Sometimes we have bad days. Those sad times when you feel discouraged about everything in particular...

I've recently come up with a brilliant idea (although I'll concede that many others have done this before me).

When you need some cheering up, all you've got to do is google "puppies."
"Cute puppies" works, too. Or even "lab puppies" if you prefer those. Choose your breed and get googling.

Warning: puppy googling has the potential to increase depression and discouragement if you do not have a puppy and really really want one. Proceed at your own risk.

Here are some puppies that I liked:

Write on!


  1. I love the chocolate lab one :) We have a black lab/Great Dane mix puppy. He cheers me up daily with his goofy shenanigans.

  2. I am going through a very deep depression. Puppies are the least of the things that would cheer me up. I thought it would get easier, but the depression is getting worse. It has only been a little over a month. It is the silly things that get to me. I was looking at the photos from my camera, and there popped up her picture, and it got me. Taking a shower, and using the last of her shampoo. Feeling guilt to be able to go anywhere I want any time I want, and it gets to me. I think it was because before, I always thought, when she is gone, then I can do that, but not now. And now it is now, and it hurts. I don't understand it. At least the denial stages is leaving, so this stage is more painful. What is the next one? I don't even want to know. It is also hard when Dale keeps coming over and asking about the list of stuff he got from the sisters of the stuff they want. Most of it is stuff they made, but it still bugs me, and I don't really know where it all is, and don't have the slightest inkling of wanting to even look for them. I keep trying to get my house plants outside to get them some nice growing in, but it gets so cold, I have to bring them all back in, and that is a mess in the living room on the card table. I snowed yesterday, mostly just in the mountains where the ski resorts are, but it even made it on Leno, it snowed in May in the US. I find my spelling abilities leaving. I guess some are typos, but words I thought I knew I spell wrong. I think it makes me fear getting what Grandma had, cause my mind doesn't work the way it used to. I forget lots of stuff. There are lots of things I wanted to do, like make stuff. But if it is out of sight, it is out of mind, and I don't remember wanting to make it. or I start on a bird house, and it has been over a year, and it still is not completely finished. Then I end up spending more than it would have if I would have just went and bought the stupid thing, and I wanted to make it to save money, and it didn't work. I did that with a music stand too. I didn't want to buy one, so I designed and made one, and it was cheaper, but it didn't work in a group setting, not stable enough, so I ended getting one on ebay, and it just made me more depressed because the poor seller ended up paying more for shipping than I paid for the whole thing. I still don't have the door back on the bathroom yet. I need to get to work, and I am so much more tired in the morning than at night, and I don't sleep at all the first 3 or 4 hours, and it is so hard to stay in bed when I am not sleeping. Then when it is time to get up, I am just starting to sleep, and don't want to get up. I think I will buy some b12 and melatonin, that is if I remember when I am at the store. I am glad puppies cheer you. I need to find something that cheers me. Right now, they are few and far between. But I am not really looking forword to the next stage of grieving.

  3. Awwww, I loved the puppy pictures. I don't have one and I really want one but looking at those adorable faces could never make me sad.
