My New Year’s Resolutions

Silly!  Dogs don’t have New Year’s resolutions!  We live in the moment.  We don’t regret the past.  We don’t hope to do better.  We know we are always doing our best.

 We do anticipate good things, though, especially tummy rubs, ear scratches, catching balls and food, food, food.

 So, I am anticipating:

more tummy rubs, more naps, more running in the neighborhood and getting to know Other Dogs, more games of catch, and lots more food!  Maybe even gravy!  Or eggs!  who knows!

I am anticipating a little lefse or toast if mom will just leave them out by mistake sometime.

I am anticipating rides in the car.

I am anticipating visits from The Boys.

What are you anticipating?

    Oh, Scout, I love your blog and your non-resolutions. My dog, Sandy, went on a hike with me today (New Year’s Day) on one of my favorite trails. She got to sniff and sniff and meet other dogs and wade in a mountain stream.

    We are so happy because just 10 days ago she couldn’t even stand up. Hooray for dog walks!

  6. scoutdog Says:

    hurrah and yippee for Sandy! and lots of dog howls too! I wish I go hiking with Sandy. I like to wad in streams, too, almost as much as playing in the snow!

    thanks for visiting!

    well, fran, I hope I do not disappoint you. I’ll tell you, it’s not so easy getting computer time, though. My mom thinks she has interesting things to say, too. pretty soon she’ll figure out that I’m the best one.

    Good blogging, Scout!
    I anticipate going to church a lot in 2008. I also think I will go to the dog salon soon. And I expect I will get lots of treats!! Hope you will, too.
