DOGS CAN MAKE WEEKENDS GREAT!

From Friday through Monday, I noticed / learned something valuable about dogs. Dogs can make weekends great!

Harley and Jaxson certainly did. They provided two very special gifts that I wasn’t expecting and it was fabulous…

DOGS CAN MAKE WEEKENDS GREAT!

MY FIRST GIFT –

❤️ The gift of happiness for someone else.

My oldest sibling and only brother Harold (whom I affectionately call “Bubba”) lives approx 100 miles away.

For months we’ve all been waiting patiently for he and my sister-in-law to travel to Charleston. This weekend, our dreams came true.

Harold is currently undergoing some medical treatments so scheduling consecutive days away from home are challenging. But waiting for the right time made the visit all the more sweeter. #patienceyieldsrewards

When it comes to dogs, my brother and I are kindred spirits. We both grew up in a house wanting yet never having – pets.

He’s a huge Harley fan and simply adored Leo.

I could not WAIT for him to meet my pre-adolescent Doodle Jaxson. And when he did, my suspicions were “spot on” – they became forever friends…

DOGS CAN MAKE WEEKENDS GREAT!

I sincerely believe no matter what your battling, whatever your demon / issue / illness – a dog can lift your spirits.

You’ll be surprised how much better you feel, even for just a weekend…

Although I know my brother will triumph over this adversity, I have been worried about him. #naturally

Watching him with my Boys even kept me smiling and laughing!

MY SECOND GIFT –

❤️ The UPS man!

Because of the Boys, I they receive boxes all the time. Companies ship items to me them in hopes of a product review. When this particular box arrived at our door on Friday, Inspector Doodle hopped into action and gave it the once-over with his nose only to walk away disgusted…

DOGS CAN MAKE WEEKENDS GREAT!WHY? –

Nothing inside was edible!

The contents were more to my liking. #aboutdoodletime

These “Doods” even ganged up on me and refused to participate in a photo with my treasure trove of goodies…

Their lack of involvement could not restrain my delight –

  • FINALLY – – – a box was delivered to the house FOR ME! #hellosomebody
  • I love Fresh Wave products!
  • Receiving their entire line in a beautifully wrapped gift basket made my day #donttakemuch

Stay tuned for a complete review on all of these incredible Doodlelicious scented items…

    Dogs make EFFURYDAY great! Glad your brother and sister-in-law are able to visit you-here’s hoping his health issues improve. With the fur help offered, no doubt that will be soon. 🙂

      On Monika, you are so right! I do believe he’ll be back soon for some more doodle love, once you’ve had it – you always want some more!

    Dear Cathy,
    Glad the boys provided plenty of love for your brother.
    Teddy does the same thing provided the visitor dispenses treats. He does this same thing for new packages, vets them for Doodle smells.

    Regards,
    Rich

      Hey Rich – Thanks! I left the treat dispensing out. My brother wasn’t up for church on Sunday, and when they weren’t interested in dinner that evening I figured out why 🙂 #slickdoodleboys

    Oh, I try and make my Ma’s weekend better! Sometimes I succeed, sometimes, not so much! BOL! I do thinks that Jaxson is adorables! And I can see he and your brother are BFFFFFF’s!
    Ma was thinkin’ of tryin’ that fresh wave stuffs! It’s more pricey than most, so she didn’t want to waste her green papers on something that smelled like me after I rolled in somethings, if you knows what I mean….
    I thinks she’ll give it a try!
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥

      Hi Ruby! you are correct! Jaxson and Harley are the best of Doods! Tell your mom to wait on buying any Fresh Wave products. We will offer a discount and give-away when we write our post later this month. 🙂

    Cathy that was a terrific post. Your brother has the kindest face and the last picture of he and Jax looking at the camera is priceless. I want to know both of the, and by the way, doodlemom too. LeeAnna

      Hey girl – how are you? Yes, my brother has always been one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. I feel quite confident that our “physical” paths will cross soon and very soon. How’s Cole?

    We love FreshWave too! It’s always nice when we humans get a little something, though Luke is also shocked when a package arrives that is not for him!

    We hope the visit with your boys helps your brother on his road to recovery; lifting his spirits like that has to be a positive thing. ♥

      He had the absolute best time – Jaxson was relentless giving him love and kisses. Kept his spirits up most of the weekend for sure!
