What is your dog's breed? (If you have more than one dog, please list a name followed by breed.)
Both dogs are "pound puppies". Gus is a poodle mix and Greta is a golden retriever mix
I am 55 and a wife of 36 years and the mother of 4 grown children. Wehave four adorable grandchildren. I am a nurse. I love animals of all kinds (except snakes) but I ADORE dogs!!!!
What is one thing your dog does that reminds you to open your heart and love more deeply?
No question... unconditional love on a level that we humans cannot approach as hard as we try. They tell me that I am very special and are always excited to see me whether I have been gone 1 minute or 1 week! Gus is a very special little white spirit who was sent to me to see me through some very hard times. Greta is pure love.
Do you have a website or personal page (such as on Facebook or MySpace) that you'd like to share with other members of our community?
Thanks Jill for the sympathy! I am so thankful that I had 12 years with my funny little Tillie. Your right about how they will always be a part of us and we will never forget them. I guess that's the part of the blessing that we receive for giving them a home and taking care of them.
Hi Jill! Yes dogs and kids are so innocent..That was my little Tillie in the pool chair..She died last February but I'm glad she could still make you laugh. She was our "Silly Tillie". She made us laugh so many times with her funny antics and she loved to pose for photos.
Your comment about Rio brought a tear to my eyes. He was a true fighter until the end. Bless his little heart. When I was getting all the items ready for Rio's final resting place, I knew the St. Francis Figurine was perfect. Isn't it beautiful? Thank you for the gift - its beautiful. Oliver is here with me at work and he thanks you for accepting the friend request. Have a wonderful weekend.
