August Happiness Challenge -- Day 26

Look at my happy kitty
Friday's happiness: Sweet Pea! She's our neighborhood dog. Everyone loves her. A friendly little black ball of fluff.

I used to see her just about every morning on my way to the train, but she's been absent for weeks. I feared the worst. After all, she's 12 years old. Time has turned her muzzle white. She has such severe back problems that when the pavement is wet, her human has to carry her. 

But this evening I saw her! And even better, she saw me, pulling on her leash and waddling on over to give me kisses. 

Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.

If you want to play along, just come back here (meaning to this blog, not this individual post) each day in August, looking for the happy cat. Every day I will try to have a post with the headline: August Happiness Challenge: Day [X]. Leave a comment and then post your own daily happiness, with August Happiness Challenge in the title to make it easy to find. 


  1. Puppies! My weakness! (and regardless of age, they're all puppies!)

  2. That made me smile!! How wonderful. Puppy (and kitten) love is just the best.


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
