Moments

I think one of the greatest areas of frustration in being a dog or a dog owner is the language barrier we face. If only there were times of open communication where nothing was left to interpretation! As a human we are often concerned with our dogs' happiness and health. How do we know they are truly happy? In times of sickness we wish with every fiber of our being that our dogs could tell us how to make it better. There's no doubt that dogs are much better at grasping human communication than we are at doggie communication but still they must be so frustrated when their humans just don't quite understand.

But then there are moments... brief, precious moments where there is clear and perfect communication. These moments often consist of pure, unadulterated joy and happiness. These moments are the moments you treasure and you keep close to your heart. These are the moments where there are no questions as to happiness for the look in the eyes tells you it is so.

And that's the way I feel about Riley's new profile picture. It was a magic moment of relaxation and happiness captured in Riley's face and snapped in a photograph. I realize how lucky I am to have a keepsake of this perfect moment where there is no language barrier, only joy.
