The Dozer

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Have you ever felt knocked down? Have you ever felt that you couldn’t get up? Have you ever felt pushed aside? I know you have. And I get it. Things haven’t been peachy keen around here lately.

Sometimes, doesn’t it seem like problems follow you around? This week, it seems that everywhere we go at camp, this mad Dozer thing keeps following us!

We go to the lake, there it is. We go to the beach, there it is. Everywhere. It is quite annoying.

If I was a gambling man, I would bet a dozen peanut butter cookies that this thing is trying to ruin my peace and quiet.

Girl Person says that dozers push stuff around. Make stuff flat. Generally, they are loud. And overbearing! Enough to get them arrested.

I’m sure that the Dozer is just trying to do his job of making things flat.

But we had to be very careful not to get hurt as it kept driving by us. We could have been hit by rocks or worse. Even the sound was enough to make us run away. And isn’t that what we should do with negative things that try to get us? But why do so many not run, but go to the negativity? Maybe they don’t recognize what they are doing. Even I had to stop and think about this.

Because everything we see, hear and feel in our day affects us in some way. Bad news, arguments, problems…all of that. Do we need to protect our peace of mind more so that it doesn’t get ran over? We have to get into our own groove some days. Stay in our lane.

We can’t help anyone if we are ran into the ground. So protect your happy. Look out for the dozers. But keep on walking. When others try to bring you down, hold your head up.

When you see a Dozer, appreciate what it’s there for. To remind you to make your own path to happiness. You can do it! Today’s assignment is to recognize the things that stand in your way to spending more quality time with your dog. Others may tell you it’s not important. That your dog doesn’t care. But I’m here to tell you, and so is Digby, that we do care. We do notice.

You should feel good that someone wants to be with you as much as your dog loves you. So what changes can you make? What can you push aside today to make it happen?

Islands In The Stream

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. Have you ever wanted to take a ride to an island? So you could be all alone? Maybe soak up some sun. Maybe fry up some coconut pancakes on the beach. Maybe just escape for awhile?

Yeah. We all feel like that sometimes. But all you need to do is take a normal walk with me and Brickle. You’ll feel like you are an island. In the stream.

You see, every time we go for a walk, I have to stop and smell the smells. Then Brickle has to stop and smell the smells. We may smell the same thing. Or it could be different. However, we usually aren’t watching the other, and when we water what we are smelling, well…sometimes our heads get watered too. It’s a very strong stream.

As you can guess, the persons are never thrilled with this. They aren’t thrilled our heads are stained. They aren’t thrilled that we smell a little spicy. They aren’t thrilled that it is more than likely to occur a few more times on the walk. We may be our own dogs. Different in personality. Different likes and dislikes. We may be islands. But we are both in the stream.

Life is funny. Things that used to bother the persons and stress them out like the stream sure seem more comical now. We have mastered the art of synchronized peeing. Now we have to show the persons how to master going with the flow.

I promised you assignments for every day this week. Today’s assignment is to stop and think for a moment what your dog does that tries your patience. Are they an island too? Maybe they bark too much. Maybe they steal your pizzas. Maybe I just do that.

Whatever that quirky irritation is, your assignment is to stop and view it as how your dog sees it. Does your dog really care about that “no barking” rule someone made up? Does your dog care he tracked mud in the door when he was just walking outside? Is it your dog’s fault when your dog is being a dog?

You see, persons think the rules they impose on all living things are important. But what makes the things you want more important than another individual being who they are? That’s. Not. Fair.

If you were a dog, would you care about being an island in the stream? No. You would probably just brush it off. So today, your assignment is to view things like a dog. Lighten up. But try not to get wet.
