Hello my friends! More specifically, my American friends. It’s been hard scrolling through your social feed lately, hasn’t it? There is news coming at you from all sides, and it doesn’t seem like a lot of it is very good right now.  I know a lot of you are hurting, and are afraid and worried for what’s to come.

I want you all to know that we, the rest of the world, are feeling that too. With your current state of uncertainty, many of us don’t know what to do to help, and I know you understand that because many of you are feeling very helpless too. I am Canadian and our country is far from perfect, but lately I have been feeling a little extra grateful that I can call Canada my home.

In situations like this, I try to look at the things I can control. How can I make the world even a little bit better? Well I just happen to be a dog photographer and I have a lot of photos of happy doggies! It’s hard to be sad with these faces smiling back at you. So just for a few minutes, let’s take some advice from our canine friends. Let’s live in this moment. Take a scroll through these happy dog faces and I dare you not to smile. Keep your chin up, keep being you, and please accept this small bit of joy from your friends in the North.

If these happy dogs made your day a little better, please share this post and bring joy to a friend who might need a little today! If you want to see happy dogs on the daily, follow me on Instagram!
