In My Life…I’ve Loved Them All

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Some days you wake up and wonder what is wrong with the world. You may see all of the bad in it, the things that make you sad.

Feeling kinda homesick today. #2travelingdogs

Sometimes, when it feels cold and foggy in our minds because of all the negative things, it is hard to remember the good days…and the good in the world. It kind of like how cold we have been lately here in New Mexico! It is hard to remember when there was ever a time we were warm in that Florida place.

There are places I’ll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain

When it seems like the bad overwhelms the good, it is easy to let the good get pushed aside. But. The good, and the good people are still there. We know this to be true. Yes, it seems simple, but for us, one conversation this morning was enough to make us remember.

As we were walking to the dog park at camp, we heard it. A man person talking to his dog. He was telling his dog what a good boy he was, and how he was going to have a great day. Girl Person told us that this man didn’t know we were there. He didn’t know anyone was listening. He simply loved his dog like he should…like everyone should. And Girl Person told us that she felt like all of a sudden, there were some good things still in front of us. There were some good people out there that deserved to be told thank you. Just for being…nice.

Should we thank people just for being nice? This was something that I wondered.

As we entered the dog park and played with Red the dog, Girl Person told his man person that she wanted to thank him for being such a good person to his dog. He didn’t know why she was thanking him, and he looked surprised.  Girl Person told him that his simple act of kindness changed our day.  And anything can change the way someone views their day, even changing their lives. It is overwhelming a bit, because that means that every thing we do matters, whether good or bad.  But think about the people who have come into your life…and maybe out of your life.  Did they all not play a part in who you became or how you viewed life?

Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

Yes, this man did deserve thanks, because if even for a moment that he came into our lives, it mattered.  Have you told the ones who you love thanks? Thanks for the little things, the simple things?  Have you come into someone’s life even for a brief moment and made a difference for them?  Can you make a difference to the next person?

You may not think that you deserve a thanks from us, but we will tell you that you most certainly do. We believe that the more people that set an example, not just to rescue, but to treat their furkids the way that they should be treated deserve to be thanked. Maybe you weren’t raised to value animals. Maybe you grew up poor, or went thru financial hard times and chose to feed your furkids instead of yourself. Maybe you didn’t treat animals as good as you should have at one time, but changed your ways and vowed to do better…and you are. Whatever the case, and whoever you are, we thank you. We thank you for being here. We thank you for trying.  We just thank you.  It is not easy to care.  It is easier NOT to.

Are you surprised when we tell YOU thanks today? Thank you for being someone that cares so much about your furkids and others that you read a dog blog every day. Thank you for caring to share and spread the word to “Make Rescues The Breed Of Choice”. Thank you for loving us. For caring about us. It is you that keeps US going every day. Did you know that?

In my life I’ve loved them all

Every day, the earth goes round.  Some of us may not be here tomorrow.  It is today that we have, and only today, to appreciate the ones that are here with us now.  Oh, how we would miss them if they were gone, like we miss ones who are no longer here.  In your life, every day counts.  Thank someone today.  Make a difference today.  Simply be nice today.  We thank you for that.
