An extraordinary tribute to the bond between dogs and their people.
My family’s dogs were a big part of my life when I was a little girl. I learned to stand, clutching fistfuls of fur and hauling myself upright against our German Shepherd Nikki, who bore my maulings good naturedly. I created miniature worlds between his paws as I sat and played, marching little animals across his shoulders… He also taught me my first adult lessons in grief… Returning home from school to find him gone, it broke my heart, but I thank him for his gentle love and guidance.

Check out this video!
I hope today finds you doing extraordinarily well!
As we prepare to embark on a new week, I thought it would be nice to shift our focus toward something fun! Therefore, I decided to share a video that does a magnificent job of shattering stereotypes related to gender, age and race. More importantly, it accomplishes this goal in a delightful, charming, pleasant and gut-busting manner 🙂
Before I proceed, let me acknowledge that this little gem has been circulating for a few years, so there is a good chance that you’ve already seen it. But, in light of both national and international events, I’d urge you to watch it again; I can assure you, it will bring a touch of light your way.
Please enjoy watching this 70 year old white dude dance circles around these sistas!
Mind you, this is NOT my video; I found it on Youtube. But…
