Morning time with Nitro!

Just let nitro out for his morning run! He only goes out in the garden, in my back yard, but he loves sniffing around out there! He acts like he’s never been out there haha! He is always exploring and trying to find new things to sniff at! But you know what the worst thing he does is? He eats pooh! Omg guys! Its gross! He doesnt do it a lot but he does do it some. Its so disgusting!

Anyway, its his breakfast time now! He’s wagging his tail with gusto! And I know he’ll eat his breakfast with zest! He’s a lab, after all!

I’m hoping my pa frances can get some cool pictures of him today. I love taking pictures of him. I am going to try to get one of him eating some fruit.

Anyway I should finish up my coffee and then go feed him otherwise he will whimper at me for food!


The weekly smile!

Trent has invited us to participate in his challenge, the weekly smile! So I thought I’d give it a go for this week!
See his link below for the rules on how to participate!

What made me smile this week? Well a lot, actually!

But the thing I am going to write about is work!

Yesterday at work some of my clients made me smile! They were so appreciative of my call! They thanked me for brightening their day! That in turn, brightened my day!

Also another thing that made me smile? My dog! When I got home from work, he greeted me with a waggle of his tail and a nudge of his nose! He was delighted to see me as I was to see him!

Its good to smile!


Brekfast time for Nitro!

As I sit
Quietly typing
My baby boy
Comes and lays his head
On my knee
He wants breakfast
But its only 5:30 AM
But how can I resist
That cute little puppy dog
With his big soulful eyes
How is it
That labs have such soulful eyes
It would melt your heart
So off I go
Out to the living room
Feed him and watch him wolf it down
Before opening the door
On a fresh monday morning
And watching as he does his thing



Welcome to Joelle’s monthly prompt.
Todays prompt is: What would you say is the biggest change in your life?

I’d say for me its getting Nitro! Having my independence! Nitro has given me that. But not only that. Nitro is my constant companion. When I am down, he’s there. When I cry, he’s there. When I am an emotional mess, he’s there. He’s always there, he’s loving, loyal, and my constant. I really think having him in my life is such a huge blessing.

He’s also my eyes. He’s almost at retirement age now, and when he retires, I’ll keep him as a pet. I’m not getting another guide dog for the time being.

I couldnt rehome him. That would be so cruel. I’ve had him 7 years now. Since he was two years old.

I’ve built up a bond with him. And I cant give him up. But having a dog, any dog, is fantastic. I encourage everyong to get a dog. A dog makes life more bearable. If you have a mental illness, or are lonely, a dog will make you feel whole, a dog will make you love life again.

I hope nitro will be in mine for a long time yet.


Chilling after our exercise session ðŸ˜˜

I just did 15 minutes on the treadmill. I plan on doing another 15 minutes this evening. It was exhausting, but enjoyable. Here’s me and nitro relaxing just after exercising. He’s all snug and cosy find my feet, for those of you who can’t see the photo is of nitro and me with nitro curled up at my feet
