there is a list going around

there is a list published in a British paper of 50 things your dogs should get to do in their life time

My own quick scan of the list suggests my dogs have gotten to do many of them

Creating a list of the things that have brought the dogs or the humans the most joy from that list is easy

1. Flop down in front of a morning fire
2. Go for a swim in the sea (lake for us - but same point)
3. Go mad in the snow
4. Dig up a flower bed
5. Do the 'Beethoven' shake and soak everyone around you
6. Have your own spot on the sofa
7. Accompany your owner on a run/cycle ride
8. Attend a family picnic
10. Cheer your owner up when they are down
12. Roll around in a really stinky, muddy puddle
13. Ruin a pair or slippers or shoes
14. Sleep in your owners bed
16. Chase a cat during a dream
21. Convince your owner you can howl English words
22. Get filthy within 30 minutes of a bath
23. Howl along with your favourite song
25. Learn to skateboard
27. Show the postman who's boss
29. Try to follow a squirrel up a tree
30. Go to work with your owner
31. Have your own social media page
32. Bound through a forest
33. Have a personalised kennel (well it's a board that can move with him!)
34. Go on a boat and get your sea legs 
35. Play frisbee on the beach
37. Steal someone's lunch when they're not looking
39. Eat doggy ice cream
43. Rip the stuffing out of a pillow or cushion
44. Unwrap birthday presents
46. Be in a family portrait
47. Have a stand off with your own reflection
49. Star in a YouTube video

not too shabby :D

Well, I'd say we've done quite a good job at checking off that list!

Don't you love lists? Making them, checking stuff rewarding.
