7 Day Positivity Challenge - Day 2 - A Wednesday Walk

7 Days of Good Stuff

This challenge was started by @conradt, and I was nominated by @snowpea in on her 5th day. The purpose of this challenge is to spread around some positivity here on Steemit, and you know me, I never back down from a challenge! Well, almost never LOL!


What better way to spread some positivity than to share a walk with you? @tattoodjay did Steemit a heck of a service with this one. What makes this one positive? It was at the beck and call of my princesses...and a special guest doggie.


Some of you have been here long enough to remember a #dogurday post a did a while back that let you see the majesty of this beast of a Great Dane. I swear, he still thinks he's 6 months old and a lap dog. Extremely playful. He also outweighs me by about 50 pounds so walking him is truly a challenge in public. He is fairly well trained though and I've only been smashed into a tree and drug through a log pile once.

Gotta Love It

"Can we go? Can we go? Is that her? Can we go?" I try to imagine some of the things that goes through his head. As we waited for mama to meet us at the park, I think every car was the one he was waiting on to arrive. Or maybe it was a "these are my humans, don't get too close" attitude. I really am not sure, but that look right there coupled with the impatient look from Princess Freya is just priceless.

Daddy, Look! Ducks

He really is a character. He still has that "I can catch anything" demeanor about him. But, he is also kind of weird about the water. He will only wade in so far. Once the water touches his chest, that's it, he turns around and heads back to shore. He'll run and splash in shallow water like a 10 week old puppy, but he won't actually go swimming. Beyond me really. My other dog that goes fishing with me, Wenzday, she will swim all the way across the lake chasing a fish or what have you. Maybe he thinks he'll drown or sink? It is cute though.

A few more words and pictures -

Walking is both therapeutic to the body and mind. I'm not a health expert, but pretty sure I've read that on several occasions in various places. And what better way to enjoy your walk than with the ones closest to you? Be they pets or immediate bloodlines, they too, will relish the company and have a good time with you and each other. STeeM oN my peoples!

Your Turn:

  • Write a post about something you have to be postive about today - this could be anything from being thankful for your current situation, someone being nice to you, being thankful for your friends and family, or even being thankful for the oppurtunity you have been given here on Steemit - just keep it positive :)
  • Do this for 7 days in a row if you get nominated
  • Mention three people who should do this on each day.
  • Tag it with #sevendaypositivity (can try 7daypositivitychallenge but Steemit doesn't like numbers) and include these rules at the bottom of your post
  • Include a picture of something positive (related to your story if possible).
  • I nominate @thekittygirl, @huslein.slash & @icybc

Very lovely post... full of positive energy...
Good inspiration for all Steemians...

Already chosen you as a witness, dear @enginewitty...


Awww...thank you! Glad you enjoyed it :)


You are most welcome, friend...😀

Your princesses are just adorable... almost as cute as mine... 😁


Awww...thanks hun, we have to nurture those beauties so they can get their crowns later ;)


And wait for the day to explain to them the relationship between princesses, kings and queens... when they hit their teens, you know... lol!

Such a great read!

"...these are my humans, don't get too close" attitude.

I'm convinced. I want my own Maddux!


Ha ha! He is a totally loyal dog, you'd like him :)

I do appreciate you joined ng the walk again I walk on your own is good for Mind and body
A walk with family is that plus good for the soul

Love our walks with the princesses 👸



Oh ya man, glad you like them. I don't get solo walks, except when I have time for fishing by myself which is rare these days.


Free time and kids don’t often come to exist lol 😂

Thank you for your continued support of SteemSilverGold

Fishy wanted a water dog to go rafting with us. She finally got a half labrador puppy... one trip and we were DONE taking her on the water. Apparently the half that is lab is totally dormant, and the other half must have been pussydog... That dog had herself a 3 hour freak out, we were SO glad to get home with no holes in the raft!


LMAO! Ya my Wenzday has an equal proportion of pit/lab, thus the love of water. Good hunter too but also a real good guard dog. Not a fan of pussydogs personally lol!

A sweet thumbnail to click on.

The girls are adorable and you are so lucky to have three beauties! I hope your walk was a fun one!


It was thanks hun, glad I could share it with you :)


:) Oh, I do not envy you when they get older!!! :)

You have a beautiful family and I think it's awesome that you're all getting out and about together. <3


Thanks hun, we def are closer knit than most families. We love our tech, but still take time to breathe :)


That is awesome. Your kids and your relationships with flourish with taht kind of time and attention.

We have raised five kids (now ages 17-26) and we are all still very close. My kids still go out and do things together. We have family game nights most Fridays. I see my kids multiple times a week and we're all still close and talk about everything. I loved raising kids and enjoyed every step of the way. It is SO awesome to see someone enjoying this stage of the journey. It brings back great memories! :)


Awesome. We tried the family game night thing with the older ones but it didn't work out so well. We're all pretty competitive so feelings got hurt :P


Ha! I have some of the most competitve kids in the world. We never did game nights when they were younger as much (although the kids played incessantly themselves). Now days we mostly play games that are just fun and not really much about winning (Cards Against Humanity, Telestrations... I can't even remember the names of most of them!). We will play group games like Guesstures and Taboo, but its much easier to take a loss when you have a team. Plus, they're all adults now, so it is a little more sane! :) And a lot more inappropriate!

I thought I had already commented here, but apparently not! I was re-reading this post before responding to the challenge and noticed I'd never replied. Your daughters are so cute and precious! Love that photo! Maddux looks like a good member of the family, too! Excellent snapshot of your crew!

Thanks sweets, they all stay fairly happy😎
