Missing my girls oh so much

A House is Not a Home Without Man's Best Friend

Haven and Todd

You do anything to make your pet comfortable when they are not well.
The other day at work I had the extremely wonderful pleasure of holding one of these (a 4 month old italian mastiff pup named Bella) and it sent a wave of overwhelming emotion through me.. 

She was huge at 4 months and yet so well behaved and I wanted to run away with her never to return but at a price tag of 2500.00 I don't think that would have went over to well with her kind owner. His first stunning boy is an english mastiff and now he has this precious  Bella.

You see I love dogs, have always had a dog and after our last sweet rottie girl passed, (she was our third) we decided to take a break due to my health. I am a big dog, rottie lovin girl  and  regardless of size all  dogs need regular walks in order to be happy and healthy.

As I still have my good days and bad days (the good are ever so slowly out numbering the bad) and until I am sure the good days are consistent enough and here to stay  I will have to wait.

isn't she so incredibly beautiful!

and this is what she will look like when she's all grown up,
be still my beating heart!
That night I committed myself to sofa duty as I was not feeling so great and immersed myself in the Humane Society's websites. It was eye candy for me but it saddens me so to see so many wonderful pets looking for the forever homes. I got my first girl Kayla as a pup from a breeder and she was nothing short of a spectacular dog but then we found our second 6 year old  rottie girl Haven at the Humane Society and she was just as wonderful. I would love to adopt again and I so badly want to do it right now but we vowed to not get another dog until we fence in our backyard and that is not going to happen until the snow is gone!

 My heart is aching.

Tell me who is your toe warmer and did you adopt, go with a rescue organization or buy from a breeder?

Hi Sandra,
What a sweetheart! My baby's name is Bella, too :) She is a rescue dog, and I love her to bits.

Merry Christmas!

Hello Gina,
How wonderful that you have got a rescue pup. I believe that is the way to go as there are so many dogs in need of a good home.
Oh I really think that Bella may have to be our next fur kids name. It just sounds so perfect, only thing is my hubs calls nicknames me Bella, so it could get confusing if one of us is getting called!LOL
