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!
