What I Like

This is Peanut Butter Brickle. Oh, what a weekend at camp!

Who would have thought that there would be a campground for dogs and their persons?

Yes, this park is person friendly too.  But I suppose it would help if you like dogs….or love them.

There is a lot to do here at the campground.

Girl Person told me and Digby Pancake that it was a surprise for us, but I really think she wanted to come here more than anyone else. And that’s ok. She likes what she likes. And she likes dogs a lot.

We met many other dogs during our weekend. Some liked to play ball, some liked to play in the pond.

Some liked to shop in the store. Ok. That someone was me.

Sometimes, I think that Girl Person expects us to like certain things like a certain dog park or a certain trail. But sometimes we particularly don’t. Because we are particular. We are all particular though, aren’t we?

Imagine if someone told you what you had to like. Imagine if someone told you all the time what you should like to do. How would you feel? What if they just wanted you to like what they liked? Just because we are dogs doesn’t mean we don’t care.

We really do care. Do you notice that?

What Girl Person expected us to like the most here was not what we in fact liked the most. And to her, it was eye opening. It made her understand that she was putting expectations on us to make her happy.

And she wondered if she was doing that to persons too. It’s easy to get caught up in life and not see how we are truly treating others.

Giving others a chance to be who they are may not be what’s easy.

Especially for ones in our family, we have to let them be who they are even if that means we are different.

Being at a campground for dogs has been fun! We’ve met lots of nice people and friends.

And one of the best things about it was that we got to choose what we wanted to do, where we wanted to go. We got to be who we wanted to be. And isn’t that what we all deserve?

Stay tuned for our plans this week!

Can You Be Friends With A Butterfly?

This is Digby Pancake. A true friend is special. A true friend is someone you can count on. A true friend is rare. But I found that in a butterfly.

 

I know what you’re thinking. You’re asking, “can you be friends with a butterfly?” How is that possible? You can’t talk out loud to a butterfly. Or can you?

You can’t go places with a butterfly. Or can you?

You can’t have sleepovers with a butterfly. Or can you?

 

And you definitely can’t count on a butterfly as a friend. Or can you?

I may have wondered these same questions. Yes. Yes. I wonder such things. But sometimes, the answer to the questions you ponder and can find no answers for, answer themselves.

As we were laying in our campground yard, Girl Person was watching a butterfly. The butterfly would fly and then land on her finger.

The butterfly would fly and then land on her shoulder. Then it landed on her finger again.

Girl Person talked to the butterfly. So that answered that question of if you can talk to a butterfly.

Then Girl Person carried the butterfly with her around the campsite on her shoulder. The butterfly seemed quite content to go places. Yep. That answered that.

Then, as Brickle was napping, the butterfly napped with him on his fur. I guess you can have sleepovers. That answered that.

So the last question I had was if you could count on a butterfly. I wondered what we would be counting on a butterfly for. We couldn’t count on a butterfly for advice or help. But we could count on a butterfly to be a butterfly.

And really, isn’t that the only thing we should count on anyone for? To be themselves. If we are always out to be friends with someone that can help us, or do something for us, we miss the point. We have to count on no one but ourselves and let others be the special friends they are.

The butterfly added to our day just by being there. And that’s all we needed. Ok. I needed another pancake, but I’m eating healthy this week anyways.

 

So let others be your friends by the beauty they can add to your day just by being themselves.

Imagine how many friends we can truly have.
