The temptation comes to many, early or late, to sink into the attitude of regarding life as a little thing.  Some become cynics.  Some become wholly callous.  Some cease existing themselves.  Others lapse into habits they formerly would have condemned.  This temptation to degenerate into looking upon life as a matter of little moments must be fought and overcome.  Perhaps the most effective safeguard against drifting into this deadly mental state is to associate freely with children and other young people.  Our life can become big only when we look upon living as something affecting not only ourselves.
   —  B. C. Forbes

I walk our family dog “Shiva” most every day. She loves sniffing fences, grass, trees and posts of various types (including fire hydrants). Most times she takes a “little” longer than I would like her to and I give her a slight tug on the leash or say her name to get her to move along to the next smell. I think from now on I may give her a count of 10 instead of a count of seven. After all, I should allow time for the comments as well as for the blog post.

The actual post date was 19 February 2017.  I’m not sure how to create a link to the specific posting.
I do NOT own the rights to the image, I have not asked permission to repeat it, and am I NOT hoping to make any profit from showing it.  It is merely being used because it made me laugh out loud.
If you find the comic amusing, please visit the creator’s (Brooke McEldowney) post at gocomics.com and give it a “like”.   Oh, and click on the image to see a larger version / more readable   —  KMAB]
