Double Dog Dare


Ahh the joys of doggie ownership. This weekend I doubled my joy with a second little one. My 3 1/2 year old Bichon, Gracie, has been a gracious and patient new friend. And Bella, my 8 month old new Yorkiepoo is frisky and as her previous owner described her, a “close talker”. She’s always up in Gracie’s face sniffing away and it’s funny to watch them. They settled in together with zero issues. No struggle over toys or territory. Bella even slept with us last night with no accidents or incidents. To see them you’d think they had been together for quite a while now.  Now, if only I could get a good picture of them together.

I’m feeling blessed with my “double dog” dare in puppydom. Meet Bella and be blessed!

Puppy love


Today was not one of my better days. The stomach virus hit hard and brought a migraine as his evil side kick. I spent most of the day between the bedroom and the bathroom. Not a pretty sight and certainly not looking or feeling much love. EXCEPT … for my puppy’s love.

Sweet Gracie, my little Bichon Frise, never left my side. I know I’m not alone in giving or receiving puppy love. But today, when I needed some warm fuzzy, she was there. And I’m so glad this little fluffy puppy grabbed my heart 3 years ago.

I’m sending out the love to Gracie and hopefully tomorrow I’ll be more able to think straight and sprinkle the inspiration again.  Be blessed!
