Thank you all for your support and unconditional love. You have no idea how much you all mean to me. Thank you Purps for starting this and we're on #3!! It is such a relief to be able to be me, the good and the bad and I still have my friends. I'm glad I am starting to realize my character defects and start working on them!
Billie is adorable. Beagles have such wonderful, fun and kind temperaments.
Love, peace and health to all my dog lovers. You all mean so much to me. ♥♥♥
Purps, they cleared the shelter!!! How awesome. Thank you for sharing the news.

Overdosing on 'Too Cute'. English Mastiffs were so chunky & adorable. Well, they're all wonderful.

Least - That's a lovely portrait of Billie. So content soaking up the rays.

Billie has a lovely and loving personality. She likes everyone.

I am so grateful that I went out there on the right day and time to find her, waiting for her forever home. Took her home with me the same day. I talk to her a lot about that day. I changed her life and she changed mine.

This year on May 3rd, it will be 4 yrs since I adopted her. And thanks to Pondlady for telling me the method of housetraining her, which worked very well.

I'm glad we have this thread to come to and talk about dogs dogs dogs!

I was thinking about my Doberman, least, and everytime I took him to the dog park, he loved hanging out with Beagles. I think he thought they were fun too.♥

When I woke up today, the first thing I saw was Billie's face right next to me. That always makes my day.

How cute is that Least?!? Thanks for sharing

I saw a post on IG ~ wish I could share it here, but it's from a veterinary hospital and all the staff members are wearing a cone around their necks, while the dog is dressed as the doctor....so adorable!

That was cute, least. Very quiet on the homefront here. I just woke up, very anxious, it's raining out, which is very good. I hope it stops for a little while when I take Luke for his walk. He has become a bit pampered, I'm afraid, and does not like the rain. I'm not crazy about walking in it either, so I can't blame him!
I have got to vacuum sometime today and do a couple of chores.
Glad to have SR and all of our dog lovers here. Glad you checked in Hev. My morning check ins help me get rid of morning anxiety I often wake with. Although I woke up around midnight and watched a horrifying Cold Case Files, which can be an interesting show. Not in the middle of the night though. I kept waking up thinking about it!!!
Have a great day. Stay safe. sending love to you all!!♥♥♥

Very adorable. Looks like he has a bit of German Shepherd in him. What smart puppies they are and so very cute. Thanks for sharing the pic!
