Ten Days of Pure Joy, Day 7

Ten Days of Pure Joy, Day 7

Smiles are such a simple way to bring Pure Joy to others! ūüėä ¬†Just think of how many times someone smiled at you and it seemed to warm your heart. ¬† ¬† Now, I am not talking about smirky smiles. ¬† No, no, only true smiles that originate from the heart to change someone’s mood or their whole day. ¬† That is why I like to get out whenever I can because everyone takes notice of my smile. ‚ÄúSmiling doesn‚Äôt…

Ten Days of Pure Joy, Day 6

Ten Days of Pure Joy, Day 6

Gosh, I realize that I should just post a Pure Joy every single day! ¬†¬†This being Day 6 of my Ten Days of Pure Joy is one that may be rather controversial for some of you. ¬†Recently, someone close to Nancy suggested that I may not be quite a normal dog? ¬†¬†¬†I think they were also insinuating that my companions also are not quite normal either?! Yup, to me that is part of my PURE JOY because we have never…

Ten Days of Pure Joy, Day 4

Ten Days of Pure Joy, Day 4

Pure joy is often purely simple. Take for instance the vibrant pink petunia I stumbled upon in recent days. We had not planted petunias ¬†for ¬†many years. ¬†(Yes, us dogs are very aware of our surroundings!) ¬† Not only was the ¬†petunia growing under our deck, ¬†it was in the midst of rocky soil, There I was playing fetch from the front and back yards, when I noticed the bright pink petunia. ¬† There was a petunia ¬† NOT ¬†looking…

Ten Days of Pure Joy, Day 3, July 17, 2023

Today was the first time I was able to run beside someone that was biking. ¬†I wish there would have been a GoPro to capture my Pure Joy as we sailed down the road. ¬† ¬†Oh, Nancy told me to tell you that she would never allow me to go more than a fourth of a mile with her on a bike. ¬†At one point, I was almost dragging her ¬†instead of her braking for me. I just can’t seem…

Ten Days of Pure Joy: Day 2, Fresh Rain

Ten Days of Pure Joy: Day 2, Fresh Rain

As I walked outside the other day, it was pure joy to smell fresh rain. ¬†As many of you already know, us dogs have a far more keen sense of smell than you humans. ¬† According to pawsandclawsvet.com ¬†“Dogs can smell 100,000 times better than humans.”¬†So, it is no small wonder that we can smell rain in the air far sooner than any human. Of course, I don’t feel the need to expound on our sense of smell since there…

Ten Days of Pure Joy, July 12, 2023

I think it is time to start ¬†my Ten Days of Pure Joy blogs. ¬† Upon briefly researching “pure joy” I came across a quote from ¬†Robert Ringer, joy is ‚Äúa moment in time when everything seemed to be just perfect.‚ÄĚ ¬† ¬†Also, Robert Evans Wilson Jr. said, ¬† “I think of Joy as a pure feeling that falls somewhere on the scale between happiness and ecstasy.” ¬† ¬†Now, considering those definitions, of course, I choose to write my ten…

Running Freely!

Running Freely!

Yesterday was an extremely beautiful day! ¬†It began with running in my own yard and continuing with even more running at the farm. ¬† ¬†I have already told you how we are looking for a new place to live, right? Well, because of me, they evaluate the space for me before the ¬†house. ¬† I have even heard my companions speak of buying a remote place and tenting it. ¬† Humans do a lot for each other; but seriously, my…
