  • …On Feeling Grateful and Delivering the Goods to Frankie’s Forever Home

    from Joyful Paws

    Friday March 27th, 2015 at 11:56 AM

    Sometimes I swear there is a bit of Frankies spirit in the my pint-sized little Gidget. Its hard to explain, but its just a certain feeling that comes over me once and awhile like it did today.

    Bookworm Gardens where Frankies statue likeness resides ordered more Frankie the Walk N Roll Dogbooks to have available for their season opening May 1st. This will be their 5th season! Miss Gidget was my helper today as we hopped in the car to make the 20-minute drive east to drop them off where they...

  • Wednesdays with the Wisdom of Dog: Simplicity

    from Joyful Paws

    Wednesday March 25th, 2015 at 09:59 AM

    I picture Snoopy when I think of simplicity. His little stick with a bandana tied to the end forming a sack with just his few belongings likely just his dog bowls and some food and perhaps a bit of bird seed for his sidekick Woodstock.

    He could go anywhere, really explore the world with just a few basic needs.

    For many years now Ive been trying to simplify my life. Unloading stuff that is no longer necessary many of which were really never necessary to begin with. But at the time I just felt...

  • Message from Sparrow – Hang On.

    Oh spring, where have you gone?

    Hey, little sparrow, do you know where spring is?

    Spring is always in your heart dear one.

    You must continue through your day as if.

    As if it is here. It never left. This is what spring is.

    A tease of what can be and what will be.

    Live in the warm abundance offaith that springis already here.

    Continue to prepare for new things to come so you can wrap your arms around her with the deepest of gratefulness when she peeks in again.

    Each day that unfolds brings us closer to...

  • Welcome to the World Little Blossom

    from Joyful Paws

    Saturday March 21st, 2015 at 11:14 AM

    Just as if I was cooing to a new little puppy, I said, Oh, sweet little blossom. Welcome to the world. Welcome!

    Maybe it was Mother Nature that whispered to this last bud of my orchid that had not yet opened its petals and said, Hey Spring has arrived. Come see!

    She was late in opening, but what a gift it was this morning to see her delicate, soft petals, open to the sun beaming through the window. As if she had stretched and yawned from a long, winters nap.

    A new born blossom, right here in my...

  • Some Inspiration for First Day of Spring

    from Joyful Paws

    Friday March 20th, 2015 at 08:45 AM

    Happy first day of spring!

    I thought Id share the card I chose today from my deck of cards by Dr. Wayne Dyer, Inspiration.

    This is one of my (almost) daily rituals, choosing a card from my many decks I love. They always start my day off on the right foot, make me ponder, give thanks, or smile.

    Focus on Peace and Love

    Anticipate a world at peace. Expect health, abundance, and love in your life and in the lives of all others. Know that every act of apparent evil, there are a million acts of...

    My sister, Paula and I first day of school (just a few wee years ago!)

    Something is bothering me.

    I need to get it off my chest.

    Yesterday my sister, Paula shared a post on her Facebook page about someone she had run into who asked her what she is doing these days.

    She told them that she recently became a nanny.

    Their response? What a waste of your talent.

    It hurt me to read this. Of course, because I felt bad for Paula, but also becauseit hurt me on a personal level, too.

    Heres the thing. Just...

  • Wednesdays with the Wisdom of Dog: Patience

    from Joyful Paws

    Wednesday March 18th, 2015 at 09:41 AM

    Today as I was trying to do my final yoga cool down stretches, Miss Gidget was having nothing of it. She wanted to be pet. She kept pushing her head into my hands as I tried doing pigeon pose and my other stretches.

    So I gave up.

    Then as I tried to roll up my mat, she wouldnt budge. Id roll it a little ways and she reluctantly would only move an inch or two. Little by little I tried to roll up my yoga mat with this wee little dog trying everything to get my attention. Hey little one, I said....

  • Update on Friend’s Paralyzed Dog, Ladybird

    Julies daughter, Lyla playing with paints and helping Ladybird feel not alone.

    As promised, I said I would provide updates as I have them regarding my friend, Julies paralyzed 3-year old King Charles Spaniel, Miss Ladybird.

    It will be two weeks this Thursday since Ladybird had the surgery to remove two herniated discs in her back. While Ladybird has been on crate rest, she has also been doing some water therapy and acupuncture at the vet clinic, too.

    A very good sign is that she is able to potty...
