Today, we take a break from Marketing concepts, Innovation principles, and Business discussions to learn a lesson from a six year old.


A couple of months ago, I introduced you to Poppi, our six year old YorkiePoo. Today, we say goodbye to Poppi. We lost our little Poppi dog last week in one of those freak accidents that makes you wonder how the earth manages to turn on its axis and how we keep from spinning off into space. It was sudden, it was tragic, and it made us want to pause the world.

Of course, there is no pause button.

No. There was work to be done, meetings to be held, classes and tests, and “life” to attend to. As much as we wanted to, we could not pause the world. Life had to go on, no matter what.


But what if there was a Paws button…


Pets, especially dogs, have a way of making your day. Our Poppi made us laugh every single day. She made us feel special. She made us feel loved. How cool would it be if we could just hit the Paws button when things start going sideways?

Poppi and the Balloon

Try it next time you feel a little too much stress, a little too much whatever. Hit the Paws button and be like Poppi…

  1. Be happy.
  2. Be optimistic.
  3. Enjoy life…every second.
  4. Love.
  5. Love unconditionally.
  6. Always chase the ball.

Now, let’s go get that ball…
