When I’m feeling blue, my dogs motivate me to get out and walk. And when I do, I always gain fresh perspective and feel happier!
Life is tough, and more often than not we find ourselves sitting inside lamenting our problems in the dark rather than getting outside and letting nature and sunshine help us heal.
Personally, I think dog owners have an amazing advantage in this area. Dogs need their daily walks or playtime outside. What better motivator to lay aside our problems and get outside and hang out with our furry friends!
If you’re feeling sad or troubled in heart, I’d like to encourage you to get your walking shoes on, and get outside. Let your dogs lead you to beautiful places where nature soothes the weary soul and vibrant colors ignite feelings of hope. Breath in the fresh air and exhale any worry and fear. See God in creation, be encouraged, and give thanks.

Years ago, when I acquired my first Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, I had no idea they’d become addictive. They’re beautiful, friendly, fun-loving, comforting and easy to care for… what’s one more? However, what began as a simple task of caring for one dog risked turning my comfy calm life resembling a bed of roses into a garden of weeds. Thankfully, I learned early on the art of creating a beautiful garden.
Finding harmony in a multi-dog home is similar to creating a beautiful garden.
In preparing this article I interviewed Cindy, a friend whose garden could be compared to Monet’s—it’s extraordinarily beautiful and harmonious. As we spoke, I discovered we had much in common. People often wonder why she would want such a large garden—I mean the more you plant, the more you have to care for, right? Her response echoed the words of my heart: “It’s my passion!” I asked her to offer three words that would inspire others to find harmony in their garden. Her response: Passion, Patience, and Perseverance. These are the same three essentials I would apply to finding harmony in a multi-dog home.
