This past weekend, I had another opportunity to hang out at our friend’s house and his Irish Wolfhounds and his French Bulldog. I had an absolutely horrible week dealing with the insurance and I was so looking forward to this visit.
You’d have thought these pups were my grandkids or something. At one point, my husband asked me, “how many pictures did you take”? I laughed. The answer was LOTS!
Now, I was waiting on my DSLR camera to come in, but I had to settle for my cell phone. I had previously downloaded some editing software and used it on a few of these pictures.
I cannot tell you how much fun I had following the dogs around to get just the “right” shot. Everyone knows I visit for the dogs and the people are secondary. They truly make me laugh, make all my problems disappear for an evening and bring out my smile (which is a rarity; esp. in photos).
Even the kid got into the act. (LOL)
Please enjoy this round of snippets from some amazing dogs that have become my Happy Place.
Her brother licked the back of my head later in the evening. I took a real shower after that.
“The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around – and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.” (by Daniell Koepke)
