A Dog’s Advice

Right before Christmas, my mother-in-law told me about an expression she heard that she said makes her laugh every time she thinks about it. She couldn’t remember the exact phrase but said it was some piece of advice about dogs and how they handle stress.

I searched online and finally found the quote, although the original source of this interesting tidbit remains a mystery.

She likes basset hounds, so I found a cute black-and-white cartoon of one on the web. The little sketch and quote were printed on watercolor paper I sized for my printer. After adding a modicum of color with watercolors, I placed the little 3x5-inch picture in a magnetic frame for the fridge.

It made for a cute stocking stuffer and has become my mother-in-law’s favorite saying when things are a bit too much.

This advice is probably easier to handle for men than for women, but I love the saying!

That is one cute saying!! Perfect or a fridge magnet as you'll get to laugh whenever you're in the kitchen. For me that would be often!!
