It's the middle of the week and you're in a real slump. The week has been a disaster and it's only Wednesday. You still have three more days to make it to the weekend. So how do you get through hump day? Let your favorite canine help brighten your day. There is nothing like a big doggie grin to make the world look like a much better place.

Sign Up For a Class

Why not check out some classes where you can spend some quality time with your pooch? Agility, fly ball, obedience, or whatever would strike your dog's fancy might be a great deal of fun for both of you. Not only will training exercise your dog's mind and body, but it will also strengthen your relationship. Not to mention it will give you both the opportunity to make some new friends.

Go to the Dog Park

Take a few hours and go to the dog park. If your dog is well-behaved with other dogs, he'll love to spend some time running and socializing. Just watching dogs play is a great way to put a smile on your face. Your dog will love playing with new doggie friends and who know who you might meet at the park. If you're looking for the human love of your life, what better place to look?

Get Your Photos Taken

Book a photo session with your dog. Check and see if your local pet store has a photographer that does photo sessions or another local studio will allow you to bring in your dog. Or just have a friend bring a camera and take some shots. Why not do a glamour session? Dress up and immortalize your favorite friendship.

Bring Your Dog to Work

If your boss will allow it, think about bringing your dog to work for the day. If your dog is well-behaved and you don't bother your co-workers, it might be fun for everyone to have a mascot for the day. You'll have the benefit of some canine moral support and a change of pace might make the rest of week just fly by.

Short on time?

Even if you don't have a whole afternoon or evening to spend with your dog, you can find a little pick me up that can do you both a world of good. A little one-on-one time can go a long way. You'll have the zen of Fido to get you through the week and your dog will have the enjoyment of your full attention and love. Here are some ideas:

  • Turn up the stereo and dance with your dog. Your favorite song and a dance with your best friend is the perfect pick me up for a blah day.

  • Take a nap together. What could be more refreshing and soul-soothing than a doggie-nap. A cuddly powernap may help you get through the day.

  • Play a quick game of fetch in the yard. Stretch your arm and your pooch's legs. A little laughter and fun in the sun is great for everyone.

  • Teach Rover a new trick. Training is the perfect way to bond with your dog. Treats for tricks will make everyone's day.

  • Give your best friend a doggie massage. There is nothing more soothing than petting your favorite dog. Make it a massage and you will make his day.

  • Bring home a new toy. Take a few extra minutes to stop on the way home and pick up a great new dog toy. It will be something you can both enjoy.
