New Year’s Resolutions

It’s that time of the year again! Every gym is advertising it’s New Year’s Resolutions discount, and every person is vowing that THIS year, they really are going to watch less TV/read more books/eat less chocolate/etc. And what is your dog doing? Just enjoying all the world has to offer! It’s so easy for us to think of THINGS that we want to HAVE or ACCOMPLISH, instead of WHO we want to be, and HOW we want to interact with the world around us. So this year, I encourage us all to take a hint from our local dog philosophers:

Get out of bed early. There’s so much to experience!

YAAAAAAAWWWWWWWNNNN

Test out that latest fashion craze you’ve been dying to try. Who cares what people say?

Wearing bandanas backwards is SO last season.

Spend some down time with your family.  They’ll always be there for you.

So much better than playing Scrabble.

Try looking at the world from a different angle. Turn your preconceptions upside-down!

Why are all the humans so tall today?

Don’t hesitate to ask for help when you’re in a tight spot. Everyone needs a little push sometimes.

Okay, stop laughing and pull me out.

Do whatever it takes to get the attention of that special someone. Waiting around just isn’t worth it.

Make sure you get enough quality girl time.

You like napping? I like napping.

Get into mischief. It builds character.

I solemnly swear I’m up to no good.

Figure out your own path. Sometimes sticking with the pack gets you nowhere.

It’s the basement, guys. Not Narnia.

Make time to be with yourself. You never know what you’ll find in your own head!

Hmm, my tail smells particularly tail-y today.

But don’t take yourself too seriously! Laugh at yourself! You are wonderful and capable, and your dog knows it. So take a hint from the pooch this new year, and joyfully enter 2015 with a smile on your face and adventure in your heart!

You say all these things, but I’m just thinking about cheese.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM BIG DOG WALKIN’!
