My dog Buddy is the happiest being in the whole wide world.
He is like a little walking Prozac pill. If I could somehow capture his joie de vivre, encapsulate it in pill form and sell it, I would be a millionaire.
Everything is a joy to him. If I ask him what he hears as. “Cpihshakepoininaitreatadjfoijgoforawalkapofjgoodboycookiejpoadrideinthecar?”
He responds “Oh, go for a walk?” (I know this because I speak dog) “I am thrilled to take a walk!” And off we will go, his head and tail held high and with such earnestness and enthusiasm that it is contagious.
Look what I found for you:
They say you can’t buy happiness, but you can buy this!
I found it on Wikipedia, the definitive source of ALL THINGS.
It isn’t a specially formulated Doggy Prozac pill but it is the best I can do for you on such short notice.
So what makes Buddy so happy? I think he has some sort of cosmic insight into the secrets of achieving inner happiness and peace:
Dwell in the moment.
If someone offers you a treat, eat it.
Treat the people in your life with wild joyousness and abundant good cheer.
Take frequent walks.
That appears to be the gist of it, but it seems to work for him.
Think I will try it.
