Happiness is a smiling dog!

I soooo wish I could have gotten a picture of Cowboy playing today! He was grinning the biggest grin. He was having a blast! We took him to the dog park and then to the kid park where there is a water park like thing. It is like sprinklers. He was just running and bouncing and grinning and just having a blast thinking he was a kid!

The dog park is an experience like nothing else in the world! Some people should not take their dogs to the dog park or maybe they should have started MUCH sooner so the dog gets used to it and how to act. My dog loves it and is friendly without being TOO friendly! and if he were a little kid, he would be running and giggling, yelling "Look at me! Mommy! Look at me!"

My kids had a blast too. I am so glad I got off my butt and took them all up there. And, see this is the meat of my post today. I am happy. I am truly happy for the first time in a long time. Oh don't get me wrong I haven't been miserable for a long time but I haven't felt this good about things in a long time.

I have been on a new med for about a month now and it has been GREAT! It is suppose to help with both my depression/anxiety issues and also my pain from my neck and back. Bingo! It worked for both. Treating one was so not working but now, awesome! I am actually happy. It is such a foreign concept to me.

I am more relaxed, in general, though the kids were pushing me on Sunday but that's okay, Goofball got me to relax after a bit. He always makes me smile, even when I don't want to.

But anyway, I have a lot going for me too, so not only do I feel G.R.E.A.T! I have a lot of great things going on. My kids, my favorite guy, my job, my NEW car, my special, special puppy and just so many things.

Anyway, just had to share the happiness with everyone! And yes, dogs do smile.
