Puppies are good.

Puppies are good for kids, and puppies are even good for grown ups.  Our new Jack Russell Terriers were intended to help teach my children responsibility and give them some outdoor playmates.  It turns out that the little fellers are good for Mrs. Envirocapitalist as well.  They have already entertained me and stole my wife's heart.  They have played with the children outside and have already proven to not be gun shy.  They have laid on my wife's lap and chased each other around the front porch.  So far they are a hit.

I hope these little dogs build a bond with my kids and bring joy to them for a long time, but I have to admit it brings back memories from my youth of having dogs and has made me very happy.  The squirrels are in trouble next year and family outings such as hikes and camping trips are going to have a whole new dimension.

If you don't have any dogs I would strongly suggest you consider getting one. A well trained dog which serves a purpose brings more joy than any possession.  Any way Brave is sleeping on his back while Rosie chews on his ear so I had better go and oooh and aaaah with the rest of the family. Your pal the Envirocapitalist.


  1. Those two will steal any one's heart.

  2. Personally, I've always preferred dogs to people; they're more honest and will take a hug whenever you want to give one!

  3. Very Cute! Dogs are awesome. We went on a camping trip this weekend with our little Yorkshire terrier. Its amazing how something so little can bring people together so easily.
