Oh Dog! DeDe here with this week’s tip to make you look and feel your best!
This week’s tip: Celebrate the joys of life!
There are plenty of reasons to celebrate throughout the course of our lives. Sure, there’s the big things, like that promotion at work, or the birth of a child. But there are many other reasons as well.
One problem that I see, though, is that we celebrate things that don’t hold much meaning, while ignoring things that are truly worth celebrating.
How many people are focused on sports teams they have no real connection to? Who celebrates the coming out of a new fashion line, or a movie, or a new restaurant?
Those are artificial and designed to create buzz and money. Things truly worth celebrating don’t try to suck you in and drain your wallet dry.
This week, I challenge you to find a reason to kick up your heels and have a party! Friend gets a new hairstyle? Child aces a math test? Someone tells a joke that made you laugh so hard your mood lifted? Celebrate!
These are the observances that make people feel truly happy, and when you feel truly happy, it shows!
And when you feel happy, you’re sure to never leave home without that essential beauty product- a smile!

I agree with you DeDe, let’s enjoy life! James Dean said: Dream as if you’ll live forever.Live as if you’ll die today.

Cats always know how to throw down!!!
This Shiva. I no can has great white sharkie meal wiz French fries and coke at McD’s because I has diet.
Just tell ’em to trade the fries for apple slices and have milk instead….. woo woo!
I must’ve looked beautiful last week. I was celebrating finding a macaroni noodle on the ground! And I ate it so fast, Mom couldn’t say, “Leave it.” YAY!
Love and licks,
That is DEFINITELY cause for celebration!!!
Whenever we celebrate things, we feel so happy for it, so you’re very true DeDe! This behavior obviously makes us look beautiful because of those happy faces!!! Have a lovely Saturday and Happy Gotcha Day eve to Rumpy! 🙂
DeDe has such a sweet face. A true beauty.
*blush* Thank you!
Jasmine kissed my foot…what can I say…I am pleased by little things. 🙂
You’re my kinda human, Granny!
DeDe, you are absolutely right! I am celebrating my cat, Lilith Kitten Mahoney. She is purring in my ear as I write this. Her purrs are more beautiful than all the trendy hairstyles and expensive clothes a human could ever buy or wear, and they don’t cost a thing!
Hear, hear! Thanks for the reminder of what’s important.
What great advice!!! Every day with Nylablue is a bonus & I have been following your advice….making each day a ‘special’ day for her & for me!! We each had our tuna-tuna this morning: hers straight up with added water & warm & mine mixed with Hellman’s mayo & basil & pepper in a sandwich….it was fun to sit with her as she ate ‘her’ tuna & I ate ‘my’ tuna…the little things are the BEST!!!!
Sherri-Ellen & Nylablue xo
Living minute to minute and celebrating each one creates a treasure trove of memories that take us through the tough times. 🙂
That is all so true and you have the best happy smile!
Thank you Brian!
We celebrate lots of things that others don’t find impawtant…like Mom finding a hurt female Lesser Goldfinch in our backyard and taking it to Lindsay Wildlife Hospital…we don’t know if she made it…but we sure did try our best for that bird
DeDe, that’s some excellent advice. Us cats are gonna celebrate just because we can. 🙂
CELEBRATE LIFE EVERYDAY!
Party time! Especially the weekend – ahh..
Dede you are such a wise doggie! 🙂
PS: Me and the Chedster, LOVE your hat. 😉
Way to go DeDe. You are so right! Great post.
Great post! Very wise and practical. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the reminder of what’s really important, DeDe. Celebrate life.
I will celebrate having awesome friends in the online pet community. 🙂
DeDe again some sage advice…I don’t connect to sport or fashion..its not my thing..but the Artichokes that have started to grow,the lady birds that have arrived to keep my roses safe,my pups finally able to enjoy a swim in their pool…these things are worth celebrating..and the fact that ,my babies are all safe and with me here that is indeed celebratory ! have a great day DeDe and we hope Rumpy enjoys his gotcha day..we made him a card 🙂 hugs Fozziemum xx
Awwww, Dede, your tips make your family to a little solar system where you can mirror each other inner warmth and make each other more comfortable and happy even if somebody feels not so well!
Very happy Gotcha Day for Rumpy!!!!
