One Easy Step To Make Your Life Better (Hug Eko Every Day - Bucket List #10)
The world is a daunting place. Especially on Mondays. Between work, responsibilities and expectations, just making it through the day in one piece is an adventure all of its own. If I told you there was a product guaranteed to always put you in a better mood, I would have more people lined up outside my store than Apple does. No such product exists, but luckily there is something that works even better - our pets!
No matter how I'm feeling and no matter where I am, a hug from Eko makes me smile and makes me feel like life is just a bit more manageable.
Eighteen months ago, Eko and I began our daily tradition of hugging it out
Emily got in on the action as well. As you can see, hugs with Eko have a 100% chance of making you smile :-)
Even as Eko grew, he was still happy to give a good hug
(This photo was taken before our road trip, but you can see by the dinosaur bump on his head that Eko had always been quite adventurous)
Eko and Emily show that you can never be too big for a hug!
If you can't pick your pet up, hugs on the couch definitely count!
So when you're rushing through your busy day, make sure to take a minute to give your pet a hug. You're guaranteed to have a better day - and if pet-hugs were a product I could sell, they would definitely come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. In fact, I am such a proponent of pet-hugs that Eko and I have decided to start a Public Service campaign to encourage all pet owners to join the movement. What do you think of our first poster?
Next up: a prime time commercial
I'll catch you guys tomorrow - Eko looks like he could use a hug!
