August 26 is National Dog Day, and how well-deserving they are to have their own day! Thinking about National Dog Day (founded by pet lifestyle expert and animal behaviorist Colleen Paige, and sponsored by the Animal Miracle Network), I pondered about what it means to have a dog (or in my case, five)! That prompted me to think about what lessons I, as a Hu-Mom, have learned from my five Sibes. Here is a list (in no particular order) of the Top Ten things I have learned from my Husky "kids" that I feel has made me a better human: I’ve learned how to enjoy the more simpler things in life: the touch of a breeze, a beam of sunlight stretching across the deck, a butterfly as it flutters by, the feel of raindrops tapping my face, the smell of blooming flowers, the coolness of grass, the sound of fresh snow crunching under foot, and the taste of quietly falling snowflakes. I appreciate food (even more so than before). I am reminded how wonderful snuggling together can be.
