Because Dogs Prove that Happiness is Key

An Open Thank You Letter to My Dog
Leslie Stratton

Dear Pup,

Who is a good dog?!! Come on, you knew I would start the letter off this way. I know you will not understand this but hopefully the MilkBone I give you at the end will help. I am sure it will make you drool all over the floor, but do not worry, I will wipe it up (maybe before you lick it up).

Remember that time you chewed up the dog obedience book? That was ironic. My parents and I were mad at you that day but could not help but laugh. That is what you do little pup, you make mistakes but the joy you bring overall makes the mistakes seem so small. Please do not take this as an invitation to chew everything you want. My dad's new trucks interior has suffered enough. My dad tried to sell you that day (just kidding we all know he never would have).

I think my favorite part of having your wiggly butt around is how happy you are. You could run into the water well in the backyard and be up and running to greet me seconds later (true story). Dogs are a perfect example of the truth that we are meant to be happy. You little pup, were the happiest ball of fur from day one. Gosh you do it so well; you do not know any other emotion but happiness.

If I have had the worst day or the best day, I can always count on you to greet me at the door with such excitement, even if I was gone for only a couple of minutes. Know, I always appreciate you licking me like I have been gone forever. Your dedication for making me feel loved via slobber is admirable. I may get frustrated when you lick me directly in my mouth but it is only for a second (I forgive you).

As your owner, I am happy you are happy. You make me happy and that can never be repaid. In the meantime, here's a MilkBone. Get your drool on.

Keep Wagging,

Your Owner

PS sit. stay..... good dog!

Because I'm still reminiscing about simpler times.


The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

9 Reasons 'The Wilds' Should Be Your Next Binge Watch

The Wilds is the Best New Show on Amazon Prime


As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
