Shetland Sheepdogs are not usually a source of life lessons, but these two certainly are. In this story, they reminded us to be thankful for the little things we do have in life, and that includes the merits of showing gratitude.
These Shetland Sheepdogs never fail to howl their thanks after being given their breakfast each morning. Now, we don’t know for sure why they only howl after every breakfast, but we have a good idea why.
It’s probably because their breakfast is the heartiest and biggest meal served to them every day. If we were these dogs’ owners, we’d make all their meals the same with that kind of appreciative behavior!
You see every morning after breakfast, no matter what the weather or where they are, these dogs take a moment to howl their thanks for the hearty meal given to them. It’s a small act, but it’s an impactful one that reminds us of the true meaning of gratitude.
For these dogs, gratitude is more than just appreciation. Consistent display of thankfulness no matter what’s going on in their lives, even when times are tough, seems to be a theme these dogs stick to. When they express gratitude regularly, they feel happier and more positive overall. That’s something we should all be practicing a little more these days.
So, the next time you are inclined to complain, take a moment to send a prayer of thanks for the things you do have. It just might open your mind to the blessings you have received and are still receiving. You might even find yourself feeling a little bit happier as a result.
Go ahead and show some gratitude today—you’ll be glad you did. Mad props to these doggos for demonstrating how easy it is to show thankfulness for the small things we enjoy in life!
