Do you have a happy place? Larkin does.
Every morning there is a crush to get outside. I barely am allowed time to put on a robe and use the restroom before opening the door for the dogs to go out and greet the day.
Larkin grabs his toy and waits by the back door. He runs out and goes straight to “his” corner of the grass or his bed and lays down, holding the toy in his mouth. Doesn’t even make usage of a pee post first.
THIS is his happy place. He will lay there for an hour or two. Sometimes he’ll get up and move from one spot to the other, or change out the toy he’s holding but then he settles right back down and enjoys his morning.
It is such a joy to watch him.
