Oh Dog! DeDe here with this week’s tip to make you look and feel your best!
I have a confession to make: I am having a hard time with Jen. Seems she’s all worried about what’s going to happen to me.
Silly human! If she spends all her time worrying about tomorrow, she’s going to miss today! And today, I’m still here!
Truth is, we have nothing but what is in this very instant.
What happened a moment ago is history.
What will happen in the next moment is the future.
Spending our time worrying about those two causes us to miss what is now.
So ya want to look and feel your best? Then enjoy what is today, and let tomorrow sort itself out.
And make sure you face today with that essential beauty product- a smile!

Mom’s favorite radio station always says this and we love it: Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that is why we call it the present. A great way to think about life, sort of like us dogs think. It is hard for humans but they would be happier if they could do that.
Thank Dog they have us around to keep reminding them!
Right on Emma!
DeDE, I just love you. Today you have well and truly inspired me. Humans have a hard time with the life for today, enjoy the moment thing. She worries about you and I and others who love you, are concerned. But I am making you my SMILE role model. Live in the moment, look for crumbs, and smile – the most beautiful beauty accessory. Stay strong dear heart.
It’s all about the now, my friend. And for right now, I am plotting to grab a mouthful of that cat food that fell on the floor! woof!
You got that right – few things better than grabbing food from the cats – the floor means, it’s up for grabs!!!! 🙂 🙂
Hey DeDe! 🙂 🙂 Look at the smiles you put on our faces! 🙂 🙂 They are especially for you – because you are AWESOME!! 🙂 What you said is so true! One should always live in the here and now instead of worrying about the future! Bless your cute little heart, sweety! All the best to you! ❤
xoxo Roxy & Tigerlino 🙂 🙂
Hey, you don’t see cats laying around feeling bad about breaking a vase yesterday, do ya?
A lovely post De De and you are so very right, why worry about tomorrow when who knows what it will bring for us? Yesterday has gone and we survived it, today is now and we are doing okay, tomorrow is, well who knows what tomorrow will be?
Nope. All we gotta do is be there for whatever unfolds. Woof!
Great advice as always, DeDe. Humans don’t live in the moment as well as us doggies do. We have to constantly remind them. 🙂
Love and licks,
Yeah, and to teach them to appreciate garbage. Woof!
I love you, DeDe, you’re so wise. Give Jen a big lick for me!
I love you too! woof!
It’s so hard for us humans to quit looking back at our past mistakes and from worrying about tomorrow. We can learn a lot from dogs. Thanks De De.
Yes, I think we were put here on this earth to teach those lessons!
You’re absolutely right DeDe and living in the moment is the very BEST way to live…..besides, you have a whole lot more living and loving to do so GO FOR IT GIRL! Every time I see your smile I am reminded that life is good if we just smile and carry on.
Love you DeDe
Life is good, Sammy, so let’s get out there and enjoy it!
Enjoy the best of every moment of today DeDe and Jen, xox Hugs for a very special pair.. 🙂
I’m going to, but Jen? Eh, she’s a work in progress! woof!
Dear DeDe, I love you, I really love you and admire you so much. You’re very brave lady dog and always encourage us with your great advice. I’m so happy that I can see your lovely pictures and read your wonderful post at this very moment! Awwww…DeDe…Thank you very much for being here!!! Hugs hugs xxxxx
Kevin, you make me so happy too! The world is a much better place because you’re in it. Woof!
I had a 80 year-old volunteer who would say every day he came in, “Every day is a good day”! He did that until he was 90 and loved life, his friends, family, animals… I live by that example and thank you for helping me remember him today and during some tough times.
Yes, these are the people who make an impression on our lives. I’m glad he’s still there in your heart to help you.
very true yet at times hard to follow . When I walk Fredrieka she is suppose to keep her head up and walk forward. I suppose that is what we do one step at a time
Yep. I would have to say that’s right. Woof!
that’s right DeDe…we only have now…no one knows what tomorrow brings. Pawkiss 🙂
Nope, but I sure hope it brings cookies! woof!
Thanks Granny! Woof!
You are SO right DeDe ! Live in the moment and for the moment.
Enjoy what is happening now.That’s how memories are made 🙂

Thank you! I’m not worrying about how many days I have. I’m making sure I make the most of this one!
DeDe you are so insightful.
Us old dogs have much wisdom to impart, don’t we? woof!
Beauwooowooootiful as usual DeDe! xoxoxoxoxo, Ku
No matter whether you are unhappy about yesterday or worried about tomorrow, you are always squarely set in today and only what you do today can influence how you feel about yesterday and tomorrow..
OH so BEAUTIFULLY put. THAT is the Attitude and mindset that we ALL need to have.
And it’s a great visual image to get you out of your funk too! woof!
Great message, DeDe! You are such a wise pup. Much love, The Scottie Mom.
Thanks Scottie Mom! Woof!
You are so right DeDe! We should always remember that. I am praying that you will have plenty of ‘tomorrows’ to come. Bless you. xoxoxo
Thanks Fiona! Woof!
That’s the same as Nina she feels the same way!xx Speedy
Nina sounds like my kinda woman! woof!
That’s the attitude, wise DeDe!!! 🙂

That’s a great reminder DeDe… I’m off to live today with Boomer and Dottie now!
Good idea Emily! woof!
Carpe Diem, Y’All!!!
Woof! Woof! Woof!
Awesome DeDe. You would be the “cat’s meow” if you were a cat. Instead your are “Dog Knows Best”! I am just blown away at your post and I can feel love for you growing even more by leaps and bounds all over the internet. Hugs all around from us.
Awwww……. thanks Jobi and Fisher! Woof!
DeDe you are a very smart dog. Thank you for reminding us to live in the moment and to treasure it. We send you and your Mom big hugs. Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S)
woof! Thank you!
ahhhh…DeDe…how ever did you become so very wise precious girl? What is ‘now’ is what ‘is’…you are so very clever and right…and right now…I am smiling at you and Bubba cleaning Jen’s floor…*giggle*
What would Jen do without us! woof!
DeDe, that’s better than any thing I have seen about it and it’s to the point. xox
I’m a dog that gets right to it! woof!
you are so right, DeDe!
Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie
Whoa! That coming from cats is high praise indeed!
Right on, DeDe! Words of wisdom to the max. Wuv U. Max, Bella, & bipeds
You are a very wise dog! But human hearts are fragile.
That’s a great attitude, Dede. Please give en a hug from us.
Woos – Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning
Oh DeDe, once again you are SO right. Carpe Diem, sweet friend! Much love and big hugs to you!
No truer words could be spoken, DeDe. Now, get Jen to listen!
So true sweet girl…all we have is now and now is all that matters.. a hard thing for us humans to get our minds around..love to you all Fozziemum xxxxx
Excellent advice Dede! you’re a delightful doggie…(and coming from me, that means a lot)!
Bones and sofas to you dude!
You’re an angel! I’m sure dear Jen knows what to do, but sometimes it is good to lose yourself a little, but on one condition! We should be keeping it for a short while, just to get the negative energy out of the system.
Then the sun will rise again.
You are very clever and beautiful.
May you be healthy and happy 🙂
Kisses and Hugs
Yelloz and Servant Z.
It is hard to not worry

DeDe the wise and wonderful. Big hugs and smiles. May the new year be bright and wonderful for us all, but yes, today is great….except Molly should stop staring at the squirrel in the palm tree – he’ll out wait her…the German has already wandered off for a nap.
HUGS DeDe for keeping all on track with what’s important
