Ailment: Overall lack of enthusiasm towards one's job; general feeling of sadness, possibly hormonal; disappointment at waning sunlight in the early morning hours; undesirable feeling having nothing to look forward to and fear that feeling may last forever.

Remedy: Lunchtime visit to two beagles complete with boundless tail wags; leash up beagles for special walk through the woods (never mind this may put you back to work 15 minutes later than your lunch time allows); soak up the beagle enthusiasm towards anything and everything they encounter, as well as the sunshine, warm breeze, and fresh air; look up at the blue sky through the trees and consider looking up more often; promise to take the beagles' lesson of living in the moment with you throughout the rest of the day.

High probability of a bright afternoon. Smiles and laughter likely. Beagle enthusiasm, floppy ears, and general sweetness may be addictive in some.

How true! My beloved Benny's joy in life pulls me out of the dumps during hard times, too!

There is nothing better than a bunch of wagging tails. My hounds are always happy to see me--no moods, no holding grudges just pure happiness. It's contagious!

love & wags,
River's mom

That's exactly it! It's how I explain the aceness of dogs to non-doggy people. Dogs are so in the moment. :-)

Yes its too true. Everyday I open the door after getting home from work I am greeted by the happiest of tail wags and lots of licks and jumps. Who could stay down when they are so high?

So, so true! Seeing your dog's face and happy greetings is the best remedy. Even if you're having the worst day, their excitement to see you just has to make you smile!

I had the same feelings!

my workload has been overwhelming...I told a friend that I was going to hire Daizy n George as my personal sherpas.

I was serious! Now I've just got to train them to walk on their hind legs and disguise them in trench coats, sunglasses and a top hat to pass the security desk :)

Hope next week looks brighter!
