The prompt for this week's gratitude journal entry is to show our appreciation for our furry companions. On Instagram, see other entries for this specific week at #G52Prompt31.
Jennifer Frith sends a weekly prompt for those of us who want to participate in this year long activity.
There are beautiful examples of all types of journaling creativity for all the prompts for the year to date at gratitude52community and #gratitude52community on Instagram.
The quote above my pencil portrait of my Havanese, Chico, when he was a puppy, is my own.
"Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet." Jennifer selected a quote by Colette to accompany this week's prompt.
Many dog lovers have expressed their feelings about their furry pets so poetically that I am adding a few more of my favourite ones:
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog." Douglas Mallock.
"The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog." George Graham.
"Buy a pup and your money will buy love unflinching." Rudyard Kipling.
Which furry companion do you prefer? Sigh...and before you send me all types of furry companions, lets limit this list to dogs and cats, ok?
Why do you appreciate their company? Do you have any funny dog or cat stories to share? I know you do and I am waiting to see which of you will send me some of those quirky tales! (no pun intended)
My furry companions:
Chico (Havanese) 2005 -
Sophie (Maltese) 2007 -
