The Love of a Good Dog

The love of a good dog is forever. In January as some of you will recall, we lost our 16 year old lab Mia. Mia was my constant side kick for a decade and a half and a beloved part of our family..

I worked at home for most of those years and we spent every day together. The thought of another dog has not been something we were entertaining…at least not yet. Losing Mia was devastating. I wasn’t sure I was ready to give that much love to another dog.

For my birthday, my wife and daughter surprised me with the gift of a new puppy. I was thrilled, shocked, and have wondered how I’ll be with this new dog? How will we make her life unique and not constantly living in Mia’s shadow?

We’ve waited more than a month . This Saturday we finally get to bring Harper home. She’s a weimardoodle.

I still don’t have answers to my questions about how Harper will make her way into our heart, as Mia did. There is no replacing Mia or the flood of happy memories she left in her wake.

However, i know this. We are,, I am ready to make new memories with this beautiful little girl. Fifteen years from now, I know she too will have contributed to the richness of our lives.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesone!

I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
