Gratitude

Statue of Mary outside of a church.

Today I had to go to the dentist for a broken tooth.  I am grateful that it was only a stress fracture and easy to correct.  I am also grateful that my dentist is still in business and able to help patients. As a bonus, I got to tell some people about my paintings and hand out a few cards.  That was nice.

I know my gratitude is self-centered, but at least I am trying.

Her day may have been nice, but mine sucked.  During the part of the evening where I like to bark insanely at top volume, I found myself with a training collar strapped to my neck!!  When I barked, Mom yelled, “Quiet” and made the collar beep.  This happened twice.  I was so upset that I threw myself into my kennel and stayed there.  Harrumph.  If I can’t bark, I don’t even want to look out the door.

Don’t look at me.  I’m unhappy.

    Cooper is sympathizing with you! He is outraged at the “abuse” you are dealing with. 😮
    But, I (Cooper’s mom) understands what your mom is going through.
    Dude, you can’t be a barkin’ all the time!
    PATS and RUBS!!! 🙂

    Dear Toby’s Mom,
    So sorry to hear about your tooth. But SO glad it got fixed! 🙂
    And how cool that you could share about your paintings! I hope some great opportunities come from this! And never feel bad about taking care of yourself! And it’s good to be grateful for the good things that happened to you! 🙂
