Look, times are confusing and not a little depressing. We live in a world full of lying politicians, asshole bigots, rising walls, idiot bosses, nuclear threat, and a deteriorating global environment. Wait… where are you going?
Stick with me. We also live in a world where people persistently strive to practice kindness and love. Still! And as we all know, kindness and love require a lot more bravery than fear and hate. Hate is easy. Love is haaaaard. And we have to keep loving this stupid world and all its stupid people.
Which is where dogs come in. If you’re just a little nice to a dog, they will love everything! Food! Walks! Pets! Naps! Toys! Sunshine! They ain’t care, it’s all good! Fuck baths and rain though, that shit is unpleasant.
So let’s take a cue from the warm feels we get from these tiny doggies. Happiness is contagious. The tiny dog gurus will teach us.
Being held is the best.
Take care of your teeth.
Find a good hiding spot to recharge.
Take a nap when you need to.
If you get scared, find a friend to be scared with.
Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself.
Travel as much as you can and learn about the world.
It’s good to be different!
And remember, anyone can be a tiny dog. It’s just a state of mind.
