I have a 10 month old boxer and he LOVES life. Whenever I’m having an off day, he has a way of making it better with his goofiness. He’s always playing and enjoying life. He doesn’t dwell on what happened yesterday, he doesn’t worry about tomorrow — it’s all about the NOW. That’s why this has so much meaning to me.
The video description of Savour Every Moment tells us, “Dogs and cats seem to possess some inner secret to enjoying life. They’re able to savour every single moment of the day; all the fun moments, and the goofy ones. The playful moments, the loving moments. If our pets could talk, they might tell us: ‘When you’re happy, don’t forget to tell your face. Napping is beauty sleep for the soul. Eat like nobody’s watching.'”
This short film created by Keith Hopkin made it’s debut at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, and it became an overnight success with animal lovers around the globe. The film was shot on location in sand, snow and underwater with help from famed photographer Seth Casteel and a musical score by Carly Comando.
While it’s easy overlook those little things our pets love so much, whether it’s dive-bombing into a pool, waiting hours at the door just you to come home or cuddling up to you and giving you some love, it’s an important lesson we humans need to remember.
Without any words at all, it’s able to evoke such beauty, wonder and calmness by simply following our beloved pets doing what they do best — living in the moment!
