Man’s Best Friend

Recollect that the Almighty, who gave the dog to be companion of our pleasures and our toils, hath invested him with a nature noble and incapable of deceit.

Walter Scott, 1771 – 1832

My dogs always know what is up with me and what is down with me. I have had them lay their furry heads right where I hurt, because they always know, and the pain eased up. I have also had my heart rate and respiration lowered by my faithful companions.  I cannot imagine living without at least one dog in my life.

My dog is getting pretty old, so I have been looking for inspiration for scrapping her photos.

A dog’s best friend is his human.
Please Mom, Can we Keep him? This one was pretty funny to me. When my brother and I were kids, we found a stray beagle pup that someone had dropped off. We went “here doggy, here doggy” all the way home and then told our mom that it followed us home, and asked to keep him. He was a member of our family for about ten years.
