Late summer contemplation

The sun was warm on my fur. The air was growing cooler. Fall was in the air.

The grass tickled my belly and paws. I closed my eyes and let the smells of my Park fill my senses.

And I wondered - what is the meaning of life? What purpose do I, a Dog, have in this world?

Am I here to leave pee markings? To chase the squirrels and raccoons in our yard? To growl and bark when there is a noise in the house? To chase running dogs, to bite at the hose, to lick clean the kitchen floor?

What is my purpose? What makes me a good dog?

And then I opened my eyes and looked at my person.

And I realized that this is the meaning of my life. My people. I am here to make them happy. To give them love, to make them feel whole.

I am a Good Dog.

Momma told me what you said, about the meaning in your life is to make your humans happy. I think that's true. But, Momma says her joy comes from making me happy (and Cracker too I suppose).
It really is a win/win for all of us isn't it?

I agree with you. Your purpose is all those things!
