On this day it seems appropriate to reflect on our lives and consider all of our good fortune and offer our gratitude for those things. For myself, today I give thanks for my family, friends, dogs, health, job, and all those little moments of serendipity that are so easy to miss. It has been a little bit of a roller coaster today because one of the pups is sick, poor Hubert has been throwing up and I have had the dubious honor of being the cleanup crew. I am so happy that I decided to invest in a small commercial carpet extractor a number of years ago. While it is probably nearing the end of its life it has been worth every penny, especially on days like today when one of the dogs can't keep anything down. I suppose I should give thanks for having a great vet who is working normal hours tomorrow so I can get Hubert in first thing in the morning before I too have to go to work.
Below is sweet Johan who has been worrying over Hubert all day. He is always worried if I or one of the dogs doesn't feel well and I am sure he will worry even more tomorrow when Hubert and I leave together. Johan isn't the smartest boy but he is very loving which more than makes up for any of his shortcomings.
