This week we gather inspiration from our Chief Morale Officer and more generally, pups. Dogs are wonderful. They are terrific companions, can be hard working (not our Chief Morale Officer- he is all sleep and no work), are fun and of course, are ever hopeful. Dogs are hopeful that possibly someone might want to play at a moments notice, or that a treat will topple out of a pocket at just the right second. This unbridled enthusiasm is sweet and inspiring, because seeing the possibilities of a situation instead of only negative outcomes is a special gift. It is a lesson that we view every day from our leader of morale, especially when a milkbone is involved. So here is to being ever hopeful in all of our pursuits, even when the squeaky toy seems far away; because it's a much better way to spend the day.
