Watching my two Shih Tzu puppies race around my yard is one of those "little things in life" that transports me out of daily concerns. For a few minutes, I follow them as they rocket around the yard; they don't really run, they LEAP! They take great strides with itty-bitty short legs and seem to fairly fly a mere 12 inches off the ground! It's a site that really rocks 'cuz they have SOOO much energy! 

Now, I'm sure everyone has their favorite breed/species of dog/pet. Some might not even like the idea of pets of any kind. I'm not lookin' to start a discussion about pet/no pet or breed/species. I'm simply sayin' that for a few brief minutes, I think about nothing else than the amazingly graceful, energetic and unbridled movment of Lulu and Zoe  and how that eases my mind into reflecting on "the little things in life that can be joyful.

Then, I come to my senses and realize that "adult responsibilities are calling. So now, I have to catch Lulu and Zoe and bring them back inside. THAT...is another scene all its own!
