One of the great things about having my 6-month-old puppy Bodhi in my life is that she loves to play and so I take play breaks throughout the day. In our play time she frequently smiles at me. I had no idea that dogs actually do smile, for real. It’s not a joke, they smile.

I don’t know if dogs learned to mimic people, but Bodhi is definitely smiling at me. Of course, nothing beats a waggy tail. That spontaneous, uncontrollable tail tells us so much!

Throughout our days, Bodhi’s reactions and choices remind me to laugh and that is such a gift.

There are times when I’m very aware that I could find some of her choices annoying or even upsetting, but I just don’t wish to make her wrong for anything. I’d rather teach her what is preferred than focus on what she’s doing that I wish she wouldn’t. Like digging holes in the yard.

Bodhi loves to play in mud puddles and she loves to dig holes, preferably muddy holes. She LOVES the smell of the earth. I swear, it’s like some kind of a drug to her!

Yesterday, I was walking her and one minute she was so beautiful and clean and the next moment she was muddy and dirty.

I sigh and then I remember to laugh.

She does clean up very easily and there’s hardly a day that goes by when she doesn’t get dirty.

How wonderful that Spirit sent me a mighty companion to help me remember to laugh!

What a precious pup!
