Today, today according to my adoption paper from Bullseye Rescue I am 3 years old. In honor of all those at Bullseye Rescue who cared for me, and Miss Lydia (the See Beautiful original herself) who found me on the streets of Atlanta and took me in, and piolet Charlie who flew my momma to Atlanta to bring me to my forever and ever home I raise a doggie beer to you all. Without them I would not know how sweet being 3 could be.
Come join me my friends as I celebrate this beautiful life I now have.
For weeks and weeks we were inundated with feet and feet of snow. Then this past week we had unseasonable warm weather and lots of that snow melted and we had days and days of rain, so now some flooding has started. But does that stop me and my best pal, Bert, from taking our humans out in the wet to have fun? Nope.
For safety reasons however instead of walking along the West side of the river where there are lots of access to the river, which is overflowing it's banks, momma took us on the East side at The Fort where access is not so easy. But as you can see even the channels and small streams were overflowing, but at least they were not running as fast and deep as the river.
Bert has made up a new game to play with me and he thinks it is so funny. In the video below you will see him teasing me with a piece of wood. He runs with it in his mouth, stops, shakes his butt at me, looking over his shoulder just taunting me to take it and when I swoop in to get it he takes off then does it all over again.
I will admit it is a lot of fun! And as you saw I got it in the end.
Oh you know it's See Beautiful time hosted by the EVER beautiful Sugar. Seeing beautiful isn't hard. My goodness it is all around, even when it seems at time the world is a dark place. I see beautiful all the time, even in the simplest of things.
Like this for example.
This is me the other night. I was sooooo tired after a day of playing with my pal Bert and hiking with my momma. It was a totally beautiful day, but it tuckered me out completely. My momma had some work to do after we got home. So after she gathered up the stuff she needed and came back into the living room I was sacked out on the couch, not leaving her room to sit. She called my name a few times but the only response I could give was a slight wag of the tail, then I would fall back to sleep. What is so beautiful about that you might ask.
This! That's my momma on my way cool doggie bed. Instead of making me move, or picking me up and moving me, she instead let me get my rest and she moved to my doggie bed. Some may think that is silly, but I think it is beautiful. She gave up her comfort on the couch to do her work to moving to my bed so not to disturb me. Don't get me wrong my doggie bed is really comfortable, but it was a bit of an inconvenience for her. That's love my friends. And my momma loves me to the moon and beyond and back. Sometimes in life we have to be inconvenienced or maybe a little uncomfortable to let others have what they need. Thinking of others is Seeing Beautiful.
