April 25, 2020

If you have read my blog for long, you are aware that I am an old dog now.  Perhaps for this reason, I feel a need to write my blog more often at times. I have always dissolved any hint of worry on my blog because I happen to know that you humans tend to be consumed with such  ineffective coping. I would never know about the  coronavirus world crisis right now if I was not forced to watch the news. But, I do know that worrying never accomplishes anything, except more stress. So, my new mission is to district my owners who happen to be my family, to flee from worry.

You may ask, well how do you suggest I distract them from worry during such a world crisis?   Well, the obvious answer is to get them out on far more walks!  With more walks, everyone benefits!   I will remind all of you to take deep breaths and meditate on all the beautiful earth surrounding you on those walks. Just listen to the birds singing or squirrels scurrying up a tree. Of course, one can always look up to the sky and soon dreams will replace all that worry! Speaking of dreaming, don’t forget to get enough sleep too.

Last, but certainly not of less importance, watch each day to see new blooms on trees or perennial flowers. We have both iris and tulips on the side of the house and we just noticed today that the tulips are almost ready to bloom. I am so excited to see what garden pots Nancy will plant this year? Oh, I really must finish the blog now and go motivate her to plan her garden containers this year. Last year, we barely had any and I just won’t hear of that again!? This Lighthearted Louie needs lovely landscaping! Also, you too, don’t forget to bloom!

  1. It is SUCH a great idea to take a break from the news, enjoy the beauty in nature, and get some fresh air (as my mom used to put it). Yesterday Aria & I were listening to two owls calling back and forth to each other…the sounds were so peaceful. I think we hear them much more acutely now that they aren’t masked by airplane noise, and we aren’t so busy that we have time to notice them. Today we were treated to a wild turkey in our front yard, as well as daffodils blooming and tree leaves just ready to burst after today’s rainfall. And much to Stefan’s chagrin, grass that will soon be ready to mow! We have had such a beautiful spring this year – I hope you get out to take it all in 🙂 Thank you for sharing the picture of your gorgeous tulips!

  2. Right on Louie! When I got my standard poodle, Ben (gone now since 2015) I gave him a registered name of Refinne Joie de Vivre (Joy of Life). He did bring joy to all who knew him and we all need some joie de vivre in our lives now – thank you for reminding us and joy to you and your family! Keep smelling those flowers everyone!
