Fantastic Day!

Saturday, September 12, 2009

Today my Hubby and I did our weekly grocery shopping. We didn't need a whole lot, and decided to head out to Walmart. We grabbed some veggies, and a few other things in the cold section. As we were walking to the other side of the store, I noticed a guide dog. A white Labrador Retriever. Oh what a cutie. I also noticed a young girl, probably in her early twenties, was the owner of the dog. I walked up, and asked if I could pet her dog. She was thrilled. "Let me take off her harness first", so I waited. Then the dog came up to me, so glad to have made a new friend. I commented on how I love the dog's color. (I was just chatting about a white Lab with a spark friend of mine) She joked how her hair was the same color as the dog. This young lady was Albino, and had the prettiest long hair, with beautiful shiny eyes. And what a sense of humor she had. Just as sweet as can be. So was the dog of course. It was such a pleasure to meet both of them. I then came home, and worked in my garden. Trimming the spent flowers off of my Rose Bushes, Geraniums, etc. then refilled the bird seed feeders. I also have a feeder for the Blue Jay that hangs around. He always lets me know if he is out of peanuts lol. All in all I have to say, that my day was Fantastic!!

    It takes so little to turn it into a wonderful day, doesn't it. I get to experience little moments like these because of my little dog and even if I spend the whole day hating the wold, that moment turns everything around and puts a smile on everybody's faces. Cheers to you perfect day emoticon
