See The World Through Your Pet’s Eyes

For some strange reason, curiosity has a bad rap in the animal kingdom – especially when it comes to felines.  In my opinion, it is our pets’ curiosity which makes them, and the our day-to-day world, so interesting.

Every morning Eko wakes me up with a wet kiss and furiously wagging tail.  We have the same morning routine every day but he doesn’t care – the world is an interesting place and he wants to see it!  Is the world the same as yesterday?  The only way to find out is to check it out.  I love that Eko’s eager curiosity extends to even the most mundane tasks – like opening the freezer.

“Anything in the freezer for me this time!?”

I also appreciate Eko’s curiosity in matters he completely does not understand.  When I work out at home Eko will lay on my mat – not because it’s comfortable, but just because he knows I’m doing something with it.  He figures it must be something good.  I eventually had to break down and get Eko his own mat.

Eko’s attitude seems to be “Why are we doing this?  Who cares, I’m in!”

“Still not sure what we’re doing here Will, but I’m sticking around to see if it will get good”

Eko’s curiosity also reminds me that I get to define the world as much as it gets to define me.

Everything is a dog toy if you use some imagination

Of course, curiosity also is a great way to learn more about your friends

And curiosity helps you discover whether something is dog agility equipment or public art.  Sometimes it is both

Sure, we all have a daily routine, but just because it is the same doesn’t mean that it has to be boring. I don’t plan on giving up my morning grumblings any time soon, but I will do my best to approach each day with Eko’s enthusiasm and curiosity.  It is guaranteed to make life more fun and enjoyable.  Tomorrow is never guaranteed, so I appreciate our pets reminding us to cherish today, no matter how ordinary it may seem.

Wouldn’t it be great to live everyday like ‘in the eye’s of a dog’. That’s one thing I really miss about not having a dog, the way they enjoy small things or big things. As usual, loved all the photo’s, especially Eko peeking out from the staircase.

Very true ! I love watching Buddy when we go some where or do something. Even if we had been there before or done it before, he acts like its the first time. The look in his eyes are just precious ! Even going for a car ride, the way he sits up on the seat looking and watching everything, like he is paying attention to where we are just in case we get lost and he has to drive back .
I think everyone should have a dog, for they to can experience everything we do and to love them as we do, and to help the shelters have less dogs and save there life to !
Thanks Will & Eko !

Love this! “Tomorrow is never guaranteed.” Lola lost her best pal yesterday and it reminded me not to take my time with her for granted. She enjoys every minute and she inspires me to do the same.
