I thought I would start off my blog with something very dear to my heart, pictures I’ve taken of my golden retriever. I’ve grown up beside my dog – literally because we got her when I was 3 1/2 years old. In the beginning she was nothing more than a fur ball in my small arms. Our friendship has grown from her having to be bribed to stay in my room at night with treats I’d sneak from downstairs, to her greeting me after school everyday tail wagging and eyes bright, to her smiling at me as I get ready to go out with friends, to her licking the peanut butter from the table knife I just used to make my PB&J, to her never failing to make me laugh after a difficult day, to her heartbeat pounding at my feet as I do my homework, and now to her taking the journey up the stairs to my room with white fur around her eyes and ready to go to bed before I am! There’s something about a person’s relationship with their dog that is irreplaceable and unmatched with anything else. My furry best friend will be 11 years old this November and knowing that she’s getting old for a dog, I am glad that I will forever have these pictures of her in complete bliss enjoying the afternoon sun and slight breeze that carries smells from far away. I hope these pictures of my dog make you smile too.
If you have a dog or other furry friend, I would love to hear about them in the comments section. As always if you have any suggestions, criticism, or requests please feel free to contact me!
