Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday, the 26th day of June 2013.

How are you this gorgeous morning?

I am doing great.

I have a short story to share with you all.

Last night when Alvin and I were out for our evening stroll we noticed a Momma Duck and four baby ducklings swimming on the lake.

They are so cute. ┬áMomma leading the way and the four little ones all in a straight line behind her ….. she wears the “pants” in that family.

Our lakes have all exceeded their “banks” so the three are now one big lake with lots of room for the ducks and geese and the muskrats.

Anyway, back to the story.

We came across this lady who was taking some photos of the ducks.

Alvin ran over (on his long leash) and started his “hello” ritual except this time ….

She bent over to give him a rub on the head and he kissed her several times ….. it was so cute.

She said “what a cute and friendly puppy?”.

I said “yes, he is very social.”

Then she asked his name and I told her …..

Then in his Alvin fashion he waggled his tail so fast I thought it was going to fall off.

Followed by he dropped to the grass and started rolling around.

Now he has never done this before ….. with one exception – actually two.

His dog girl friends …..

He would get up and grab some attention from “Kelly” and then back to rolling.

What a show he put on ….

We laughed so hard.

I said “boy, he really likes you”

She replied “oh, he just made my day …. my week.

That was one of the most fun walks we have ever enjoyed.

Between the ducks, Alvin’s show and meeting a new neighbour …. wow, it doesn’t get better than that.

Sometimes it is the small things that are the most important; in fact I would say most of the time that is the case.

So enjoy this Wednesday and I hope that an “Alvin” finds you and gives you some love and well deserved attention.

Take Care and thank you for reading my blog.

Special Hello: to my Dee and family who are coming to visit their “Auntie” (me) for the long weekend.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
