Dogs On Thursday: I am complex....

Perhaps it is time that I correct some misconceptions about myself this week. First off, I am much more than just a pretty face that rules with an iron paw....
There are many layers, some of them not visible to the eye. My intellectual depth is greater than many of my four-legged peers. Most every day, I take the time to gain knowledge through television viewing. Yeah, yeah, I've heard the criticisms of late; that it turns the brain to mush, but I must disagree with this view....there is much to be learned about our two-legged servants from this media box.
Cleansing of the mind and smell therapy- which is 'relaxation through smell' can be attained through daily strolls lasting all of five invigorating minutes on the sidewalk. Exercise is a must! I find, as a bonus, that it boosts best buddy's self-esteem to provide these moments for moi!
These glorious strolls enhance quality rest as well.
Tonight, I struck a magnificent, if not majestic pose near BigBoy as he worked on his laptop. Then, suddenly, I was just as quickly struck with fatigue and managed this pose for mom just before lying down on the couch. It has been an average week for me, IF one could ever consider my life average. Don't settle for the average, canine friends. Don't just stop and smell the roses, for heaven's sake - SMELL EVERYTHING! Now go forth and lead your life with your nose Snuffles, Annie, Luna, Emma, Penny, Tonka, Presley, Friday, Dizzy and all you other canines! (Caution! Pay NO attention to that 'lapis-eyed' cat's words on the top right corner in the right column.......I will chase him tomorrow!)
