In the northern hemisphere, today is the shortest day of the year. It’s solstice! And I couldn’t be happier. Because that means that tomorrow the days will become longer. Finally!
Honey doesn’t know much about astronomy. But she’s happy too. Siriusly! Because longer days bring more hours of doggy fun.
Here are just a few of the longer day joys we’re looking forward to:
♥ The return of outdoor, dog-friendly dining
♥ Quick poop scooping without feeling around for warm spots in the dark
♥ Occasionally being able to capture puppy fun without using a flash
♥ More shedding (really, it hides the dirt on the floors)
♥ Waking up to the sun without sleeping until noon
And to our friends in the southern hemisphere who are enjoying these things already? Thanks for sending the sun back.
Your Turn: Does solstice have any meaning for you? Does your dog care if it’s dark or light outside for most of the day?
