365 Reasons to Smile – Day 39
My German Shepherd, Rodney, has unbounded enthusiasm for life, and he get particularly excited when he thinks he’s going for a ride in the car. He starts whining as soon as I pick up my car keys, and when I grab the leash, he can no longer contain himself.
He jumps into the Jeep, sits up expectantly and takes great pleasure in sticking his nose out the window.
He acts just as enthusiastic when I pull back into our driveway.
As soon as the engine turns off, he starts barking. When his door opens, he leaps out and jumps in circles.
No matter where he is, he is happy as long he is with someone he loves.
There’s a great deal to be said for always being content with where you are and always excited about where you are going.
And that always makes me smile.
