Looking Back

I always knew looking back on the tears would make me laugh, but I never knew looking back on the laughs would make me cry.

That is a picture of Boss. I cry when I look at this picture because of the many times he made me smile despite my illness. Jeez is this me sentimental about a dog? I don’t like dogs, yet he was my best friend, and I miss him.

  1. I can understand your sentiments very well. This chap looks very relaxed and surely he enjoyed your company very much. Though not wishing to own a dog myself I get along with them very well, more like a Buddy, since I even hate “mastering” Dogs. Dogs are usually very honest.
    Monday hugs

  2. Thanks Andreas for the Monday hugs. I think it was his eyes, he was adorable. Strong and a fierce bark too. Very sweet and protective. He grew on me.

  3. This post reminds of our family dog Sheba and she did walk like a queen(Like the Queen of Sheba of Ethiopia)!! We miss her too. I have found animals are more loving, respectful and protective when treated and loved right and give that love in return. It looks like you really spoiled him!!!!!

    1. You understand then it was hard not to spoil him. A look in those eyes and all was forgiven on my part. His protective with a fierce bark that would scare anyone knowing at my door. They didn’t know he was a sweet-natured puppy.

      I didn’t think I would become so attached to him because I prefer cats.
