Oh, how love knows no bounds. πŸ™‚

In the last 2 years, since we brought home our sweet Pepper (pictured adorably above πŸ™‚ ) I have done things I never would have thought I’d do in a million years.

After she ate a giant rag when she was about 5 months old, she got sick, threw it up …. & I did something that day that I never thought possible. — As any good dog would, she had decided that she would eat it again. So, without even thinking, I raced over, grabbed it, & proceeded to play tug-o-war (this really wasn’t meant to be a game, I was attempting to save her life, because of course, as any new doggy mommy would know, I just knew if she ate that thing up again she’d die for sure.. Lol) Β Anyhow, I wrestled the disgusting rag away from her & felt rather victorious in doing so….. right up until it dawned on me that she had just thrown it up. — Eww. — I loved her so much I never even considered the Eww factor until I was well passed the point of no return. — & when she looked up at me with her tiny little face, all happy & content, I didn’t even care how disgusting it was. — Love. It’s a funny thing.

Once, while on a walk, I realized we stumbled upon a wasp nest in a field. As they swarmed all around her, I thought, Oh my! I have to get her out of here. She, of course, was oblivious to them & I, of course, was about to panic. — When it was all said & done, & we were clear of them…. it was I, not her, that ended up with an ice pack & the Benadryl. Lol, that’s right…. I got stung & she walked away without a care in the world. — But I was okay with that. — I despise insects that sting. I’m an adult & I still run away from them, even in public, Lol I’m not making that up. — But not that day. For her, I lingered around with a bunch of sadistic little stingers long enough to get us both away. — Love, It’s a funny thing.

I have countless stories that I could share. So many things like the ones I just talked about. Moments where I did things for her or made decisions because of her that I never thought I would. All because I love her.

She is part of our lives, our family, and I can tell you that when the day comes that she is no longer with us… I will be incredibly heartbroken.

There really is something special about dogs! πŸ™‚
How could one not love them?

Nothing Quite Like It…

There is nothing quite like cuddling up under a warm blanket & getting lost in a good book. 
There is nothing quite like being consumed by a story & falling in love with characters you’ve never met before. 

There is nothing quite like losing all track of time & enjoying every moment of it. 

No, there is nothing quite like reading. Nothing like it at all. πŸ™‚

— & now it’s time for me to get my read on! πŸ˜‰
