I'm not even sure why Mylo likes me. Yes I feed her but I almost never walk her in the winter. I try to be sure her water dish is always full but I don't play with her that often. So what's in it for her? She just seems to want to be with me which is hard to understand when I don't even want to be with me!
According to the chinese zodiac, I was born in the year of the metal dog perhaps that's why I have such a strong affinity with my doggie. I do feel like I live up to the characteristics of a metal dog ~ faithful, sincere and giving; a loyal companion; yet, can be judgmental, defensive and holds a grudge. I've often been told that I need to soften around the edges. I think that's a fair comment.
When life feels hard, it sure feels good to have this loyal companion around. She's a cockapoo but she doesn't have the hyperactivity of a poodle, at all. I feel her calmness and acceptance of me. She certainly never judges or holds a grudge. She appears to go with the flow. She seems to be okay with me just the way I am. I wonder what the world looks like through her eyes? I wonder what it would feel like to live life as a dog, even just for one day?
My objective in this blog is to learn to appreciate the world around me and as I do that I'm hoping that I will become a kinder, gentler version of me. I'd like to be calmer, "softer around the edges" I guess you could say.
