Apparently I had a big decision to make yesterday. I didn't even know such decisions needed to be made!
There I was looking through my toy basket trying to decided what toy I wanted to play with. When MOM came in and said something about sorting through all my toys AND I had to decided what to keep and what to give away! WHAT?
So she moved all my toys to the living room.
Then she spread them all out. I love my toys. There is a story behind just about every one.
Here is my pile of stuffies. Sure some are missing parts, but I still love each one. It does not matter to me that "Want to be Bret Michaels" Squirrel's head is detached.
Here are my ball and rope collection.
And see this blue ball with all the teeth marks in it? I have had this ball since the day I came to live with my MOM over 12 years ago.
And here is my collection of squeekies and miscellaneous other fun toys. It is now that I am suppose to decided what I want to keep.
MOM why do I have to do this?
Because Gooseberry, you have a lot of toys and while I do not mind that they over flow your toy basket I thought it would be nice to give some of them to some doggies who don't have any at the rescue place and shelter.
There are doggies that don't have any toys?
Oh. Yum, well I guess I do have a lot. I get to pick what I keep and what I give away?
Yes you do, they are your toys.
OK, lets do this.
After what felt like 87 hours this is what I decided to keep. I know it looks like a lot, but what I am giving away is even more, plus I threw in two BIG containers of yummy jerky. Can't believe there are doggies that don't have any toys.
Then MOM put all my toys back in my basket in the office.
Hey MOM do you think those other doggies will like the toys we are going to give them?
I know they will.
You know what? Giving stuff away, especially stuff you really like, is really cool. And my heart feels all warm and fuzzy.
You know what Goosie? You make my heart feel all warm and fuzzy all the time.
Who knew that giving and sharing could make you feel so good. It also made me feel very blessed for all I have.
