Unintentional Wisdom

On more than one occasion I've written about how our dogs have taught and reminded me about staying present. And lately, with the loss of both Cissy and Joy, I've been reminded of the need to do that. I've also been reminded of their unintentional wisdom. So, I thought I'd share a bit of that wisdom with you today ...

From Rhett:

More advice from Rhett, who is very wise:

From Todd - Simple wisdom:

From Rhett, Todd, Charlie and Max

I will be back to normal-programming in my next post.  I've just needed a little break. But I do want to thank you all for taking a moment and leaving such kind words of comfort for the loss of Joy this past Sunday. Your sharing her loss as well as Cissy's along with me, means a lot, and continues to remind me of the kindness and compassion of the blogging community.  You all are the best!

  1. I read your words and the loss of Joy, and had too many tears to leave a comment. You give so much, and as each one leaves, they also leave so much in their love, happiness with you all, and the memories.I think each one, as they stay with us for a short time or many years, shows how they give, and love in their own way. Hugs. XXX

  4. Wise words indeed, but we know that our fur babies are wise beyond their years. Todd has the right idea, but I'm not sure if that applies to us humans too - apart from the ice cream !

  7. We think the pups give great advice. Todd has the best advice as far as we're concerned...especially that ice cream part.

  9. Dear Kim, you are the best. Dogs are wise and knowing, all we have to do is pay attention and listen. Mine suffer sometimes with my ups and downs of living with Type 1 diabetes, so I would like to add that dogs are also the most forgiving and understanding of all.

  11. Poor you. There seem to have been a lot of farewells over the last month or so. Of course loved dogs ,being more in tune with the universe, know that there's no such thing as a farewell - just a chance to run on ahead, sniff the wet grass and dream of new adventures. Stay strong.

  12. You know - Rhett is a rock star! I loved his wisdom. I wish that I could meet him :) Keep on relaxing as long as you need to. What you do for dogs who need you is beyond incredible. I showed the Runner your recent photo of your office, and we smiled really widely. Given our recent events, we are amazed by how well everyone gets along :)

  15. Take time to smell the flowers...dogs know how to live. ♥ They would also advise you to take all the time you need to try to find that new normal. It is not easy for sure.

  17. Sadness shared is sadness divided, isn't it, my friend. You know that I too share in your grief over the passing of sweet Cissy & Joy, as in all the others before them. My dear granddog, rescued after being abandoned in a park at 9 years old two years ago, has been just diagnosed with cancer. *sigh* My mind screams "But she just hit the jackpot, Lord, with a new & wonderful home. Don't take her yet!!!"... but then my heart gently whispers "Thank you, Lord, for allowing her to know compassion, a soft bed, children's hugs, good health care, Christmas presents, and Easter baskets in her lifetime." They never live long enough..... xoxo Love, Andrea
