|Are you smiling yet??|
Yep, when I have rough days, I think of Ollie, ever optimistic Ollie humping every leg in sight and seizing every opportunity.
Sometimes I think we should all live like dogs...
Shaking off disappointment. Seeing every treat as a rainbow. Trusting first. Seeing the good in everyone whether they deserve it or not.
And, when life treats you badly? You brush it off and keep wagging your tail.
Spring break and summer is coming. Wouldn't you like your pups to be on a cozy couch, next to a dog lover, rather than a cold cement kennel?

A couple weeks back, I got good news. After a night of worry, I thought we needed to once again call it with Seb, our 17 year old pup. It turned out not to be a stroke, but Idiopathic Vestibular Old Dog Disease.
Yep, fixable. My pup has nine lives for sure.
The vet actually gave me tissues and backed slowly out of the room because I started to sob. UGLY sob. Happy tears, but out of control, my friends.
Dang it. (Wiping tears)
I looked up this video since I like the song:
The old couple in the video slayed me!! Just totally LOST it!! Total ugly sobs after ugly sobs. Glad the kids aren't home to make fun of me. I am not even a Christina Aquilera fan, but oh my!
Ugly, ugly cry!
So was this just me and hormones or did it make you cry too??

Yes, this mother's teens always has her party rocking. Heh!
Yes, they make my heart lose itself to dance and that's sappy as hell, so they will roll their eyes if they see this. Double heh! Yep, that's my job as a mom.
