It’s amazing the amount of conversations people have about their dogs, or probably more correct, with our dogs. It’s really no surprise, as our family pets do become a intricate part of each of our families. We each talk to our pets as if they can totally understand every word we are saying, and they sometimes really try to talk to us. I know our dog Angel, at times will have this conversation with us, by having an audible growl-talking dog voice, as if she really is saying something. I have to turn to my wife and ask if she speaks “dog” because I didn’t understand a word she just said. Our Angel greets us everyday with an joyful whole body wiggle that tells us without a shadow of doubt the she is glad to see us. Many of us claim to have the best dog in the whole world, myself included, and each of us could give a hundred reasons why our dog should win in that category for the simple reason, we love our dogs. Now you cat people out there, don’t get me wrong, cats are okay, but I have never seen a cat wiggle with excitement to see me. So today, I want to share with you a little about Angel. She is a Boxer/Pit mix and really does have to be the very best dog I have ever known.
It is a dog’s life for Angel, and she is spoiled rotten, but again, she’s worth spoiling.
She is a hugger and loves to touch! Have you ever owned a dog that knows how to hug? She will bury her head into you and just push against you as if she is hugging you with out arms around you. If she is laying next to you, she will stretch her paw out as far as it will go just to sleep touching you. She loves so BIG!
She loves to please! She is my go to subject when I need to test lighting techniques. Oh.…. she sometimes hates to come into my studio, because she knows she has to perform again. But she takes it like a trouper, and gets all excited that she has done something that you wanted. She’s not a fan of Christmas! Hummmm, I can’t figure out why. Isn’t that sad! It kinda reminds me of the little dog in “The Grinch That Stole Christmas”
She really is quite entertaining and such a good sport. It is really sad that our dogs can’t live as long as us, but they bring us joy and a companionship for a season in our own life that will never be forgotten. I also believe they are in our lives as a teacher. They teach us about unconditional love and how to communicate that love to us with never saying a single word. They always want to be near us, to love and be loved in return. Hummmm.…. Kinda reminds me of God’s love for us. Food for though!
This Blog is dedicated to my animal loving friend Sandy, who has had to say goodbye to three of her four legged friends in about the same number of years. Here is a link to her blog about her recent loss. A Kiss Good-Bye Love ya Sandy! Sorry for your loss. Thanks for praying so hard when our “Angel” ran away looking for us.…. twice!
