A Letter to My Dog


Dear Lila,

I am glad that you are a part of our family, and that you are here to remind us of what should not be forgotten. Sometimes humans get so busy, and we forget about simple things that bring a smile into our days and into our lives. You are always happy to remind us that it is a good idea to:

  • Keep an eye on members of your pack when you are out and about;
  • When you haven’t seen those members of your pack for a long while or a little while, be sure to greet them like you haven’t seen them for a very long time;
  • Show your pack how much you love them;
  • Try to make friends wherever you are;
  • Spend time outdoors and appreciate the beauty of the day;
  • Learn new things;
  • Make time to play;
  • Run as fast as you can when you can;
  • Do silly things that make humans laugh;
  • Stretch out your muscles;
  • Enjoy getting your back scratched; and
  • Be thankful for our food and our home.

Thanks for not letting us forget!

  1. Just getting reacquainted with life with a dog, I can fully appreciate this.

    You forgot the part about eating heat vent covers and DVDs, though. Apparently those are important activities too.

  2. I love dogs, and Lila looks so sweet! We just got our fluffy muffin, Chuck, groomed this weekend and he’s so soft and silky I can’t stop petting him. I think he’s had enough of me for awhile!
