A DOGS LIFE

 A Dog's Life, Guest Post By Jeff
 It is for everyone . I have used the phrase, "It's a dogs life," in both a humorous way and in a derogatory context. Our family has a dog named Cottonball. With a cell phone in my hand almost 24/7 I have access to my cell camera in a touch of a screen. One afternoon I caught one of those “Kodak” moments (I think I have just aged myself; oops) with the dog looking so cute. I was lucky enough to snap it without him moving and altering the shot I desired. Several months later I was on vacation and being a picture taking person I noticed something very similar between the subjects in my pictures and that cute “Dog’s Life” moment with my cell phone camera picture. Both showed stretched out objects enjoying a relaxing day in the sun.
Being able to rest and relax, enjoy the sun, and just take a timeout is not only good for your physical well being but it provides for a renewing of our mental health too. Stress in life appears as a daily factor with little harm once we adjust to certain levels of it. The fact is stress in even moderate amounts can have long lasting effects over time. While watching the masses soak up the sun on beach towels and small lounge chairs I could not help but wonder what it would sound like if the stress being relieved made escaping sounds. It also brought my mind back to our dog that seems to have the “Dogs Life” rest and relaxation habit down pat. It appears when the sun is out many people seemed to find a way to relax.
Perhaps we would all live longer following a “Dog’s Life” behavior pattern. Or at the very least utilizing more time in a relaxing mode rather than feeling like the stress we face is manageable. I wonder if dogs would like us to join them more or would it stress them out? LOL Finding the balance between normal stress and getting some relax and unwind time on a daily basis is a routine we need to learn from our pets.

  1. Thanks for the tip ! I love this little cottonball and just looking at him relaxes me.

    Balance in life is what we really need and I think that is why I stay sane after all the years of crazy work, school schedules !
