Spring has come to Minnesota at last, and the whole state seems to have come to life. But among all God’s creatures, I do not think anyone is more grateful than my dog, who grinned up at me every couple of minutes on our usual walk. She may have been trying to give me positive reinforcement – “Good job! Let’s have more days like this!” Or maybe she was just full of joy. Either way, her happiness multiplied mine. In all seasons, I am grateful beyond measure for this dog!
