We believe in the power of nature to replenish our spirit and restore balance to our lives. That’s why, each day from today through Christmas Day, we will post a “Moment of Chill”—a short video that will transport you to a place where you don’t have to do anything but watch, enjoy, and breathe.
Today’s #MomentofChill is from Trey Mullen of One Reel Media House, and it stars an adorable puppy working on his chompers. His eyes are otherworldly.
Chewing in curiosity-seeking puppies and young dogs is normal; exploration and learning happen through the mouth and the nose. Like human babies, puppies also chew during teething, maybe to facilitate the eruption of adult teeth, maybe for pain relief. And juvvies use playful, active chewing to displace energy—in some dogs, It keeps the jaws strong and the teeth clean in adult dogs. It combats boredom and relieves mild anxiety. Wild and domesticated dogs have spent hours chewing bones and sticks for thousands of years. In short, canines are made to chew.
And if you’re having a rough day and feel the need for some new chill NOW, visit the Moment of Chill homepage.
