Celebrating Friends! Happy National Friendship Day from all of us at Good Things!It’s National Friendship Day! We want to give a quick shout out to all our friends and Lovelies (that’s what we call you, our dearest Good Things supporters, if you haven’t already figured that out). If you haven’t already completed “Call an old friend” from the August To Do List, take some time out to wish a friend ‘hello’ and take a stroll down memory lane. Or, better yet, print out our Freebie Friday DIY Friendship Card and hand-deliver to that special pal.

As best friends for the past four years, here’s what we have to say about each other:

Cooper: Mama (Alexis) is the best. She always gives me treats and lets me give her lots of kisses throughout the day. In the morning, I wait until she’s awake before I lick her nose, otherwise, she gets cranky and pushes me away, and that hurts my feelings. But when I time it just right, she greets me with a big smile and she hugs me so tight. My favorite thing to do with Mama is to go ‘buh-bye.’ We drive to Starbucks and I get to stick my head out of the window and say ‘hi’ to all the people and furry friends we see on the streets. When we get to the coffee place, I like to wag my tail at my barista friends. Mama is proud of me every day and she takes good care of me. She sings to me and she’s my best friend.

Alexis: Cooper is my forever friend and pup. I named him long before I met him. When I dreamed of my future pet, I never imagined that I’d end up with this silly and sweet dog. My favorite thing to do with him is to teach him tricks. He gets so excited for the treat that he can’t concentrate on the trick! The best part of my day is when I come home from work. Coopie is so high from my return, he’s bouncing off all the furniture teeming with excitement for the chance to lick my nose while resting his paws on my face. It’s the best feeling to be so loved, missed, and wanted at home.
