Happy 14,154 (that’s 2022 in Dog Years)!
If you’re having trouble deciding what New Year’s resolutions will make the year ahead your very best yet, look to the purest, most innocent soul you know for inspiration!
If your dog wrote your New Year’s resolutions for 2022 what would they be?
1. I resolve to keep snacking. I know there is a lot of evidence that dogs are overweight. But let’s face it. Yours truly is not interested in getting into a bikini any time soon.
2. Exercise is overrated. Sleep is in. I’m calling on all of you to restore nap time to its rightful place. Just think how much better the world would be if everyone took a nap (or more than one) during the day!
3. Relax. You humans take everything so seriously. Do you see me worrying about taxes or inflation? No! The only thing I care about is someone to fill my bowl with yummy food and dish out the belly rubs. Did you ever think that if we took the heads of Congress, lay them on their backs, and gave them belly rubs, the world would be a better place? Seriously, name one issue that can’t be solved with a belly rub.
4. Train my dog parent better. So far, he does a passable job. He buys me healthy nourishing food. He never feeds me treats made in China. But I’m like the only one in the family without his own Apple Watch or iPad. How do I tell him I do a better job of sharing than his kids do? When I get a tennis ball, do I keep it for myself? No. I share it. I let the human throw it over, and over, and over, and over again. To this day, not one person has offered me their iPad so I can watch Animal Planet or squirrel videos on YouTube.
5. Give more love. We live in a love-deprived world. People do stupid things. And we dogs just look at humans and tilt our heads. If humans did a better job giving hugs, licks, and snuggles the world would be a better place.
Now someone give me a snack, okay?
