Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Dog days...

We've had our corgi boy nine years now. Sheesh...where did the years go? He was five months old when we brought him home. He laid on Jim's chest for the first hour after we arrived home, both in the recliner. He listened to Jim's heartbeat, and Jim is still his favorite person. He loves me too, but Daddy...is da' man to ol' Jakie boy. Why can't they invent a way for dogs to live longer? Dog years are too-darn-short!

My girl Two is also 9 years old. I've been worrying about her for probably 2 years now thinking she is getting old. I had one dog that lived to be around 19 years old! That boy lived a good long life! He was all mine!

I had a chihuahua who was my first fur baby who lived to be 14. I still miss her dearly and she has been gone for 6 years. I too wish they could live longer!

Here's to many more years for our pups!

Hugs,
Angela

My little baby will be 10 yrs old this week, I don't know what I'd do with out my little ChiChi...she was hit by a car when she was 2 and broke her back in the hip area,,,,and I'd just had my first knee surgery she sat in my lap for days on end. Both recuperating together.

It is so wonderful to see how you love your pets! I can hardly wait to meet you all...well someday Sista! My daughter has bad allergies..and we've tried a few times to have a pet...but she can't live on Benadryl...so...SIGH...we have no furry friends!
When she was younger she once tried to keep a kitten "hostage " in her room...she was actually hiding him...strange feeling to be home alone when she went to school and to hear a sweet little meowing
comong from her closet....sigh! Jim dreams of the day he can have an old english sheep dog...
After your post today...and celebrating Jakies birthday...give the boys a treat from me..gosh when they meet me...they are going to love me too aren't they! Hugs...And have a great week! Did you have your sale yet?

I know what you mean - dogs are so loyal and sweet. Is yours sick or you just thinking about him?

Yep, time flies . . . too quickly. My angel, a Corgi by the name of Woody, has been gone for 15 yrs (OMG!) and I still think of him at least 1-2x/wk.

I keep saying I won't cry one tear when my 2 giant, stinking dogs die...but that's a lie, they are part of the family...even with all the drooling, chewing, belching, barking, shedding and emission of various poisonous gasses, I love 'em.

I agree with you that the dog years are way too short! We are on our 3rd dog and she is 11... I always swear no more but I can't resist their unconditional LOVE! Have a fun day!

It's rotten when we lose them. My little spaniel, Savannah Leigh, passed away at the age of 15, so I think you've got some time left♥☺ No one wants to be around me when one of my animals dies because I make noises that mother nature never intended a human being to make. My soul is crushed and a cold wind freezes my heart.

I live alone, so my animals, other than my boys and their families, are my life. And, I can't live without the furry ones at my feet so guess I'll go through the heartbreak many, many more times.

I think you still have lots of time☺

Y'all come back now...

Y'all come back now...

Everyone is special, and counts!
