Love and Stinky Kisses

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! 



Not that I'm looking for another dog any time soon, that's for sure. But there will be a someday, no doubt....and until then I will be ever so happy spending my days loving and spoiling the two babies I have at home. 


They own my whole heart.

    1. I've had wonderful little mutts, too, in my past. And honestly, I'm not limited to a pure bred....as long as they are cute and cuddly and well behaved they can come home with me! If I got one of these dogs I would look for a rescue. There are so many organizations out there that have rescue sites for specific breeds - it's incredible!

    1. That's my sweetie's cat - he has his own home with his kitty and I have my home with my pups. She's a cutie, isn't she? Her name is Lucy.

  3. I lost my 17 year old Lhasa Apso last April. I said then that I never wanted another dog cause it was so hard to let her go. Now I'm thinking maybe I do. Like you, I prefer small lap dogs too. We'll see!

    1. I have lost pets in the past and like you, thought I will never live through the pain. But they are such joy to have around and such wonderful company - I actually adopted my older girl from a home that was looking to give her up just a few days after my previous dog passed away very unexpectedly. It wasn't planned but it was honestly the best thing I could have done - she helped my heart heal!

  4. Oh gosh, Lucy is adorable. I see why she is spoiled. :)

  5. I have three cats that are very loved and quite spoiled. They're definitely my fur babies. I have a friend that has a Papillon. She cost $15,000! I'll explain that one, lol. My friend's 6-year old daughter is a type 1 diabetic. This dog is a therapy dog. She was trained to detect highs and lows in the little girl's blood sugar levels. The stories I see about this dog on FB are nothing short of a miracle. I can't tell you how many times this dog has woken up the parents because she detects a major crash in the little girl's blood sugar. This dog can even detect the blood sugar level spikes or crashes soon before they actually happen. So when you say this breed is smart...I guess that's an understatement!

  7. Debbie, We had a Papillon. His name was Dudley and we miss his so very much. We actually had him before we got Miss Molly. He was so smart and lovable, but unfortunately he got Addisons Disease and his outlook wasn't good. Even with medication the vet said he would have more bad days than good. The sad part was he was only around 6 years old. We also had a German Shorthair Pointer that was just as smart and adorable as Dudley. Her name was Porsche (a sleek, fast German machine). Dudley was only a year or two old when Porsche died. We now have a grand dog named Brooklyn, who is is German Shorthair Pointer. All our kids have dogs of their own now, so we're the proud grandparents of 6 grand dogs: Basset Hound, German Shorthair Pointer, Weimaraner, Hungarian Vizsla, and two English Pointers! Whew!

  13. Oh we love our animals around here! The picture of your sweetie's kitty is just adorable with her toys all lined up! And I love your precious doggie too, love seeing the pictures of them! I cannot imagine our life here without all our furballs, they bring such joy into our hearts! We got Roger from the shelter, and he came with problems, but now, he is just the sweetest dog ever. I have to refrain from going to those shelters or I would come home with all of them! But when I buy dog food, cat food, chicken food, bird food and deer food, I realize my grocery bill takes a hit every time, lol, although I love all our animals dearly, but I don't think I can afford any more!

    1. I'm the exact same - if I walked into a shelter no doubt there would be at least one new furbaby coming home with me! And honestly, my vet bills are high enough without another pup added to the mix!

  14. You just brightened my day with all those pictures of man's best friend. I am such a dog lover and can I tell you a secret, I was terrified of them till about 20 years ago my husband brought home a puppy. It was love at first sight.

    1. I had a pom, like you, before my Jack Russels - he was my life and he died very suddenly at the age of 7. Very shortly after (within days) my older Jack Russell, Lily, needed a home....that was 13 years ago and she rescued me from my broken heart!

  16. I love my animals too. I had to unsubscribe to anything that shows dogs for adoption because I can't be trusted.
