How do you survive the lockdown blues? Me, I dance with my dogs!
Enjoy this improvised canine freestyle dance video to the song “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” I put it together with my incredibly sweet and talented standard poodle today, in an effort to ward off the lockdown blues. I hope it will lift your spirits and brighten your day.
Wishing you comfort and joy! Leila and Solo the dog xx

My adorable poodle is giving me the “Pleeease give me some of your food” look . . . and of course, I will oblige.
Dogs, with their loving expressions and gentle nature can make almost anyone’s heart melt. Even the hardest heart is swayed by their kind nature. What if we took a hint from our furry friends and tried a little bit harder to be gentle and kind?
Acts of kindness, in word and deed are extremely positive and powerful. But we will only ever see the power revealed when we can say— “Kindness begins with me.”
Each day they offer incredible wisdom and inspirational life lessons, of which I am truly grateful. This poem below, by an unknown author, beautifully captures many of the amazing life lessons learned from our beloved dogs. Whoever wrote it must have had a very special relationship with their dog!
In a world that often seems cold and unkind, I pray this simple poem will help us refocus on some of the more important and simpler things in life.
I open the door. You are already bounding to the door with a wagging tail, flashing teeth, and four prancing paws. Your healing power dissolves the most difficult day from memory. A cold nose and warm kisses trigger a child’s laughter from my heart. I am a better human for having you in my life.
