{This Moment} – 17 February 2012

Every dog should have a man of his own. There is nothing like a well-behaved person around the house to spread the dog’s blanket for him, or bring him his supper when he comes home man-tired at night. ~ Corey Ford

A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

This moment} is a ritual found on SouleMama which was introduced to Corinne by Sarah-Jane, author of Samuel Michaels Photography.

 If you find yourself touched by a Moment and would like to participate, post your picture on a Friday and leave your link in the comments section.

A Miracle

You are not the momentary whim of a careless creator experimenting in the laboratory of life. . . You were made with a purpose. ~ Og Mandino in “The Greatest Miracle in the World”

Remember you’re a miracle too!

Keeping Fit With Yoga

Yoga is a wonderful way to keep fit. There are several postures (called ‘asanas‘) :

There is one ‘asana’ called Upward Dog
Then one called ‘Downward Dog’
And then there’s just Dog!

Have you exercised today?

Rain, Rain

Rain, rain go away…..or I get no walkie today!

Okay so if I don’t get a walk, there are plenty of ways ‘they’ could keep me entertained. For a start, I’m suggesting ‘they’ read this article.

Love and licks

Make Sure….

…that they give you the computer time you’ve been promised. No excuses!

A dog’s got to blog!

Inner Peace

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you  can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and  boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every  day  and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved  ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and  blame without resentment,

If you can conquer tension  without  medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol,
If  you can sleep without the aid of  drugs,

Then  you are  probably  ………


….. The Family Dog

Good Manners

Picture 090
In case your Mama didn’t teach you – it’s always good manners to keep your elbows off the table…errr…cloth! Now paws, that’s another thing!
Picture 093
And once you’ve finished eating signal to the ‘waiters’ to give you more by moving your bowl to their table. If they pretend not to notice you, and turn their backs on you, wait patiently…..Patience is a good virtue, and is usually well rewarded!
I’ll be back with more paw-some wisdom – soon.
