Sometimes, it’s just the little things in life that can bring the biggest joys!!!! You see, my grandmother said goodbye to her best friend, Buffy, as she crossed the Rainbow Bridge last year. This picture doesn’t do Buffy justice though…She was one of the most tender doggies I’ve ever been blessed to meet. She was just so full of love…she was a living teddy bear!!!! As with any true dog lover though…it doesn’t matter how old, dull or faded a picture will become…it’s the look on someone’s face when they see their beloved pets on film…it’s a smile of fond memories, stolen moments and a balm of love!!!! You can also see Trev in the background…they were such good buddies!!!!
So, we knew it was time to surprise her with a new best friend…Without further ado, here is Miss Roxy…
She was so little that she sank when she laid down in the grass…adorable beyond belief!!!!
This is her guarding the tomatoes and peaches that were purchased at the Farmer’s Market.
So, it comes down to that smile of surprise, thankfulness and love!!!! Today, it’s true, sometimes the biggest smiles come from the smallest of things!!!!
Hugs, woofs and wags!!!!
FRISKER-i-tis: Is the term we use in our house when Trev Bear shakes off his senior years, grabs his soccer ball and begins acting like a little puppy.
Who says senior dogs don’t have more fun? The eyesight begins to go…why, it just means you have to hold his bowl closer, his treat more steady in your hand (they can always smell the pawesomeness) and your walks together…why, you just have to move a little slower…It’s a win win situation in my book!!!!
Then there are days when the “puppy” comes out and with a burst of phantom energy you are both on the floor wrestling for the ball!!!! Every day is a treasure with your best friend by your side, but to see them savoring life and drinking in their smiles of delight…well, it’s a blessing for both of you!!!!
This is Trev in FRISKER-i-tis mode:
We hope your weekend is pawesome dear friends!!!!
