I gave Krissy a bath and she has snuggled next to me on the couch with a throw over her like a tent and a heater blowing in it to dry her. She looks like a little white angel all curled up with her nose sticking out. My leg fell asleep long ago but I don't want to move and disturb her. I was going to get a load of laundry going after her bath but the feel of her little body next to mine feels too good. Before fibro I would have never sit here long enough to enjoy this. So much love in such a little package.
She makes me feel so warm and fuzzy I wish I could share it.
luv and hugs

Hi Marlee,

Just reading that warmed my heart. I am so happy that you had that experience. It is wonderful what our four legged companions can do for us. I hope that you have a very happy New Year.

Luv and hugs, Karen

Marlee, how sweet.  I can just picture it now.  Krissy is so cute.  Send me a picture sometime.
I have never had an inside dog for very long, but I saw a little dog that someone brought to school before Christmas and I am thinking about getting one of the next liter.
It is half toy rat terrior and half toy cha-wa-wa (sp).  It was the tiniest dog I've ever seen.  She carried it around in her purse.  I fell in love with it.  I'll just have to wait and see when they have a new litter.
Happy New Year!
Of all the things that I have lost, I miss my mind the most!!!!

Isn't it great the way we bond with our new little friends? They make such a change in our lives.

I love my 2 so much(a Yorkie named "Ellie" and a Maltese/Terrier mix named "Brie") and don't know what I would do without them! I talk to them all the time & they tilt their little heads and listen. When I am having an extra bad day, they know. I would be so lonely each day without them.

Oh well, just wanted to say I know where you are coming from. It is just like getting a new baby to cherish. Then they grow up to be our best friends and they never ask for anything. I'm so glad you have Krissy to love you and keep you company when you are alone!

Hugs!!   Margie

on the other hand, I have a bengal cat. He looks like a miniature leopard. They are bred to act like dogs so he follows us around the house like one. A bengal's cry is unlike any other cat's.

Instead of a cute little meow he hollers and often barks. You should here him growl when he is being a guard cat.

This morning, after I made a trip to the potty room before returning to bed to continue sleeping, he decided I should pet him for a while--so I did.

When this was over the little stinker turned off my cpap machine. the never, he was trying to kill me. lol

Anyway, when he wants me up he will turn it off. grrr

Awww, nothing like warm and fuzzy to make you feel better. I know the feeling very well. I don't have small dogs, but they behave like if they were wink I love all of them but the special one is a boxer that I found 4 years ago roaming the streets...when I realized she was deaf I just couldn't let her go. She's such a lovable dog and she sleeps in between our pillows. When I can't sleep I hold her warm body and whisper to her..."Queni, let me share you dreams, let's go together to the land of nod" Just to feel her peaceful breathing is enough...it really calms me down!

I love my cat Willow as if she were my child.  She's 12 and such a delight. She follows me around the house all day and when I'm pooped out on the couch, she has to be on me. She loves to give hugs.  If I'm feeling down or in pain, I just focus my attention on her and gives me a lift.  Animals are amazing.  Thanks for sharing your happy post Marlee!

Hello; I have a Rhodesian Ridgebackmix with an American Stafford Terrier. IF you don't know what a Rhodesian Ridgeback looks like, google it. The dog is now either 12 or 13, getting up there for a large dog. 100lbs. She has travelled extensively with me. We have been homeless together (because when I came back from Florida in 05 the friend I was going to stay with, although he had previously consented to the dog, took one look at her and said "no way". It wasn't really his fault, it was his home I would be staying in and he was terrified of her. So, she and I lived out of my car, and sometimes at a camping park. occasionally, we had another friend who let us stay, it was a difficult time for us. I wasn't about to part with my dog. She has been my friend, protector, comforter, go and do everything together, buddy, I told my son the other day, when she passes, I want to be burried with her. He told me I was crazy, he wasn't going to bury me in back garden, especially alive. We have another little dog, similar in nature to her, 1 and a half years, a real dynamo. he does not  like the car, so he won't be able to "hit the road"with me when this alzheimers thing ends(my caring for Dad). They do however, know when we hurt. I  wish more people were like dogs.

Honeyprincess she is a bichon frise.
Tyno we had Brandy cremated when she passed in July and she will be buried with either Ken or I.
My granddaughter was here yesterday evening and asked if she got a puppy if she could leave it here and I told her only if she got a little maltese. I would love to have a maltese too.
I'm happy to share Krissy with all of you that don't have a furry friend.
luv and hugs

My little Havanese, Sabra, is my constant companion.  She is right by me right now!  She never leaves my side and gives so much love.  I have two grandkitties living with me, too, and they also bring a lot a joy.  I, for one, would not live without animals in my home.
