Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made. ~Roger Caras, American wildlife photographer and writer
Beautiful post, Debbie! Both the quote and your photograph are perfect together!
And as I’ve shared with you many times before, Dallas has THE cute little face!
What a love he is!
Thanks for sharing the sweetness today, my friend!
X to you and Dallas
Thank you, Ron. I think Dallas has the sweetest little face, too, but I’m his mommy — nice to hear that others agree with me! Sometimes it’s hard catching him in a real “pose,” as he’d prefer to ignore my camera when it points in his direction! xx
I’m so sorry I haven’t been present in blogosphere. Was planning beautiful trip abroad but few days ago my brother suddenly pass away. It wasn’t the cancer. He was doing well. I’m still in shock. No time to write, I reposted my story of when I first learned he had cancer. Still, my beloved brother is gone.
Dallas looks exquisite in the photo. Treasure him, love him. Time is fleeting.
Oh, NO. Monica, I’m so sorry. I didn’t realize your brother was so ill. Yes, I think you’d mentioned it a long time ago, but I suppose I was hoping he’d improved. Y’all were close, and I know you’re hurting right now … especially having to lose him right on the heels of losing Sir Henry. Please accept my deepest condolences and know I’ll be praying for you!
Glad you liked Dallas’s photo. He’s a keeper, and I’m blessed to have him in my life.
Beautiful photo of Dallas. He is such a good looking pup.
Thanks so , John. He doesn’t look like a senior pup, does he??
Not at all. Maybe two or three years at best.
Wow, that was a LONG time ago!
Doesn’t look like it was. He is well cared for.
Thank you — and well loved, too!!
Of course. Goes without saying. You’re the mom.
Dallas, you are rocking it! Please tell your mom that we love seeing pictures of you, that pictures like today’s cheer us up with your effervescent presence. 🌟🐶🌟
Aw, thanks, Miss Virginia! I Dallas love it when people make over me and since today was my day to be groomed, my furs are especially soft and sweet-scented!
Aw, he’s so gorgeous! He looks like a lion surveying his territory in that pic! I bet he gets far more than scraps though… 😀
Thanks, FF. He does look regal like a lion, doesn’t he? And sometimes when he looks a certain way, his eyes (which are tawny anyway) look more cat-like than canine. But he’s all dog — cats don’t beg at the dinner table, do they?!
What a regal looking dog! That really is one fine photo. It makes me wish I were there to give him a love — and maybe a little treat, too.
Thank you, Linda. He was watching me hang clothes on the line outside when I captured this pose — too often, he turns away from the camera. Yes, he’d welcome a hug — LOTS of them, in fact!
Love this quote and oh so true. Dallas looks so gallant.
Thanks, Pat — I’ll let him know!
Such a handsome boy.
Thank you — he gets told that all the time!!
I bet he does! He and Katie would have made beautiful little ones.
His breeder regularly tells me she rues the day she insisted I have him neutered (and so do I!)
