At least once a week from now on and as long as she’s still with us, our golden retriever Sheba is going to share one thing she does to live life to the fullest. At times when I’m watching her doing something fun, I get this feeling that she knows that her days in this world are winding down, and she is determined to make the most of them. It never fails to bring a smile to my face!
TODAY’S TIP: Don’t be afraid to get dirty!
How did our beautiful golden girl get so dirty, you might wonder? It’s kind of my fault. It was one of our really hot, humid and sunny days. In fact, it was so hot, I sat on the edge of the dogs’ pool to put my feet and legs in to cool off some. Now, you might know that our beagle Cricket is the only one of the dogs that actually lies right down in the pool to completely cool off; Luke and Sheba will only stand in it, occasionally getting a drink of water or sticking their face in to grab the ball.
On this day, I thought I’d be smart, so I cupped my hands and poured water over both Sheba and Luke’s heads and bodies to try to cool them off more. You can see what Sheba thought about that! She actually looked worse than that photo showed, I wasn’t on my pet blogging game that day, and wiped her with a towel before taking the photo. One half of her face was actually black – she looked like one of those black and white cookies!
What’s one thing you and/or your pets did to live life to the fullest recently?
