Summertime offers up so many simple pleasures to take advantage of. I think of napping on the patio with a good book, driving with the windows down and my favourite song turned up belting it out for the world to hear, and revelling in the succulence of local fruit. There are the sweet scents that float on a summer breeze – lilacs come to mind right now, but they change nearly every week, and the interplay of bird-songs singing in the rhythm of the universe.
The simple things, create the biggest pleasures in life.
Enter the Golden Doodle.
Baxter is another of those social media pets who has a significant following – people who enjoy animals enjoying the simple things in life. In the case of this social account, we get all the enjoyment from going to the beach, rolling in the grass, and drinking the bath water (and sometimes by drinking coffee). If we enjoy someone else enjoying the simple things in life, is that as good as enjoying the simple things ourselves? Anyway, Baxter clearly enjoys riding shotgun with the window down, breeze in his fur, and potentially catching bugs in his teeth.
