Keep Your Nose Up – Life Wisdom From The Puppy

Keep Your Nose Up – Life Wisdom From The Puppy
by Gina Valley

We have 2 adorable puppies in our home.  They are Ziva, who is Son#1’s ward, and Bear, who is Son#2’s charge.  They’re sister and brother littermates, Labrador mixes.  Ziva joined our family 2 weeks ago.  Bear moved in this past weekend.

They are, as puppies are apt to be, hysterical to hang out with.

I’m watching as all of life and its Good Guys, Bad guys, and Goofballs is being displayed as a Hide & Seek game in my house and yard.  Boys as players in a competition that truly, laughingly, reflects the players they’ll likely be in life.
