Touching

As a four-dog household, I am grateful they get along so well.
Thelma and BB - sisters by adoption


Thelma and Louise - sisters by blood

Thelma, Baron, Louise - playing 'connect the dogs'

Baron and BB - siblings by adoption - eating kibble off the tile floor

Such sweetness
And one of my favorite photos of them - they're not touching, but it touches my heart so and reminds me to look forward, no matter what.

We were a 16-paw home for half a year. My Rottie and our Rot foster loved each other and played for hours every day...until one day there was a growl by my grumpy Labrador. Lucy ran in to be peacemaker, and she went at it with the foster. Ever after that fight, there was no peace. It was a sad time in our house. Sheba had to find another home.

I never had more than one dog, but I suspect they are better behaved as a pack.

Having some extra property must help also.

Lovely touching scenes. Penny being an only dog uses her cuddly toys, often sleeping with one between her front legs and nearly always using one as a pillow.

Animals can be more comforting and loyal than humans. So true when stated they are a best friend. My eye caught that big frog on the building.We never know what our futures hold, but think of only the best.

Hi, I'm new to your blog and I adore the photos. I'm a big dog lover. We only have two now, a mutt and a lab. I especially love the "connect the dog." I'm delighted I found your blog and I will be back for more.

That's a big household. It's a good thing they behave themselves .

SO sweet! Otto has become friends with our next door neighbor doggie. She is a toucher. I love watching them together. Your photos capture the whole thing so well!

Barb said...

Good photos of your sweet friends. They're like doggie jigsaw puzzles!

Linda said...

Aww, sweet friendship! When I was a kid, I had two little dog magnets, one black and one white. The photo of the two dogs end to end reminds me of those magnets, which would stick together in that position.

Dearest Theresa,
Human beings can learn a lot from our pets!
It is indeed touching to see how sisters/brothers by adoption can get along.
Sending you blessings for the new week ahead.

They have the heart of their owner. We teach more to our pets than we know.

Have a great week.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

I am sorry about not being able to get by here for quite a while now. Aside from increasing health concerns with both myself and my wife, I have been focusing what available time and energy upon a new project. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to your home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; What a SWEET post of your babies "Thelma, Baron, Louise'(♡^.^♡) Of course, I LOVE all the full of affectionate pictures but last picture really touched my heart☆☆☆

I REALLY appreciate your sweet comments♫♫♫

Mary Cromer said...

Oh those wonderful dogs, what would we be without the love of our dogs...not the same I can honestly say. They are such great creatures.
We got our puppy born in late May when she was 8 weeks old. She is from the same breeder as our second dog is from. Hope you are doing well~
