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.

“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!
