MY DOG LIVES INTUITIVELY

Happy Friday, friends!  Did this week completely zoom by, or was it just me?  I swear it was Monday like five minutes ago! photo 4Silly title, right?  Well, the more time I spend with my pup Charlie (AKA the best dog companion friend in the world), the more I realize that he is so freaking smart.  Yes, I know most dog owners say that about their canine, but really, IT'S TRUE!  HA!  In fact, I think dog's in general are so intuitive, and today I am here to share why!

Sure, he eat's to live, but he most certainly does not live to eat.  Charlie enjoys his food, and eats calmly.  He won't try to impress us, beg, or anything else, and only eats when his body alerts him to.  Also, he knows what he likes, and what he doesn't like, and doesn't eat food just because it is there.  Such an intuitive eater!

Charlie LOVES to go on walks!  He enjoys the fresh air, is always on the lookout for other dogs and squirrels, and when he is done, HE'S DONE!

We don't know how Charlie ended up at the Humane Society, but it's hard to believe how anyone could let him go (or any animal for that matter).  He has clearly done some forgiveness work, because when Charlie is with us, he is 100% in the moment.  We're simply grateful for his journey, because it allowed us all to be together.

photo 3ABOVE ALL ELSE, HE VALUES LOVE

This snuggle monster is such a lover!  His favorite thing in the world is to be with Greg and I (side note: I swear I have photos of Greg and Charlie, but they are either blurry or not wanting to upload), either on the couch, in the car, on a walk, etc.  At first I thought it was abandonment issues, and it very well may be, but then I realized that he just really adores us.  The feeling is obviously mutual.  :)

Have a fantastic weekend!

P.S. Wasn't this a great reason to share a ton of photos of him?!  HA!
