Winning (What dogs do)

This week I was thinking about Frankie in his last day
He was spewing liquid fury all over the house
And he started trying to open the refrigerator
(Again)
Frankie can make my life difficult,
But he is a good teacher sometimes

A dog’s life is pretty simple
He hangs out with his
Best friend
Sleeps pretty much all day
And little things like treats and fetch
Brighten their day every time

Unfortunately, hombre happiness isn’t that simple for a lot of us
The problem lies in comparing every day to our very best day
You see chico, dogs have this innate ability to live in the
Moment

You may say it’s because they literally can’t remember further
Back than 8 seconds, which is probably true
But I believe that there is more to our furry friend, the dog

He lives in the moment because he doesn’t have the ability
To compare,
To compare each day to his best day ever like we do

See dogs like my boy Frankie just keep it simple
There is nothing that they can compare to so therefore
Each day is a win
And he gets to wake up to play with his best friend not to mention
There’s always a possibility of an extended game of fetch
Around the corner

Sometimes we just have to step back and although we may not
See each moment as a win
Each day that we wake up and are given the opportunity to change
The world, we all win

If you break it down, most of us have about 5 wins a day
That’s 35 wins a week and 150 a month!
Wow, who knew we were winning so much?

I know life can be tough, but remember
Any given moment can be an opportunity for
An extended game of fetch

P.S.  No p.s. this time, although I do have to say that Frankie is probably better and is now currently sleeping somewhere across rainbow bridge  Cleaning up after that guy was a NIGHTMARE! But I still wish I could clean up after him one more time. :`-( Talk soon…
