Most of the time when we post videos like this, I have to take a step back and take care of the thing I got in my eye that made it rain all over my face. But this video just gives me all the smiles.

Dogs are such determined, powerful souls. No matter what obstacles life throws at them, they always find a way to bounce back. All you have to do is give them a stick, a ball, a chew toy, a few scratches on their head, a field to run in, a car window to look out and they are overjoyed. My dog is almost 13 years old and slowly going blind but I swear, you'd never know it because she's just as happy as a little puppy. OK now I feel a few drops on my face—must be a leak in the roof.
