Thought for the day…..

Alvin and I have a regular morning routine up until the past couple of days.

I am not certain just how it changed but it has.

This morning after Alvin had his breakfast and as I was sitting down to do my morning writing at the kitchen table ….

Mr. Alvin stood on the floor by me and barked.  If I got up he ran away.  I knew exactly what he wanted but he didn’t know quite how to ask.

So after a bit of back and forth.  We figured it out.

I said “want up” and he jumped up putting his front paws on my lap.

So I reached down and picked him up.

Now anyone who knows Alvin or has seen him …. knows that he is really not a lap dog.

But Alvin wanted up and that’s what he got.  (no, he is not spoiled).  LOL

He was breathing hard as he was nervous …. funny as he was the one that had wanted up.

I guess he figured he was missing out on something.  What, I am not sure.

At one point I had to switch and write with my right hand as he was resting his head on my left arm.

But I decided it was more important to cuddle and just have some totally quiet moments …

So the pen went down and we just sat there …. Alvin resting his head on the crook of my left arm … and his Momma beaming from ear to ear.

I love my Alvin.  We are a good pair.

So we have a new morning ritual.

I love it.  I felt so calm and relaxed.  Good, actually great way to start the day.

I highly recommend it.  Whether it be your dog, cat or your child…or just you.

Just sit and breathe.

Gotta go.

Special Hello: TO REGINA ….. I miss you guys.  Hope you are having a great October.

Always, Carol
