The Good Things - Part 1

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I thought today would be a good day to post photos of the "good" things our canine kids do, the things for which we're thankful.

And we truly are grateful for the richness our Labs add to our lives.

So here's to Baxter, Elsie, and Ridge, who give so much and ask so little in return!

They do everything with enthusiasm.

They take time for back scratches and belly rubs.

They illustrate flexibility. :o)

They express affection.

They pay attention.

They keep our laps (and hearts) warm.

They (well Ridge and Baxter, anyway) know what belongs to them and are content with what they have.

They greet us (and everyone) with gusto, making us feel loved when we return home.

They're generous with hugs.

And with kisses, too. :o)

They know how to befriend those who are different than they.

And they keep us smiling (note peanut butter on tongue.)

Yes, indeed, we're glad to share life with our canine kids. And we learn much from their ways.

I'm sure we'll learn more in the years to come, but for now we're thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

'Til next time,

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Joan. Those pictures are great. I especially like the one with the tongue :)
