Today, the virtue we'll be looking into is a very special virtue: creativity.
Of course I know what creativity is, but it doesn't hurt to fetch the exact definition of the word "creativity" from Google: the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work.
Ah, Google never fails to amaze me! Okay, so let me see...how does creativity tap into my own life? Here's a funny story about how I was creative one day a few months ago...it also shows I'm quite the thinker. My mom got me a puzzle dog bowl so I would chew up my food well and not eat so fast. It looks just like a big swirl, so I have to get my nose in there and learn how to quickly get the food. Yep, so it also helps with mental stimulation! Well, the first time my mom fed me in that bowl I found a loophole and was very proud of myself. I took the bowl in my teeth and flipped it upside down so all the delicious kibble scatted on the floor! Luckily I haven't done that since and I eat like a pro, but that's just an example to show I can be a creative guy. (Seriously, doggies, use this technique if your peeps force you to work for your food!)
Right, right, my story might be quite funny, but it doesn't change anything for you guys. Other than my bowl flipping technique of course, but that's besides the point. What does change you guys is the way you live in Blogville. You might not live in my house, but we exist in the same community of pets and their people. As a candy date, I can also find ways to be creative that don't involve flipping bowls over or doing some adorable puppy dog eye stunt for the last piece of bacon. It involves thinking outside the box to solve problems and have fun with an amazing community of doggies, kitties, and everything in between.
Creativity could mean hosting some sort of crazy and zany event. It could mean finding an out-of-the-box way to help a friend...spread the word about something...solve a problem...make friends. Without creativity, Blogville wouldn't exist.
After all, the peeps are using creativity when they dress me up in ridiculous tube steak costumes. Of course we all know love is the most impawtent thing that fuels Blogville, but without creativity, Blogville would be...I'll just say it: blah. But, because creativity exists, Blogville is an exciting, hilarious, loving, crazy, real place. Not only am I glad to be a part of it, but I'm also glad I can help the future of Blogville by running for mayor.
