It is good to give thanks for the blessings we have been given. I know it isn’t Thanksgiving day but I really can’t wait to express my thankfulness for one of the small things in life.
When it has rained and the back yard is a little muddy, I take the dog for a walk so she can do her business rather than let her out in the back yard where her paws will get muddy and she will track mud in on the carpet. I still haven’t managed to teach her to wipe her paws when she comes in.
Finding the right spot to poop on can be a difficult decision. We walk for blocks while she inspects each spot. Many spots have to be rejected because they just don’t meet the exact needs of the dog. Although I really don’t understand exactly what the dog has to consider when it comes to choosing the ideal spot, I know that she understands what things have to be considered. I think it has a lot to do with smell. Since I don/t have a dogs sense of smell, I really don’t understand her difficult decision. My poor dog has to hold it until the proper spot is found.
I have been blessed with the invention of the bathroom. When I need to go, the spot has been selected for me. I don’t face a long and difficult decision. Although modern technology has given us many fantastic inventions, I still feel that the bathroom is one of the greatest inventions of man.
