Happiness is,,,,



2 Spotty Dogs. I don't know why, but these two dogs ALWAYS put a smile on my face when I see their owner, Mark, is walking them. I finally pulled over yesterday and asked if I could take a photo of the dogs and he said "Sure!" Embarrassed, I told him how my friend, Jen and I would look for them on our way back from early morning Boot Camp. When we would see them, we would point and yell "Spotty Dogs! Spotty Dogs!" and our morning would REALLY be off to a fun start! He said he was glad they could do their part in making someone happy. Sydney and Snickers are part Dalmation and part Labrador Retriever. I needed a random smile that afternoon. You know Dog is God spelled backwards. Mysterious ways....Smiles from the Spotties to everyone!!!

and spots spelled backwards is "stops"... so, i guess God wanted you to "stops" and takes a picture or two to make you happy???

I used to own a Dalmation and he was beautiful. Dalmations have this unique "smile" they do. It looks really vicious, but it is actually their version of a smile.

These spotty dogs always put a smile on my face as well.

Love

Shannon-
There is a band "The Sky blue Catfish" that sings a song "God's Dog". It is a kids workshop CD and I love it! The songs are really funny too! It was one of the boys favorites when they were your kid's age!
