Hello and welcome to the day after Valentine’s Day. We love having you here!
This week’s challenge comes from the fantastic Andie Fenichel:
Do you have a pet? Let’s see pictures. If not, what would imagine is the perfect pet for you and why?
I do have a pet, but it’s more like she has me. A little more than a year and a half ago, I lost my beloved terrier. I was so miserable. And then, a while later, I was scrolling through Craigslist and stumbled upon a picture…
It was like this pup was looking directly into my heart. I contacted the owner and my husband and I went for a visit. She was only five weeks old at the time, but when I held her, I knew she had to be ours. So we went home and waited until she was old enough to leave her (fur) mother. That was a really long three weeks.
It’s been a year and Josie is the most awesome dog. She is beautiful and funny and very opinionated (okay, stubborn).
Every Wednesday, I post pictures of her ‘adventures’ on Facebook and Twitter and, although she doesn’t like to hold still for the camera, somehow I manage (most of the time) to get a decent shot. And I’m pretty sure she knows she’s more famous than I am.
When I’m writing, she lays on the floor next to my desk and naps. So comforting.
She is the perfect pet. We go for long walks and snuggle on the couch and, now that she’s grown up, at night she gets to sleep in the big bed.
I love her very much.
Now, let’s hop over to the wonderful and talented Brenda Margriet. But first…
