A Happy Dog’s Day at the Beach

I’m at the Oregon beach enjoying time with old and new friends, all dear. Everything is new and fresh to me. It must be the same for the dogs on the beach today, too. I have noticed all day how joyous the dogs are. They are running up and down the beach. They are playing with each other. They are fetching sticks in the water. They are digging, digging, digging in the sand with their tails a-waggin’.

So it makes me think: How often do we allow ourselves to be that free and joyous? The puppy dogs today are not thinking about their schedules and the pressures of life. They are just jumping in and out of the waves, happy to be there. It’s a lesson I’ll take home with me. Have a happy dog’s day at the beach and take a break from your every day.
