The Horseshoe Wag



I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.  For me they are the role model for being alive.  ~Gilda Radner

In light of the recent tragedies we have heard or read about concerning our beloved breed, I thought we could all use something light to smile about.

Exuberance is a beautiful thing. It’s one of the biggest reasons we love our dogs so much. They are so in love with us and life itself that they change our whole way of looking at it. After all, they are right, aren’t they? It is the small things in life that collectively make it worth living. The horseshoe wag is one of those little gems. Every day when I come home, Dasher gives me the kind of greeting that takes over his whole body. He wags, he curls, and he dances. He goes so far as to smack his own face with that mighty tail of his. It is a display of love so great that it consumes his whole body. In my house we like to call that the “horseshoe wag.” To say that it warms my heart would be an understatement. In one fleeting moment I am reminded of how many memories we have shared together and how deep my love for him runs. So, Dasher, the feeling is mutual.
