This is JoJo again and it’s time for my journal. As a diva Yorkie, I like all things nice….and expensive….given as a gift….from my boys. Much to my surprise, I was told that a new treat was on its way to me and I was excited. What could it be? Diamonds, caviar, pearls, a new cashmere sweater to brave the cold? The list is endless. My suitor came in with something behind his back. Flowers….maybe red roses. BARK!!
Well, to my horror, I was given a rawhide treat. You know, one of those leather logs that dogs chew on for hours on end. Absolutely not….no way. Go directly to jail; do not pass go; do not collect $200. Sniff….well it does smell good. Lick…..nice taste. Chomp….what have I got to lose? The end result was a treat I treasured. As with most things in our life, the simplest things are usually the best things. The things we remember and treasure forever. A gentle kiss from a lover, a hug from your child, a homemade Valentine, a bouquet of dandelions from your front yard. Yes, even a rawhide treat. Remember to keep it real and celebrate the simple things in life. Tell me what has been your favorite simple treat?
