Puppies and a new state of mind!

Puppy Power!

{}{}{}{}If you need to find a reason to smile, you may want to visit your local breeder.{} In fact,{} dogs are used in therapy for the elderly or children who need encouragement.

{}{}{} We recently adopted two lab puppies.{}{} We already have our wonderful ten year old beagle.{} But for some reason we decided to take on puppihood once again with three boys in the house.

{}{}{} While it is a lot of work, and can be zany and tiring especially at 3 in the morning,{} it's also one of the most rewarding tough jobs I've ever had.{} They are so cute and offer a reason to smile, even at three in the morning.

{}{}{} But even more than that, I have seen what effect puppies have on our three boys.{} The boys have great paternal instincts that I have never seen before.{} Watching their patience, tenderness and caring for these little furry{}friends simply melts my heart.{} Watching these boys train, feed and even clean up with little or no complaints shows me that they are maturing.{} It is a welcome glimpse of the fine men I believe they are becoming.{}

{}{}{}{} We as a family have the usual dramas, day to day crisis, challenges ect.{}{}{} But while dealing with life's hiccups, and looking into the brown or green eyes of these puppies... they remind us that life doesn't have to be that complicated.{} Life should be enjoyed.{} To watch the pair frolic and play lifts the spirit.{}

{}{}{}{} So again if you need a little attitude adjustment and it's hard to recognize your blessings, maybe it's time to make an addition to the family, and remind yourself that joy should be a part of each day, just a a puppy meets each morning with a pounce on a toy or a fellow lab...{} I hope you find your joy today with an image of a panting puppy expecting a pet on the head!

{} God Bless!
