As we waited for the show we sat talking about the pop art painting I had done of our dog. We decided we should do one for our other dog as well as his dog that passed away. We looked through our phones comparing dog photos to see which ones would be good.
The lady at the table next to us could not resist. She pulled out her phone and started showing us pictures of her dogs. We laughed and shared dog stories. There is just something about fellow dog lovers that makes such an easy connection.
I'm grateful to bond over our dogs. I'm grateful for the laughs we shared. I'm grateful for a night out with my husband. I'm grateful for our beautiful, sweet dogs. I'm grateful for dogs' ability to bring people together and spread joy.
What have you found in common with strangers? Have your pets helped introduce you to strangers?
May today help us realize our commonality with those around us. May we be brought together by our love of animals. Have a beautiful day!
