My sweetie has such a fondness for all animals. He rescued a tiny kitten years ago who is now his heart and soul - she's incredibly spoiled and has such a good life.
And he spoils the heck out of my two pups - I don't think he ever goes off the mountain without bringing them back little surprises like a new toy, a Giants jersey, some treats.
No surprise he was glued to the Westminster Dog Show last night. And as much as I said I didn't really care if we watched it, I was hooked also. Isn't it so interesting to see all the unusual breeds of dogs there are? I have never heard of many of them!
The winner this year was a German Shorthaired Pointer named CJ - here he is in all his glory - what a cutie pie!
My sweetie picked him as the winner. I did not.
I like my pups small so they can cuddle up on my lap. I have a few favorite dog breeds that I have always thought some day I may take into my home. I don't say 'own' because, truly I believe our pets own us, not the other way around.
High on my list is a Papillon, which I have had on my radar since I was a child. The Papillon is considered the smartest and most trainable of all the toy breeds....and those 'butterfly' ears just melt my heart!
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel captured my heart many years ago as well - they are such a wonderful little dog, extremely affectionate and well behaved. What's not to love?
I've always adored Yorkshire Terriers (Yorkies) like my friend Brenda has over at Cozy Little House. Just look at that little button nose....like a tiny teddy bear!
