So I was watching 'Amelie' on IFC the other day and it got me to thinking... Who do I know that goes out of their way to bring joy to people they may not even really know and make it a habit?

First thought?

My cute and cuddly furbaby, Sam. He's a retired greyhound and he's been in the family now 3 whole years! He's 5 1/2 years young and absolutely the most wonderful companion ever. Of course, I'm a little biased.

He likes to sleep in new and interesting positions, most of which leave him resembling a cashew, walnut or pecan. Very zen. :) And yes, when people say they are '45 mph couch potatoes'* they really aren't kidding.

[Please Note: The couch potato moniker does not apply when the doorbell rings, people come home/over, and when the leash is jingled. Also there are periods when he feels as though running through the house at your heels is the absolute best way to get a treat. And yes, he always gets his treat.]

Greyhounds ROCK! :)

Love the fact that you adopted a grey hound. I am so impressed with this. It lookslike they make pretty good pets.
