We all need a lil {paw}sitivity in our lives

What do the majority of people do when they see a dog?..

Daisy the happy houndyTHEY SMILE! So why do you think we do that – smile? What draws us to dogs? What is so darn special about a dog?

In my opinion, it is because the positivity that a dog is constantly giving off! They are always happy to see you. They don’t care if you’re homeless or make six-figures.  They don’t care what color skin you have or who you believe in. A dog sees a person as is… no judgement, no bias. And that’s why we’re so drawn to them.

What inspired me to write about this, is this awesome blog that I came across, The Adventures of Bella and her Friends. Behind this blog is a gorgeous, black Greyhound named Bella that uses poetry to tell her story or adventure. One poem in particular really stood out to me:

“What is A Smile?”

We all will have a bad day
If only now and then,
(I must have had a couple,
Though I can’t remember when.)

I am a happy houndy
My life is pretty good
I have a home and family
Like every houndy should.

For those who aren’t so lucky
I feel we could do more
I cannot change the world that much,
Stop wars or feed the poor.

A houndy has no money
So cannot help that way,
But I can try to make you smile
And brighten up your day.

A smile is always welcomed
A kindly word or two,
Costs nothing to deliver
And it isn’t hard to do.

And what is even better,
A smile can be returned!
You get back what you’ve given
With profit, I have learned!

It may not make much difference
The problems are still there
But one small act of kindness
Will show them that you care.

And that is worth the effort,
That moment when they smile
To make their world a better place
If only for a while.

-Bella

I could read this poem over and over again and it will forever leave a smile on my face and warmth in my heart. Not only “houndys” have the opportunity to make a person smile. YOU, also, have the opportunity to make someone smile EVERYDAY! So spread love as generously as if you were a dog – they make pretty good examples.

Thanks again for the inspiration, The Adventures of Bella and her Friends.

Much ruv,

Kristen
