Rainy/Snowy Day – Still A Wonderful Day

There are a few things I truly dislike, and one of those happens to be rainy/snowy days like the one we had today in Maryland.  I always tell my girlfriend, “I hate this kind of weather,” but to my surprise this was one of the few times I did not feel like that.

I looked at Alex, who seemed to be enjoying her bed rest, and I was grateful for having her in my life and for all the laughter and joy she brings to my pack.

I, then, took a look at Walter, my current walking partner and saw how content he was just hanging out in the kitchen with us.  I think he believes he was helping with dinner and to be honest, who am I to tell him otherwise, right?

Cynthia, as always, was busy cooking something very delicious: chicken breast.  Ok., now I am really grateful.  Why?  She always cooks delicious meals.  I hate to cook.

Walter decided that patrolling the kitchen for “intruders” would be better than just watching Cynthia cook.

After patrolling the kitchen, Walter got a little tired and decided to take a break in the dining room.  Walter is a great sous chef, walking partner and guard dog.  He barks at anything and anybody he believes to be a threat.  Australian Shepherds are working dogs with a strong herding and guarding instincts.  Walter fits that profile, but he is also amazingly sweet and loves hugs.  With all these amazing beings around me, how can I not be happy and grateful for having them in my life?  Yes, even a rainy/snowy day can be a wonderful day.  It all depends on how you look at it.
