Do You Have Dog Determination And Joy In The Journey
My little friend in this video always had a sprightly energy, whether working on opening this box, riding in the car, fetching a ball or a stick. It didn’t matter, he just enjoyed life. It took him about 3 and half minutes to open this box and he enjoyed every minute of it.
They say the joy is in the journey. I can’t say that I always agree with that, but I do agree that we, as humans, miss out on a lot of the little joys of life when we don’t focus on the moment.
Sometimes the moment isn’t pleasant and it is a stretch to see the big picture in those times and focus on whatever good that can be found in that moment. It is definitely a way of life that needs to be learned. Some have a better grasp on it than others.
Watching little Angus just enjoy working that box to get it open, he didn’t stop to ponder whether he could or couldn’t, the fact that success eluded him for 3 some minutes, that his paw got stuck a few times, he just kept his determination and enjoyed the journey.
