Puppy Pick-me-up

Rough week? I have puppies for you:

Something that I really love about dogs and people is that they both seem to be naturally inclined towards one another. I often stop mid-sentence while I'm walking down the street to comment on (maybe pet) and definitely admire a good lookin' pup. I can't help but love them. 

And they can't help but love us. The unconditional love of a dog is truly remarkable to me. Sure, they can be dumb and sure, they might pee on your shoes sometimes. But they are ALWAYS happy to see you, they greet you with a smile, and they have lots of snuggles and kisses to eagerly share.

I don't know where you are in your life right now, but sometimes life can be pretty overwhelming.

Take some time to breathe. Calm down. Life can be really hard, and you deserve some rest.

Release some of that built up tension or anxiety. And just enjoy the cuteness.

And of course, what kind of dog mom would I be if I didn't include at least 8 photos of my own sweet puppy?!? Here's my Morton. He is such a sweetheart. Yeah, he frustrates the junk out of me sometimes, but he's so cute and loving. I can't stay mad long. 

I love having a dog. It can be really hard in the city sometimes, but it is so worth it. He mitigates so much tension and anxiety in my household. And he brings about lots of laughter between Matt and I. 

Lately, he's been trying to impress our houseguests by chasing (and catching) his own tail. Not gonna lie, I'm impressed.
