Anticipation

Oscar has taught me this:

Live life in the anticipation that

Something wonderful

Is just around the corner.

(Even if it’s just a dip in the local lake…)

    Our dogs can be great teachers, if we’re willing to take notice! It always amazes me how frequently I find those wonderful things just around the corner! Have a beautiful weekend — both of you!!

    They say that our pets are the best mentors in life. What they give, they give freely – no hidden motives. Such a beautiful dog and very, very wise. What a lesson!

    By the way, Fiona, I just love the orange light on Oscar’s neck against the blue background of the water.
