Barkly’s Thoughts on River Phrases

By September 30, 2021October 5th, 2021No Comments

Hello my two-legged friends. I want to share a story with you that could be a bit embarrassing. But I trust you to be kind in the midst of my vulnerability. I once had a bladder infection. And I peed in the house a bunch. I was embarrassed and didn’t want to talk about it or deal with it. I tried to avoid dealing with the painful and messy issue. Yet my hooman wouldn’t let me. He made me address the issue and took me to the vet. In no time at all, the medicine set things right and I no longer had that issue. As my hooman and I were talking later he told me it was ok to be embarrassed. He also told me that all of us – human and canine have problems occasionally. He said, “if you have a pulse, you have issues. ”No one is completely free from the issues of life. They might look different, but everyone has issues needing to be dealt with. That gave me peace of mind and removed some of the embarrassment. And dealing with my issue freed me up to fulfill my purpose.
