Thankful Thursday - The Labraduo!

Today, my gratitude is simple. I am grateful for how much my dogs have taught me throughout my life.

They have taught me about love, trust, happiness, and a carpe diem attitude. I've lived with dogs for almost my entire life, and each one has taught me something unique. In the case of Shyla, she's taught me about trust. She trusts me and the Runner despite all that damaged her before we knew her.

R has taught me about taking delight in the slightest little thing. He has the most unfettered happiness of any being who I've ever known.
R says "Seize the Day", and we all follow his proclamation!

Thank you to Brian for hosting the Thankful Thursday blog hop.
