Last few days I've been grumping ...

Just stomping around, unhappy with everything, for no particular reason. Harrumph.

Tasha (the STLMedia WatchDog) must have noticed.  Girl pays serious attention to my attitude. While I was being a complainer, Tasha did what she had to to make our world better.  Here are the rules she obviously runs by:

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.

Take naps.

Stretch before rising.

Run, romp, and play daily.

Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

Be loyal.

Never pretend to be something you're not.

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

This is what Tasha is best at.

Good girl, Tasha.
