Kindred Spirits: The Lighter Side

Periodically someone sends one of these internet photo collections that stimulate our hearts with joy.  I always enjoy sharing these with others.  It is the lighter side of the Kindred Spirits Project, yet an essential part as just seeing them brings a smile to our face, stimulates constructive neurotransmitters and  makes us and everyone we interact with a bit happier.  That is one great thing about the internet is how simple it is to share joy through photo’s so quickly with so many.

As sweet as this post is, I would add an important caveat.  Sharing these photographs here is not in anyway meant to support or endorse  inappropriate interactions between dogs and babies.  One has to have a  respectable trust level between individual dogs and babies.  We have all heard of destructive interactions that did not end well and one needs to use appropriate precautions and  awareness when considering having babies and dogs interact.  It is certainly a joy in appropriate, trustworthy  interactions.

With that caveat in mind, Enjoy watching the love between two beings!

P.S.  If any of these  photo’s require acknowledgement or credit to a particular person, company or whomever, please let me know and I will be glad to credit you or remove this beautiful sharing if desired.  Much gratitude to you, whomever,  for creating such  heartfelt photographs that brings joy to so many!

Instructions for properly hugging a baby:

1.. First,uh, find a baby.

2.. Second, be sure that the object you found was indeed a 

baby by employing classic sniffing techniques.

3.. Next you will need to flatten and rub your scent on the

baby before actually beginning the hugging process.

4.. The ‘paw slide’ Simply slide paws around baby and

prepare for possible close-up.

5.. Finally, if a camera is present, you will need to

execute the difficult and patented ‘hug,smile, and

lean’ so as to achieve the best photo quality.
