My Reliable Handsome Fella

I could be referring to my husband with that title, and perhaps I ought to be, but in this case I'm describing my dog. Today, while out for a stroll around the yard with my camera, I noticed that when I stopped to do a few shots, he sat down and waited for me.  As soon as I let my camera hang loose around my neck and took a step forward, he picked himself up, and continued walking.  Once I noticed this behavior, I put it to the test several more times, and without fail, he waited for me to finish, keeping a close eye one me, and when I walked, he walked.  What a wonderful feeling to be so connected through this unconditional love my dog has for me.  If I could give him, (and others) half of what he gives me, I would consider myself enlightened.

  2. What a handsome boy and obviously much in love with his "mama".

    There is no greater joy than that of our animals when we come home to them.

  4. Ohe yes, I agree! When I was growing up we had a miniature Yorkie with the name of Sir Oliver Sedgewick Mitchell (not sure what my parents were thinking-haha), but we called him Ollie for short. He was my "best friend" and we did everything together. I would dress him up (poor thing) and often we would play hide-and-seek. I would hide somewhere and he wouldn't stop until he found me. A dog is such a special animal.

    Thanks for joining Roses of Inspiration again. It's such a joy to have you at the party! Hugs to you, sweet friend!

    1. What a sweet story about your dear Yorkie, and what a fantastic name! We have a cat name Georgia Winifred, but that's as fancy as we have ever been with naming a pet.

    Our pets made our life really complete and enrich it so much, just having at least one of them make us able to understand it and how much fortunate we are to live side by side with them, joining their wonderful worlds !
