TBH it was a most welcome break, and a time where we could reflect on the year just passed, and plan for the year ahead.
I’ve decided on a personal theme for myself this year, which can be summed up in one word – Happiness – My thinking is that if you try and make yourself happy then everything else in life must be good, or should eventually fall into place.
Happiness comes in all shapes and forms but mid last year we posted a blog stating that happiness is Canis Lupus or Dog to you and me
I’m sure everybody reading this blog right now or maybe years in the future, will have experienced the happiness that a dog can bring into your life.
But let’s flip that card, and look at it from a dogs perspective.
What really makes your dog happy ?
Is your dog happy sitting with you on the sofa after a good long walk and balanced feed, content that his or her basic requirements have been looked after 100% ?
Or maybe it’s doing what your breed of dog was bred to do, be it hunting by scent or sight, pulling a sled, guarding a flock or just being a companion to get you through each day ?
Don’t let your dog become a means to an end, because I’m sure that even though you may only be truly happy if you are top of your chosen game, your dog doesn’t give 2 hoots as to the colour of the rosette you may be awarded at one of your chosen events,
So whatever activity you and your dog get involved in, make sure that your dog enjoys doing it, as happiness with your dog is a 2 way street.
