That pooch is so dog gone adorable, Paul.  I was trying to remember what you named it?

Good morning Paul. The lessons we can learn from children are priceless and yet the majority ignores the lessons! So sad! Enjoy your day.

Hello Paul - while the words in this quote are quite appropriate to improving our everyday life, I seem to keep returning the photo in your post for some reason.

Good morning, Paul... that pup is beyond adorable! I just want to scoop him up and hug him! (I'm always like a child at Christmas time, myself.)

Good morning, Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS 
There are many occasions when being a child again would be a good thing... without the tantrum phase.  LOL

Hi Paul- I wanted to reach through the computer and give that cute face a hug. And loved the quote...it's like taking a once a year vitamin pill to keep the child-like spirit in us.
