My eyes opened. Not all at once mind you, but a little bit at a time. You see, there was no real hurry for me to wake up today. My big plan for this particular day is to lounge around the house doing this and that and nothing much at all. That is, after all what dogs usually do. It’s a good thing I don’t have much to do, because waking up is never an easy thing.
With a yawn and a stretch, I was wide awake, though I hadn’t thought of stirring from the bed. Instead, I opted to gaze out the window. The sun was doing its thing, shining down on our world. The sky was such a wonderful shade of blue, bluer than cornflower, but not quite as blue as navy. Yes, it was a beautiful shade of blue indeed. What made the morning even better, though, were the big fluffy clouds that were floating through that wonderful sea of air. I could stay here all day just enjoying their journey across our window pane.
Daddy groaned, then rolled over, his arm draped across me. Hmmm, what to do? Well, of course I did what any self-respecting dog would do. I curled up into him. It wasn’t the first time we woke up this way. I hope it isn’t the last.
I may just be a dog, but I have come to learn, we may have the same routine, doing the same thing day in and day out, but each day is fresh and new. Each time I snuggle with Daddy is special and unique. It is a moment to be cherished and relished.
If this old dog could share my thoughts, the one piece of advice I would give is to find the special moments hiding inside of the routine. Embrace them, do not take them for granted because one day, they will no longer be there.
Well, it has been very nice chatting with you, and I would like very much to thank you for your time. Every moment that you spend with me is one that I am so very grateful to have had. Having said that, I think I will close my eyes and relax in my Daddy’s arms and dream a sweet little dream and I shall wish you a good day!
