Spottyed Snuggles #141 Moment

“There is never a time or place for true love.

It happens accidentally,

in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Miss CookiesNCream

Miss CookiesNCream

 Miss CookiesNCream will always be my heart dog.

She was there for me from the moment I set eyes on her

until she departed this world.

I am thankful for all the lessons I have learned

from her being in my life for thirteen years.

For that, I will be forever grateful.

Do you have or have had a dog

who captured your heart the way she did for me?

Spottyed Snuggles# 135 Love

Dog! When we first met on the highway of life,

we came from the two poles of creation….

What can be the meaning of the obscure love for me

that has sprung up in your heart?

CookiesNCream.

My first dog, who taught me so much in the short time we had together.

She came into my life February 1996 and went to the Rainbow Bridge September 2008.

Gracious with all the four legged guests that stayed here,

charmed all the humans that we encountered,

patience with my shortcomings of understanding canine behavior and dynamics.

For all the life lessons I learned being with her, I am and will be forever grateful.


Spottyed Snuggles#134 Heart

“A dog has one aim in life… to bestow his heart.”

~ JR Ackerley

I am most humbled that all three gave their hearts to me in their own special way.

I’m to understand that this month’s Blog Paws theme is about Spoiling Our Pets.

Miss CookiesNCream, The Bandit and La Petite Grande Dame Cherie

were referred to as my Spoiled Spotts.

As you can see by these images, they lived up to that name.

Spottyed Snuggles #129 Christmas

 

“Christmas is not a date on a calendar.

It’s more than a state of mind.

It’s a condition of the heart.”

― Toni Sorenson

I am very grateful to have learned this important life lesson from the Dalmatians.

It was Christmas to them each and every day.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Spottyed Snuggles #125 Move

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

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 #122 Grateful

“A dog is grateful for what is,
which I am finding to be
the soundest kind of wisdom and very good theology.” 
 – Carrie Newcomer

Although Cherie (La Petite Grande Dame Cherie)  lived with me for just a short time,

this daily beautiful smile of hers spoke volumes of how grateful she was!

(WordPress just reminded me that this is A Spottyed View’s 200th post!)

Spottyed Snuggles #121 Heart

 

 

 

“A dog doesn’t care if your rich or poor, smart or dumb.

Give him your heart.. and he’ll give you his.”

― Milo Gathema

Miss CookiesNCream and The Bandit, taken March 2008.

 They had my heart from the moment they came into my life

and gave me theirs up to the day they took their journey across the

Rainbow Bridge.

 “The dog who meets with a good master is the happier of the two.”

~Maurice Maeterlinck

The Bandit enjoyed performing the bed squirm.

He was one happy dog from the day he came home until he left for the Rainbow Bridge.

Spottyed Snuggles #115 Phi Beta Kappa

o72903 jpegs005

 

“Why, that dog is practically a Phi Beta Kappa.

She can sit up and beg, and she can give her paw

— I don’t say she will but she can.”

Dorothy Parker

Miss CookiesNCream certainly did things her own way.

She learned her manners well but as a typical Dalmatian,

she figured out what suited her the best.

All I know is that she always gave her heart up to the very end.

Today marks her Sixth Rainbow Bridge Anniversary.

December  25, 1995 to September 3, 2008.

“He sleeps as dogs do when wives bake cakes.”

~Scottish Proverb 

I just loved how The Bandit would sleep while I was close by.

These were all taken in early 2008 before his congested heart failure condition worsen.
