My Dog Has the Right Idea

John Sovec

Sleepy DogI think my dog has the right idea. She always seems content. Her biggest desire each day is to lie in the sun and soak up all the warmth coming off the bricks on the patio. She will be lying there when I run out in the morning to go teach a yoga class. She will be there when I come back and rush around the house to get ready to go and see my therapy clients. She will be there when I come home in the evening exhausted but happy from the activities of my day.

And that is when she will deign to raise her head, and throw me a glance with her deep brown eyes as if to say, “Yeah, it really was a tough day for me too”. I then feed her, walk her and, before you know it, the household is getting ready for bed. So she gathers herself up, meanders over to her bed, circles a few times to find just the right position, and off to sleep she goes. I think I want to take one of her days tomorrow. My dog has the right idea, she embodies yoga.

    My dog has her favorite spots in my house. It depends on the energy flow on that particular moment of a particular day, she chooses where to lay down. I totally agree with dogs circling a few times in a spot to find the right position before lying down. They naturally feel the positive energy coming from the earth and connecting to it, and receive in into their bodies.
