Annie of McGuffy’s Reader is hosting Sparks, an inspirational and positive thought for the week link-up, every Monday.

“The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive. Social media has become a part of this dark, negative storm. There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change.” ~ McGuffy Ann Morris

β€œDogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.” Milan Kundera

    I will share this with Stella and Kenzie as I hang out with them. I am so very happy to have them. Both are Sheltie rescues. Stella is almost 8; we got her in 2013. Kenzie is almost 11; we got her in 2016. We were dog-less for 11 months 2012-2013. I cried every day. I have at least one dog from age 10 until we lost Polly in 2012. Stella was meant to be our dog. She is awesome. Kenzie needed us and is finally a happy dog, too. Big hugs, dear friend.

    So beautiful and I look forward to the day that our puppy dog can sit in peace on a hillside – she's still a little bit hyper. I'm sitting peacefully with Princess Cookie Cat who is an expert at meditation.
    Have a good week.:)

    I haven't looked at such a simple thing as this to make such a connection yet reading the words ring true. Wouldn't it be nice if all could live in Eden for a moment with a fur-pal? Have a sparkletastic week and thanks for dropping by, my friend! PS: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here! πŸ™‚

    Granny's doggie was her best teacher to find her way to Eden. She left our planet when she was almost 18 years, knowing that Granny was able to do it all by herself now🐢❀ Beautiful quote❀ Pawkisses for a Happy Day😽❀😻

    Puppers are always sparks of inspiration…and comfort. I can't imagine a life without one. We have an 8 month old pupper now and he's shaping up to be a great companion.
