Today, I nudged my owners to get out of the house together for a little “Pooh” adventure. Yup, in the animal world, we all know that the new movie “Goodbye Christopher Robin” has all kinds of wisdom from the wonderful Pooh himself. Of course, if you know Pooh at all, you know he would say “But I am a bear of little little brain!” So, it brings me to the point that some of you may think that us dogs too have little brains, but as Christopher Robin replies to Pooh, “No Pooh, I think you’re a bear of a very big heart!” and so there it is! We (yes, that would be us dogs and other animals) simply try each and every day to make it our best day. But instead, you humans get all philosophical and think you are so intelligent that you forget the obvious.
One of Winnie the Pooh’s famous quotes is “Doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.” Gee, when Nancy shared that one with me, I thought, oh really, I have been trying to teach you that one for years and now, you finally are listening to Pooh instead of me? But, it does not really matter because I was planting the seed all of these years. For this reason, I had pushed them to go see the movie yesterday. Take for instance Christopher Robin’s life, he took years to come back to the simple joys of life that we had discussed when he was just a little boy.
OK, I am going to go back to doing “nothing” for now and you know where that will lead me, right?!
