LIFE'S BETTER IN THE MOUNTAINS

Fridays are Golden

One of the best things about having more than one dog is the pleasure of watching them play together.  Our dogs play in the den, but they really love to play outside.  When they are taken off leash the first thing they do is have a little wrestling match.  No one wins or loses and no one is ever injured.  The wrestling match ends as quickly as it began.  Then the girls will run free at breakneck speed.  Here they are in action:


First thing...we need our leashes off please.

























The match is over.  Just look at those smiles.


Moving forward in these troubled times, we need to be mindful of the needs of others.  As Mother Teresa so wisely said:
Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.

Let's all try to make others feel better and happier.  And I'm sure we will also feel better and happier for having done so.

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!

Nice pics of the girls at play.
Thanks for the reminder of what a wonderful world it would be if more of us took Mother Teresa's advice.
Blessings and have a great weekend

Your girls look positively frisky. Did your weather finally break, or is it early in the day?

seeing your girls play makes me feel better and healthier! I can even imagine the barks and the play growls they make. Dogs are much happier when they have a pack member to wrestle with and nap with.

Thanks for the good cheer in these trying times!

Isn't great how dogs create games with fair rules? Much for us to learn from them.

Thanks, everyone for your comments. Herd has it right...we need to learn from our dogs how to play fair.

Oh how I love the pictures of your sweet goldens. There isn't a better breed of dogs, I don't think. Oh how I miss my sweet girl.
