Life is a collection of moments. My life is full of special moments with my dog Sugar. Sugar has shown me to see beauty in every moment.
I am sharing a special moment that occurred last Saturday, January 18th as part of Nature’s Recipe® #RecipeForMoments.
I’m fortunate to experience the changing of seasons. Winter is my least favorite, as I am not fond of the cold air and wind. On the other hand, Sugar loves it.
How could I not resist to go to the park when Sugar took her leash, sat by door and her eyes spoke to me, “Let’s go, its not that cold.” I dearly love Sugar and of course responded to her request.
At the park, Sugar delighted me with her Golden Smiles as she saw and approached the open field covered with snow. Her Golden Eyes lit up, she wagged her tail and barked for me to throw the toy. Sugar, as a senior dog, remains energetic. As I threw the toy, Sugar sprinted the snowy field to fetch it. I watched Sugar with awe as her speed and form was incredible. Speedy Sugar, as I nicknamed her, immediately brought the toy back and dropped it on the ground. Sugar’s gaze suddenly focused on two squirrels climbing a tree. I threw the toy by the tree and Sugar happily ran to fetch it. She carried the toy as she roamed the tree. I’m sure Sugar was looking and “wondering, where did the squirrels go?” Sugar ran back to me with such Golden Delight and sending me a message “did you see the squirrels?”
Sugar’s smile, continued wagging tail and barking was to its max. Sugar conveyed her lots of Golden FUN Time! I continued to play fetch with Sugar and it made me not think of the cold. Sugar’s Golden Joy provided me warmth. It also reminded me of the phrase by John Ruskin “Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” It truly makes a difference too when you spend it with someone special like your dog; human animal bond moments are priceless.
Seeing Sugar’s Golden Happy SMILE was one of the highlights of this trip to the park. Hearing Sugar’s Golden Barks were what made this trip to the park extra special. It took 16 days for Sugar to bark again after a mass the size of a ping-pong was removed from her tongue. The sound of Sugar’s barks was extra sweet to hear in my ear. It was really cold too and Sugar’s barks created an enthusiasm sound in my body. From Sugar kissing the snow, I sensed her Golden Message to me, “This was a PAWsome way to celebrate.”
Before we left the park, Sugar stared at the lake. It sure made me wonder what she was staring at. Whatever it was I felt her happiness and contentment. Golden Happy for the time we spent together. This trip to the park was a precious perfect Golden Special Moment with Sugar.
