Added Value

One of my favorite things about tooling around town with my gorgeous golden retriever, Marbles Bear, is the default smiles I receive. No matter where we walk and no matter where we drive he gets smiles and compliments galore.

I was driving into down town one day to pick up Keri and Marbs had his head out the back window. We stopped at a red light and the pick up truck next to us had a couple of 20 something dudes in there and they were just a little bit behind me. I had my window up so I don’t know if they thought I couldn’t hear them or what but they were talking to Marbles in baby voices. It was so funny. I rolled down my window and started chatting with them. They thought he was the best looking dog they had ever seen. It was cute and on that same road a woman on a bicycle on the other side of our car was talking to him too.

It’s an everyday occurrence and I love the added value of receiving the default smiles. Naturally, when people smile at Marbles they generally look up at Keri and I and smile at us too. It’s like the whole world can feel the love and the joy we have in our lives. We’re a very lucky little family.
