My sister sent me this email that appears to be passing around the internet. It seems quite appropriate for this blog at this time. Pictures and captions regarding the human animal bond and inter-species connections always stimulate a smile. The joyous smile then subsequently creates a change in our neurotransmitters and neurohormones and thereby positive shifts in our behaviors and actions that fill us and thereby others with joy. May these photographs bring joy to your hearts and your families as the dynamic year of 2011 comes to a conclusion.
Blessings for a joyous New Year and may all your positive intentions manifest in ways beyond your wildest imagination and may they all be of benefit to all beings!
P.S. If this photographic composite requires 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 a heartfelt composite that brings joy to so many!
