By god, comes the time when we get our own pup and we fell under his spell and now I am that person I didn't care for. And Im now all so aware that I bleat whole heartedly and persistently about our little guy like he was a real baby/child. He is one of us, we didn't buy him to sit in a corner and bark when someone came to the door. Nor did we buy him to be looked at and go "aaaaw, ey - look". We certainly didn't buy him to beef up our ego's or to prove who the man of the house is. We wanted a companion, a friend and a living cuddle bun that needed our affection to be thrust upon him.... and we got him. We wanted to reward his fabulous behaviour (exception smelly bum moments) with heavenly long walks day; distances probably too far for a miniature Dachs, but still.
So tonight we fussed over him a little bit more extravagantly more than usual and fed him best steak and scraps of swiss roll. He was utterly spoiled. The best bit about today was after school, I took these pics of Belle being Belle and Eddy being Eddy. Just looking at these pics, it suddenly dawned on me that without these two precious creatures in our lives, our days wouldn't be as colourful or as delightful as your average little family stowed away in a pokey 3 bedroom semi in Wigan.
My loves xxDon't ask how both belle and I managed to keep that critter still!
Ellie sits between the dog leaping from the pouffe to my lap - I ADORE THIS PHOTO!Mark cashes in on the action after work.
And so do I (need to thank Tina Cockburn for editing my rouge cheeks tonight :))
These two have an incredible bond and let me tell you this right now - for starters, this picture was NOT rehearsed.We love this little boy as much as we love our darling girl, both of whom offer different forms of love but its still love.... and we are soaking up every single morsel of it.
As Helen Keller so rightly quoted:
The most beautiful things in the world are not seen nor touched. They are felt with the heart.
