy Camper. I am Calm, even in the Worst of Times. Jealousy is not a part of who I Am, for I am a content Pup. Falling asleep? And Naps are good too. Yes, indeed. I love to Travel, for there are so many Different places to Visit, Sights to see and Scents to Smell. Living unstuck.

However, I would differ from the author about Food. There are some Items that don’t agree with Me. You too? I love to scarf up Snackerels, say from Picnic leftovers. Or even Interesting smelling Treats in the Forest. (Those sometimes get Me in trouble. Sigh.) But at times, Mom thinks I should try “Different.” I politely look at what’s in My Dish, turn My head and Walk away. My version of living unstuck.

How about You? Tempted to live a Dog’s Life? I say: You’ll love it! Much less stressful than the Average Day for a Human. And You can join Me in living unstuck. That’s the way to Go! #unstuck-living#its-a-dogs-life
