Although I’m fully aware of just how sickening it can be watching a parent going all soppy over their child and that it’s even worse when humans wax lyrically about their pets, I couldn’t resist.
There was Bilbo all snuggled up asleep on the Pooh Bear rug and I went all mushy, gushy and took at least ten photos of the poor mutt who probably thought he was being struck by lightening as the flash kept going off.
Bilbo turns 10 this year. While he’s looking very healthy, I’m very conscious that dog years and human years far from correlate and there will be a goodbye.
With this in mind, we adopted Lady a few years ago. She was supposed to be our next dog, especially as he wasn’t in good shape back then. Somehow, her arrival gave him a second wind and he’s really perked up.
However, adopting Lady also made us appreciate even more how each and every dog has their own character and that you can’t replace a dog anymore than you can replace a person. You simply have to grieve and then move forward.
However, this wasn’t supposed to be a sad, reflective post. It was all about showing off my puppy dog in all his cuteness and appreciating him…. ball obsession and all! He’s a marvelous dog and definitely our best furry friend…along with Lady of course!
