It's All About the Dog

I've loved many dogs over my years. I can't remember a time when there wasn't a dog in our family. A dog is just the greatest thing you can have.

When it was the youngest daughter's turn to go off to college, she and her sisters got me a pup for Mother's Day. His name is Tucker and he is the love of my life.

The very first time we saw Tucker- Mother's Day 2008

Tucky's first day home.

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.  ~Roger Caras

The most affectionate creature in the world is a wet dog.  ~Ambrose Bierce

If you think dogs can't count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then giving Fido only two of them.  ~Phil Pastoret

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself. Josh Billings

Happiness is a warm puppy.  ~Charles M. Schulz

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog. M.K. Clinton

That face. :)

This is Day 4 of the A-Z Challenge!


  1. Tucker is adorable, Pam! I haven't had a dog since the early 1980s, but I loved Sargent Pepper (Sarge). He was a big collie, and a sweetheart. Now cats fit our lifestyle better, though sometimes I really wish we also had a pup. Looking forward to your "E"!!

    1. We had two cats while the girls were growing up but I developed allergies. I suffered through until they both passed on to the Rainbow Bridge. They were so sweet! Kiki and Jazzy. Thanks!

  2. So cute! I love the quotes-as-captions idea too. We had cats for a long time but are currently pet-free. I miss their presence though.

    1. Thank you! I think Tucker will be my last since I do want to go visit daughters who don't live in town all by myself sometimes. I take this pup with me nearly everywhere. I just can't stand to leave him behind. You can imagine what it's like to head out to school in the mornings. :)

  3. AWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. what a lovely post. He is so cute! Happy Easter. Blessings


Welcome, friends! Please spew forth some wisdom for me. I'm quite certain I need it!
