Worthy of the Truth

Schatzie_King_11192015While this is a “mixed bag” (at least it’s not a bag of kibble!) blog post, I felt it needed to be so the message would be REALLY heard because it is about how worthy of the truth are our dogs.

Let me start out with my short and goofy “Weird Animal Girl“scenario first because I think it shows how important, precious and special our relationships with our dogs are to us. Continue reading Worthy of the Truth

A Tale of Three Dogs, Part Three Conclusion

Elegant1_32012_2Meshach

FridgeFridge

Cute, fluffy, full of spunk covered in self-assuredness – that was my Golden Retriever puppy, Fridge on his first day with us. At the time in 1986, Refrigerator Perry of Chicago Bears’ fame was a well-known linebacker. Fridge was the largest puppy in his litter, so his breeder named him Fridge. I thought it was cute so I kept the name, especially since he already knew it. Continue reading A Tale of Three Dogs, Part One
