Spottyed Snuggles #125 Move

“If you want the best seat in the house … move the dog.”


Miss CookiesNCream on the left, snuggled with The Bandit on the loveseat.

How could I ask them to move when they gave me these looks?


They were waiting for me to join them for a Spottyed Snuggle!

Spottyed Snuggles #109 Happy



“Dogs are happy with few things because

they have already observed man

who is unhappy with many things!”

Mehmet Murat ildan

I loved how both my Spoiled Spotts were always happy,

no matter what we did.

I think they were just happy to be with me.

Spottyed Snuggles #108 Soothing

“Petting, scratching, and cuddling a dog could be as soothing to the mind and heart as deep meditation and almost as good for the soul as prayer.”

― Dean KoontzFalse Memory

Miss CookiesNCream and the Bandit loved to cuddle with me.

The body pillow represented where I always ended up- as the middle of a Spottyed Sandwich!

Having had them in my life was very soothing for me.

They did more for me than I was able to do for them.

For that, I am most humble that they were part of my life.

No matter what kind of day I had,

they worked their magic of cheering me up as soon as I walked in the door.

You either have to laugh or cry.

I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache.”

Spottyed Snuggles #90 First Friend


  • “When the Man waked up he said,
    ‘What is Wild Dog doing here?’
    And the Woman said,
    ‘His name is not Wild Dog any more,
    but the First Friend,
    because he will be our friend
    for always and always and always.'”
     Rudyard Kipling
