It's easy to appreciate the earth if you live in Maine. This is a state that lives up to the hype of its beauty. In honor of Earth Day today my baby (he's a cairn terrier - like Toto on "Wizard of Oz") and I walked along and through 6 miles of lawn and trees. Dogs love grass, especially mowed grass so today was heaven. If you're spending too much time inside, and forgetting the gift of walking and gift of watching a dog find miles and miles of mowed lawns .... go outside.
And if you need more ways to help the earth, use reusable grocery bags and consider reducing or eliminating use of plastic water bottles.
