Ok...Ok... Why a blog?

So, I realize writing a blog about my dog is wee bit ridiculous, but let me tell you why I started this...

My old dog Zoe has been my companion and friend since I adopted her as a 7 week old fluff ball 14 years ago.

Since then I have watched her lie her head in the lap of crying mom's about to hospitalize their children. I have seen her greet long lost friends with a gratitude and excitement I only wish I could replicate. She has been with me through some of the saddest days of my life and has celebrated with me on the happiest. Most amazingly, she has accepted Rosie Mae into her life. She has reached down and given her love and has done it with an ease and comfort that we should all aspire to. I fully believe she has done this because she loves me and she knows I want her to love Rosie.

This is why I write this silly blog. These dogs are a part of my family. I have watched them make people stop crying and smile. I have watched them give people peace and at times, I know their comfort has saved my life.

So - here is to cuddles, long walks, and moments of wonder with our dogs...our lives would not be the same without them.


  1. Oh Jesus Jorden - now I'm cyring at work!
    Dogs have the ability to express so much more than we mere humans can.


  2. I don't think it's silly.
    I think it's perfectly beautiful to acknowledge the loving bond that exists between animals and us upright animals.
    I look forward to checking in on Rosie's adventures.
