Is there a challenge enticing you, but your lack of confidence makes you shy away from even trying? Well, do you realize you are allowing negative voices to control your actions? You are giving them free rent in your brain. How kind of you. Kidding. Only You know what your capabilities are without having anyone remind you, not even yourself! So, you should evict those voices! Now! Don’t wait! But it’s not easy, is it? We’re too quick to second guess ourselves, so we listen…well, listen to this…
Copper thinks he’s a lap dog. He has no idea that he is tall and lean, weighs 75 lbs. and is all muscle. Hence, he is not a lap dog! Truth is, because he’s confident in how he feels and because he sees himself as a chihuahua, he gracefully curls his body and folds his long legs to fit into the tiniest space – especially in the spotlight of the sun. He is the most faithful sun worshiper. And he’ll place himself between two pieces of furniture and lean. Yes, he’s a leaner. He leans on us when he sits next to us. He leans against the sofa and chairs and anything else that will hold his weight.
So, be like Copper and just do what you set your mind to. Don’t second guess yourself. Don’t give those voices free rent anymore! You have more important data to occupy your mind and Dogs really do know best, don’t they? 🙂
Stand tall on your own two feet – don’t give doubt the upper hand. And observe your furry family members who truly know how to live a life of happy!

Aww… Lauren, your dog is so cute… 😊 Stay blessed 💐❤️
Thanks, Diana. He doesn’t know how cute he is, either, but he does know best. 🙂 Have a good day and take good care! 💗🐶
Copper knows best! 🙂 Sharing… xo
Yes, he does, Bette. 😉 And thanks so much for sharing! Hugs 💕🌻
Wise Copper!!!! Wise advice and oh Copper you’re the cutest leaner!!!!! 🐾😘🤗❤
He is so wise and doesn’t even know it. 😉 And his leaning cracks us up all the time. Thanks, Marina! I wish our puppies could meet. They’d probably have a blast playing together. 🥰💗🐶
Wouldn’t that be nice!!!! They’d have a ball …and so would we! 😉😘😘😘🐾🐾🤗
I wish we could be like Copper… carefree and non-judgmental. 🙂 Still learning.
I wish the same, Balroop. It truly is a dog’s life in so many ways. 🙂 Let the learning continue and have a good day! 🥰🐾
Great advice, Lauren. Lucy also thinks she is a lap dog so to study our dogs and go do likewise is the best advice ever. 😁
I’m glad you agree, John, and our dogs are full of wisdom for us to learn from. 🙂
Finding the sunny spot of the house to sleep is the key to a happy and toasty life. 🙂
It sure is, Jill. Copper will lay down in the middle of a room if that’s where the sun is. 🙂
I’m going to go find a place to sleep in the sun right now … 😉
I hope you found that warm spot! 😉
Good encouragement Lauren. Not always easy to quiet all those voices but we have to keep trying. Copper is so cute but I can imagine he is quite heavy when hes leaning in. dont they just love to do that!
Thanks, Allison, and Copper is blushing. 😉 You’re right, it’s not easy to quiet those voices, but if we don’t, their effect could be detrimental. And yes, Copper is heavy when he leans; it’s just too funny. He thinks he’s light as feather. 🙂
Excellent observations 🙂
I’m glad you think so, Ian. Thank you! 🙂 🐶
If we all thought like a dog, the world would probably be a better place.
I agree, Binky. Have a good weekend!
Oh yes, never second guess your beliefs. Great post!
Love the message and the sentiment. So cute. ❤
I’m glad you enjoyed this, Debby. Copper is always happy to provide inspiration. 🙂 💕
No doubts! ❤
Such a cute dog! 😍
Thank you so much and Copper says, “Woof so much!” 🙂
Thank you! 💙
