Life Lessons from Basil Part 1

You can learn a lot from your dog. Sometimes all you need to do is pay attention.
Today at the dog park Basil showed me that anything is possible.
After a good 45 minutes of running balls-to-the-wall with all his new puppy friends it was time to find the watering hole. Well, we were in the large dog area so the only water dishes were 5 gallon buckets. Knowing that these buckets are almost taller than my Boston terrier I went off in search of a Basil sized dish. I turned my back for a moment and when I got back I was amazed.
Basil had climbed up the side of the bucket to make himself tall enough to reach the water. I was pretty astonished! He saw what he wanted and he made it happen.

Sometimes I need to take a clue from my fur baby and try a little harder. It’s funny how life is.
Thanks Basil for being cute and amazing!
