Puppy Love

Have you ever loved a dog?  It's pretty crazy love.  Has a dog ever loved you?  That's pretty crazy love too.

On a recent Sunday Ikey was sick.  The kind of sick he was moving VERY slow, creeping around, wouldn't jump up in my lap, wouldn't even walk down the stairs.  Even though it was a Sunday I called the vet. He was in a lot of pain.  On examination he determined it to be his back.  He gave him some medication and in a couple of days he was 'good as new'.  I don't really think that was it, his back.  However, it has not reoccurred and for that I am extremely grateful.
 A recent road trip took us by a fantastic field of bluebonnets.  Fortunately for me I had my camera.  Ikey did not think he was so fortunate.
 It doesn't take much for me to acknowledge and thank God daily for this little guy.  Talk about unconditional goes both ways.  He wakes me with a snuggle every morning.  He greets me with a smile and a wiggle of his body every time I come home.  He would love to go load up and every where with me any day of the week.  He interjects without saying excuse me every time I have company or get on the phone.  "Hello'm here mom...can't you see me (bark...bark)!"

Puppy love, it was great when I was a girl and it is great years later in my life.
I know that God loves me even more than this.  His love too is unconditional.  His love is ever lasting.  His love is the same every day.  And for that too I thank God every day.
Romans 12:10Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

Encourage One Another, continuing the journey on fresh paths.
Blessings and love to you, xoox.

On another recent Sunday we watched "Eight Below".  It is the story of a man who has to leave his sled dogs behind in the freezing weather and his return to see what happened.  I cried all the way through.  Check it out if you love dogs.

  1. i am glad he is ok, so scary for you... but those pics are priceless, i love dogs in flowers, really lets you enjoy the best of both worlds! we have blue bonnets here too, they bloom with the ca poppy so i adore the blue and org combo of spring, with mustard leading the way. the lupin at the beach are a shrub, they get 6 feet tall and just as fab as the wildflowers and perennials, with a heavenly fragrance. the yellow lupine shrub is next up, they are massed all over the coast and have a citrus lemony smell, can't wait!
