"Dogs truly are one of the greatest gifts that God ever gave us. They give us unconditional love just as God does and remind us daily that we too can love this way if we choose."
I have had many dogs in my life. Hoppy was our first female Shih Tzu, we love the breed and her! Just recently my daughter bought a new Christmas puppy and named her Willow. I have had pictures of Hoppy on a previous post but I wanted to share pictures of Willow. She only weighed 2 lbs. when she came to our home for the first time. Her coat is light brown and will probably get lighter. It really is like having a new baby in the house. She just goes through the developmental stages faster.
I have included a video we took of Hoppy watching her favorite TV show, NCIS. She is especially attracted to Tony. She can be in another room and rush to the TV when she hears the familiar sounds of the show. This episode there was a dog barking but she typically watches when it is just the shows characters. This is not the only TV show she watches. Needless to say she loves Caesar and the Dog Whisperer too. I have never had a dog that paid attention to TV before. She is fun to watch and I wonder if Willow will pick up her TV habits. So far she is only interested in Hoppy’s reaction to TV.
I love the quote above and this is why I am honoring my puppies this Valentine’s Day. There are countless times when I have been sick or sad and my dogs are always there for me. They stay by my side, worried until I am better. It is comforting to cry into their soft coat as they lick the tears streaming down my cheeks. Love is truly having dogs that love you unconditionally!
Happy Valentine’s Day and thank you for visiting. Please leave a comment about any of your furry friends….
