Today I took Renard and Chevalier to the park and we played with some new dogs, and my boys were so well behaved. They stayed out of fights and were very polite around the other dogs. I'm glad my little bastards are learning to be civil gentleman since they're representing me at the park too!
Afterward I went to get a delicious coffee drink at Dutch Bros, a local coffee chain, and was prepared to spend at least $4 when the woman at the counter told me that today my drink would only be a $1! Score! Not only was it frosty and sweet, but a quarter of the price, so with drink in hand I knew my day would only get better...
And it did! With two dogs and my drink in tow I walked through my entire town (which isn't a feat considering my town is kinda dinky) and only received smiles from everybody. I deposited a nice fat check, got complimented on my good taste in hosiery, and even had some tourists take pictures of me and the boys! The dogs and I had a nice little nap in the park and the weather was so fair that I thought about staying there forever...
...Until I got a really bad phone call. The kind of soul-crushing, makes you want to bawl in public kind of calls. Yes it was just one of those days where you have to take the good with the bad. Unfortunately, there seems to be some unwritten law that if you have too much good then life just has to throw some bad at you to even it out. But like they say, "when life throws you lemons you make lemonade," and I'm hoping these lemons aren't the bitter type, so we'll see how tasty I can make this situation.
In any case, the weather is still beautiful and I'm surrounded by good people who love and cherish me, so life really isn't bad at all. I hope you all had wonderful days too, and if not just remember that good comes with the bad too!
