Spottyed Snuggles #133 OneHundredOne

As a Dalmatian lover, I’m excited about the upcoming  (re)release of the

Disney animated classic “101 Dalmatians”!

I fell in love with this breed as a child. I was an avid reader, read all the library books twice, sometimes for a third time, before they were due back. It gotten to the point of my being limited to check out the same number of books to how old I was. I was quite the happy camper to be selecting books from the Young Adult section in the main room rather than from the Children’s room. My siblings did not appreciate my appetite for the written word, as they sometimes didn’t read all the books they checked out within the given time.

In 1995,  Nicholas (my now late partner)  mentioned there was a live 101 Dalmatian movie to be released the following year.  I think he may have noticed how my face lit up when I described how I loved reading Dodie Smith’s book when I was a ‘tweener.  In late February 1996, I was in bed with the flu when he said he had a surprise for me and wanted to see if I was awake for it. I waved at him but really wanted more sleep. He said he’d have to get this surprise out of the car. That’s when I jumped out of bed, ran down the stairs and met Nicholas  coming in the door from the garage holding a puppy! My very first dog!!!  We named her CookiesNCream as her markings resembled Nicholas’s favorite ice cream flavor at that time.  The ‘Miss’ part came later when she decided to be a lady.

I owe so much to this little spotted lady. She inspired me on so many levels.

For all that she has taught me, I am forever grateful.

    Your little girl was a pretty lady for sure! Her name CookiesNCream fit her perfectly ~ how wonderful that she could be part of your life!

      Thanks for reading!
      CookiesNCream was named after the (late) hubby’s new favorite flavor of ice cream. She became Miss CnC when she was about 4 y/o and decided she was a lady. 🙂

    Oh she was such a gorgeous little lady from the first wasn’t she 🙂 I am glad someone else had the love of going to the library and checking out books and reading. I LOVED the library. Ours was old and smelled of old books and wood polish. I used to ask Mom to take me there on the week-ends so I could sit and read on rainy days 🙂

      Hi Marty!
      Yes! I loved that smell of old books and wood polish too! I don’t have any memories of sitting there to read- we were to select books in a given amount of time. I do remember the librarians helping me make age appropriate selections. When I got a little older, I could go to the library by myself but always had to bring my younger siblings along and supervise them.
