Dusty, our much-loved golden retriever is a lazy, yet very clever dog.

She sleeps most of the day, but as I’ve been working from home over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed a peculiar habit that she has.

In the morning, she sleeps near the windows in the back of the house.

As mid-morning approaches, she trudges to the hall-way and slumps down next to another large window.

And then, when the sun moves, she makes her way into our bedroom, sneaking onto our bed to catch the afternoon rays.

As a consequence, she is always nice and warm, even in our cold Bendigo winter.

What a clever dog!

Instead of worrying about the cold, or complaining about all of the places that are shaded, she just follows the sun.

And when it moves, she doesn’t whine or moan, she just gets up and finds another comfortable place to lie down.

It may seem as though life is tough and challenging at the moment, but the sun is always shining somewhere.

You can complain about the cold, or like Dusty, you can follow the sun.
