Do you have a Bucket List for your dog?
There’s a television commercial circulating about a man who takes his dog on a car ride, stopping at different points along the trip to do a special activity or visit a special place. It becomes clear that he is taking his dog on a last ride, a bucket list of sorts.
My two dogs are both in their senior years; Maxie will be 15 this June and Mia turned 9 on April 1. Over the years, I have read articles published regarding owners that created a list of ‘final’ activities for their dogs.
I’ve considered this, but to be honest, I couldn’t come up with one. Maybe I don’t want to think about the true meaning of a bucket list- that my dog’s are headed towards a day when they will no longer be my daily companions.
We all know dogs live in the moment. The reality of it, is that I enjoy making plans to do things for them in the immediate and watch them enjoy a new experience.
Instead of a bucket list, how about like dogs, we enjoy the moments we have now. Their final days will here soon enough.
How do you enjoy your dogs on a daily basis?
