Every Day is a Gift

Mishu – and most dogs – wakes up everyday and sniffs the air and the ground to see what is new. She uses all of her senses to experience the wonder that our earth brings us and the joy of being alive. Approaching each day that way is not always easy for humans, but it is worth a try. Reminding ourselves in the morning or before bed (or both) that every day is a gift is a wonderful way to be more optimistic and to see the small things that make life enjoyable. Some people find that writing in a journal or writing down things that they are grateful for every day helps them remember that every day is a gift. Or, do like Mishu does and go outside very morning and find the beauty and the newness, look at the grass and the trees and the flowers (or the snow and the stillness) and remind yourself that the new day brings new possibilities and you are lucky to be alive to experience them.

Dear Callie, When I was a puppy, I definitely would have said dogs were better…

Dear Mishu, I have been so sick and my human is so worried about me….

Dear Alyssa – have you seen me? I look like a combination of a dog, a deer and a fox… I’m all legs and awkward compared to those cute doodles at the dog park… I definitely look different, but then people tell me that they love me for my spirit and my advice and my Cleopatra eyes… Each of us has our own uniqueness and I hope you can find a way to feel great about yourself for what is special about you.
Love: Mishu

- Dear Mishu, My friends are all much better looking than I am and it’s really hard on my confidence. Any suggestions? Alyssa asks, Mishu answers -

I like this girl, but I’m nervous to ask her out. Any advice? A. Asks, Mishu answers

I like this girl, but I’m nervous to ask her out. Any advice? A. Asks, Mishu answers

A: Dear A.:  When I meet dogs I like, I give them a play bow to say, ‘hey, let’s play.’ If they bow back and start playing – great. If not, that’s ok too. Maybe ask her if she likes to do something you really like, and if she says yes, invite her to join you sometime. If she says no then you can play by yourself or ask someone else to join you….
… Just think – asking someone to play is actually the easy part. The hard part comes if they say yes and you have to learn to get along.
Love,
Mishu
