If you’ve owned dogs all your life, or recently became a dog owner, there’s a good chance you like spending time outdoors.
Sipping on your favorite beverage while reading under a tree or walking your dog outdoors seems routine for dog owners.
And that’s because dogs help us enjoy the quality things in life. They help us find hobbies – the kind that help us live longer.
They increase the chances of you finding what it is you were meant to do in life. They take you places you’ve never been. Introduce you to people you’d never meet.
There is no five minutes later or tomorrow. For dogs, it’s all in the moment. They live for the moment ONLY. And you’ll be happy to know that it rubs off pretty damn good.
I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately. I’ve owned dogs all my life and love getting dirty with them in the great outdoors. But now, I have the sudden urge at 24 years of age, to plant seeds and watch them grow.
Just recently it was cooking the most healthy, delicious food possible (didn’t even know how to boil pasta when I started).
I think it’s embedded in us humans to be hands on. We can only work behind a computer for so long creating virtual products and services only to miss out on the simpler, less stressful things in life. I believe dogs help curb our technology dependencies and help balance life the way it should be.
Funny to think dogs actually helped with the advancement of human civilization centuries ago and now we rely on them to save us from it.
Any who, I thought I’d share with you all what’s growing and blooming in the garden this spring.
From herbs, vegetables, fruits, hibiscus, orchids, succulents, California native plants… I encourage everyone to give gardening a shot. It’s been a great pastime for me recently. I wake up running to the garden to see what’s in bloom rather running to the computer to read emails.
So what’s your dog got you hooked on lately?
