Golden dogs amid golden flowers, running on a sunny day. What could be better than a day in June? We try to take our dogs to quiet places within our community where they can run with abandon. They get plenty of normal exercise with three walks every day, but nothing beats being able to run free.
As usual, Lucy takes off like a rocket and then sprints back to us, smiling all the way.
Ellie runs through the wildflowers. She is all smiles as well.
The girls race up and down the hill. I get tired just watching.
Trotting now instead of running. They have made the trip up and down the very big hill several times.
Ellie walks on her final trip up.
Beautiful days such as this one allow our minds to wander as freely as the dogs. For a while we forget all our worries and concerns and just enjoy the happiness that comes with being out with the dogs.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the fathers out there. Hope it is a good one for all of you.
The quote for the week is credited to Nathaniel Hawthorne in some places and to Henry David Thoreau in others. I'm choosing Thoreau because I like him better:
"Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it eludes you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder."
May happiness find you and sit on your shoulder this week.
HAVE A WONDERFUL AND HAPPY WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
