The Adventures of a New York City Dog
Absolutely, especially a sunny bench with pretty flowers near by.Your pal, Pip
We don't get alot of that "sun" out here in the Pacific Northwest, but I totally get that "take a moment to savor and look around" thing. Momma says the Italians have a phrase for it: il dolce far niente (or something like that--I'm a dog, what do I know)... meaning "the sweetness of doing nothing". Thank you, Wendy for sharing Abbey's lessons. She was one wise gal!~ Rex & Momma
Abby sure knew what she was talking about!!!
Oops, Abbey not Abby.
I'm so so sorry for your loss. I remember when my Pal died -- just two weeks after being totally fine and in great health for a 13 y/o -- I wrote out some of his life lessons for myself just like this. It seemed kind of silly but it also helped :)
Woof! Woof! Absolutely. Have done that many times. Looking forward to read more of Abbey's Life Lesson ... so far I have done all 3. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
Abbey's life lessons are so very true. This one sounds like a great idea! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly
Oh great lesson - we will look for a bench (lots of those) with flowers around (not many of those anymore this fall, but we'll try! thanks you so much for sharing!Big Hugs xoxoSammie and Avalon
My brilliant, sweet Abbey girl. I couldn't agree more...
So true. And what a great photo!
Ah yes! Let's remember. Will remember. Blessings.Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,Sierra Rose
Abbey is one of the smartest dogs I know!
Just like Abbey, I love hanging in the park with the warmth of the sun on my back. We dogs teach people to slow down and savour the moment; the joy of small things like a park bench surrounded by flowers and the sound of the ice cream truck coming.
That is a face that warms the heart. And a great life lesson - although I keep failing at the sit part...can I hippity hop on the bench?Ben and the Fellas
Ah, so simple and yet one of the hardest lessons any of us can learn. It seems my boy Duncan has taught me this lesson a hundred times but only smiles patiently as I try to absorb it yet again. Our entire culture seems designed in the opposite direction so it's understandable we'd forget. I hope you've had some time to sit on a bench and watch the world be the world. It does wonders for the spirit.
I'm all about doing nothing, but my Moms tend to feel guilty if they aren't doing something productive. I guess that's exactly what Abbey was barking about, huh?lotsa licks, Lola
This is my favorite one yet! Sam
Wonderful lesson. Abbey was so wise.Kisses,Emma Rose
