Be it ever so lovely, there’s no place like home. Home, sweet, sweet home–especially if a dog lives there!
Previously, I have added a few kitties to my pics for you cat lovers out there. But I can’t leave the dog lovers out.
I have never been a cat owner, but have had a couple of dogs. So therefore I must place myself in the dog lovers camp. We had a little black dachshund when I was growing up. His name was Sparky. I became convinced he was the best dog in the world. I had already married and moved away by the time he died. I was glad I wasn’t there. Sad. For years my boys wanted a dog. We finally gave in when I thought they were old enough to do the work it takes. (Well they were old enough, but of course it was Mom and Dad still did everything). Beau was a large, lovable golden retriever. He became our 3rd child. When Beau died after 11 years, it left a big hole. Sometimes I have thought about getting another dog, but I think better about it. Dogs are a lot of work and it’s so sad when they die. Don’t want to go through that again. I do pet every dog I meet on the street, though.
Whether you are a dog or cat lover, their companionship is one of life’s simple pleasures. Enjoy!

Adorable piece and great way to remember Sparky.
Thanks. It’s nice to know that someone actually reads the post instead of just looking at the pictures (like I do many times). Sparky is well remembered!
