Its 8.30pm here and we are just about to get ready for bed. Well... Dom is. He is already snoozing while waiting for me to finish up here.

Its Monday again. I was just talking to my boss the other day and we were both commenting on how fast time flies around this time of the year. We could almost smell Christmas just round the corner. We both agreed that it might be the age thing as time sure flies when you are older. I've been working for this man since forever. When he asked me how long i've been working for him, i just really don't know as its been too long.

We are already working on things for 2012 and we are into March 2012. Considering the time frame we have, we are kinda late for events in 2012 if we are just in March. Its crazy to work so far ahead in time when we don't even know what tomorrow will bring.

I read a beautiful article on The Perfect Day with your dog. A very touching article on spending a perfect day with your furry family fellow. A day that is just about your furry friend and nothing else.

Sometimes i take for granted that Dom will be with me forever or at least for a very long time. But after his long sickies few months ago, i have learned to appreciate his love more and spend more time with him. I also read a lot more about his diet and his food and how all that can help give me many more days of grace with him.

He has taught me many things in his own quiet curly furry self. His love for me is most patient. He waits and waits for me without getting angry. When i am done with my work, he jumps up with so much joy that i finally have time to play with him. He never did once abandon me.

How can we have a perfect day for our furry fellow. I for one will have to off my mobile, the internet, the tv and the computer. A day spent just lazing around with my furry fellow. A day all about him and just him. I think he would like that a lot.

He just came by my table and told me.. "enough work on the computer already".. hehehhehe.. yes yes.. he tells me in his own quiet way. With his most endearing eyes.

The Perfect Day should go for all loved ones too. I know a lot of older folks around here would like that too. A day spent just talking, spending time without holding on to your mobile and looking at the screen the minute it vibrates. We have sometimes somehow evolved and include too much of our online existence into our real life to notice the ones around us that wants our time more. I do have to mend some of my ways ^.^

Curly needs to go for a leak now. He's back at my table looking at me.. hehehhehee.. Catch you all again soon.

he's like the sun

What a great post. I never thought about moments and making memories until Fred got sick and I realized I could have lost him. I also realized that I only had 3 pictures of Fred and I. I vowed that day to sneak special moments with him and to make sure more pictures were taken of me and my dogs - im always behind the camera and not in front.

The perfect day is zooming around on a little bike on a deserted island with a loved one..

Our little furries do give us so much and ask for so little in return. I know Duke would like that kind of perfect day.

Oh my gosh, I love that picture of Dom peaking around the corner!!! What a handsome boy!

Pip is 14 now and I am definitely realizing/facing that he is slowing down a little. It is so important to cherish every day, live in the moment, and make the most of the time we have!

We'd like a perfect day like that! It is important to spend time with all those we love since we never know what tomorrow will bring.

there is nothing like the love of your dog, and they both let me know their perfect day does not include electronics, when they lay on top of our laptops and ipads. :)

How true that time flies, our daily routines at times get us so caught up that we forget our furry friends need the time to be alone with us.

Our furry friends always dote on us and be there for us at all times that is why it is important to spent time appreciating them. This also goes for our loved ones too ^^

Thanks for the great post!

Love ya,
Jon Terry
