Once again I'm adjusting to a new home, my sixth home this year and I'm trusting it will be my last for a while. This is a beautiful home with lots of wild desert landscaping all around and plenty of hiking trails for me and my dogs. The one drawback of this paradise is that there is also a lot of cactus, which has been playing havoc with the dogs' paws. It was getting to the point that our walks were becoming quite restricted and our enthusiasm was waning. One of the dogs in particular was having a hard time. The brave little fellow is blind so avoiding the stickers was even more of a challenge for the both of us. He got to the point he was shuffling along with his nose to the ground like an old man.
I remembered I had bought him some boots a few years ago and, miraculously, was able to find them again. What a difference!! This afternoon he flew down the trail with a spring in his step and all the confidence in the world. Success.
Isn't it interesting how, even when I know I'm on the right track with this latest move, life still seemed to be a bit of a struggle, but with just a little lateral thinking and a small adjustment I can make a huge leap forward. That is what the message the World presented me thru my Lens today. I'm sure there are a few more minor re-directions I can make to other areas of my life, too.
|One happy dog.|

These boots were made for walking,
And that's just what I've done.
Now I'm gonna take a nap
Right here in the sun!
Special thanks to Ruffwear for these great quality dog boots. I'm linking this to the Theme Thursday blog. The theme this week is gadgets and I think these boots qualify.
