Pooled thoughts.

Hey, you. Hear and wow. (© image)

Don’t do downward, Dawg.

The pool is open!

Every little thing’s gonna be all right.

(How could you doubt that face?)

No dog ever utters: “If overthinking situations burned calories, I’d be dead.”

Find today’s joy – especially in small things. That’s the real of life.

      Roll with it – plopping down in the grass really tickles. Paw waves and thenks for treeing a comment for here

    Such good advice. A meme that has been making the rounds suggests that 15 years ago, we’d turn to the internet to escape the real world. Now the real world (nature!) is an escape from the internet.

      How funny. Unplugged is the only way stay sane and balanced right now. Hey, another plus is extra sunlight means extra Vitamin D absorption for the immune system (and mental health system…) – so a real win-win for any human. Big picture, people. Big picture. Thanks for hiking along

      Good point, Maggie. It’s certainly been an escape from FB, which was so much easier than I’d thought it would be. There was just that one last person being holier-than-thou and I thought, “Why on earth am I here?” I use Messenger but only venture on FB once in the proverbial blue moon. It’s great!

      It’s close to 80 here mid day and sunny – dog approved shallow pool/pond weather…especially long haired/double coated dogs. RC, however has already planted herself on her heated window pad for the winter…except for the short time of sun pool available in there sunny room.
      We all need great outdoor weather now! Thanks for adding a splashy comment

    Those dogs look so happy!

    Great nose shot! I did enjoy being out with the fawns yesterday at the splash pool. Since we’re still enjoying warm weather, I decided to clean it and refill, since they seem to love drinking from it and occasionally getting in it – even when it’s been cold! What fun it was!! It’s probably a 300 gallon stock tank, so draining it created a huge mud hole all around and after 16 little hooves stomped, jumped and dug around playing hard, I too was covered in mud splotches… and I didn’t care. Here’s to finding joy and happiness in simple things!

    Laughing, that look is a “Now give me the dog biscuit look.” Or maybe its just love. As for simple things, I am ever so glad to get back to them. A smiling dog is a damn good place to start. –Curt
