Dogs provide comfort, affection, and support. Dogs are essential.
They find pleasure in the most mundane things. They are members of the family, the kind I love to have around. I can never get into trouble with my dogs because they are unpretentious and forgiving. Dogs don’t wake up in the morning and think: “What’s going to make me angry today?”
Let’s try to be the helper and team player, not the egoist. With all the madness in the world, be more dog.
As a pet photographer (when not in lockdown), I meet lots of different dogs and would like to share some of these mood-lifters with you here to brighten your day.
#1 Cooper, The Labrador
Says “that’s definitely less than 6 feet apart, Karen!”
#2 Lemondrop, The Dalmatian
Checks on you if you are ready to embrace your inner dog and remember that if you can’t solve a problem, pee on it or bury it in the garden.
#3 Phoebe, The Parson Russell Terrier
Is just incredibly happy about the “working from home” thing.
#4 Toffee, The Working Cocker Spaniel
Just spaced out and happens to be staring in a general direction. But that’s ok, too. We know how that feels.
#5 Scout, A Galgo Mix
Will listen to all your problems. She has no answers either, but maybe dogs ARE the answer.
#6 Hazel, The Laekenois
Loves you even after you washed off her new perfume “Eau de Manure”.
#7 Ansgar, The Labrador Puppy
Is always ready to boost your happy hormones.
#8 Ernie, The Beagle
Just found out that you are who you are when no-one’s watching. And it’s shocking. But he’s a good boy, he won’t tell anyone.
#9 Django, The Basenji
Is seriously interested in how you are doing and whether you still eat that or not?
#10 Nala, The Labrador Puppy
Is going to be a service dog when she’s big. Is there a superlative to being “essential”?
#11 Hope, The Wolamute
Is as utterly befuddled as you are. If panicking would help, she’d panic, but it doesn’t.
#12 Püppi, The Miniature Bullterrier
Is just checking quickly. She’s available if immediate interference is necessary. If not, she’s off to seize the day by barking for no apparent reason whatsoever.
#13 Eddie, The English Bulldog
Might need a cup of tea first. And then a nap.
#14 Quinoa, The Doberman Mix
Knows that there’s always something to be happy about like socks or belly rubs or rolling in smelly stuff.
#15 Chet Baker, The Danish Swedish Farm Dog
Asks if you really think it’s time for another trip to the fridge?
#16 Louie, The French Bulldog
Is the most compassionate doggo of all. Seriously. And he would like to kindly inform you that there’s still some peanut butter on your upper lip.
#17 Finja, The Pointer Mix
Can’t believe what she’s hearing, but she fetches you a blanket if you need one.
#18 Be Happy For Finley’s Sake
He’s a Vizsla mix and just can’t handle too much drama.
#19 Mila, The Miniature Pinscher
Is off to the garden to dig up something yummy, but she will give you a second of her time if you keep it short.
#20 Karlo, The Münsterländer
Makes sure even Mondays are bearable. Or is it Tuesday?
