One of the benefits of visiting with my family is that I get to hang out with the family dogs Maxwell & Dixie. Dixie watches over my brother and his family. Dixie is a beagle, like Snoopy of PEANUTS fame. She’s always doing something funny. She cracks me up!
Dixie knows I have a soft spot for her and so she sometimes follows me around in the kitchen to see if I’lll let her help with dishes by licking a plate or a spoon. The other night, we all came back to the rental house we’re staying in and people settled all over the living area and started watching Harry Potter, playing games, etc. I went into the kitchen and Dixie followed me around wagging her tail, so happy to see me. She was very persistent, so I asked everyone if she’d been fed her dinner, and was told she’d been fed.
I looked at Dixie and asked her, “what’s up, Dixie-Doodle?” I call her that, it just seems to fit her, although I do feel her “real” name is Lucy. Don’t ask me why, it’s just my intuition. Anyway, she immediately told what she wanted – water! She was thirsty!
She drank the first bowl of water straight off. She was so happy to get it. I don’t think anyone gave her water for about 8 hours. Then I gave her another bowl and yet another! She drank part of the third and was very thankful.
Like most dogs she didn’t hold a grudge, she was just grateful and happy. Little dog, big heart!
They’re such teachers, aren’t they? Dixie loves to sit and look out the window. In most homes, this means she has to climb up somewhere to get a view. As you can see from the picture’s below, she’s very clever about getting herself situated in a comfortable spot where she can sit and watch what’s going on outside. Dixie does the same thing in the car.
Dixie is a cousin to Snoopy for sure!
I AM grateful for the little things in life. My heart is big with great gratitude.
