Joyful

Sometimes when you’re enjoying the colours of the setting sun,

You just can’t help but feel the joy bubbling up inside you

Until it tickles and delights

And make you want to roll around in happiness.

All we have to do is open our arms (or paws) and welcome in the joy of the day!

  1. Wow that’s gorgeous! And is there any creature on earth who can express happiness and contentment better than a dog?

  6. You have captured the dog’s pure joy so well. What a picture of contentment.

    We have a toy poodle who used to love to roll around in the snow, in her younger days. We came to call Lambi’s antics “making snow angels” She did it every chance she got, especially when she was on a leash and in front of strangers!
