Have Puppies, Not Children

Let's face it. Puppies are much better than children.

1. Puppies will always love you, no matter what.

2. Puppies will never become teenagers.

3. Puppies will never think they know more than you do.

4. Puppies will never want to learn to drive.

Meet my sweet baby girl, Penelope. We got Penny last November. We lost 2 of our babies last year, Prissy our beagle died from kidney and heart failure, and Precious, our lab, died mainly of old age. We were broken hearted. Penny has managed to fill the empty hole in our souls.
She is almost 8 months old now and she is as sweet as she is beautiful. She sleeps all night long in the bed with us and in fact has done this since day 1. She was just made that way. There was no way she could have learned it.
When I need a smile, I have PICTURES of Penny on flickr. I can go there and look. Smiles are guaranteed. It is a proven fact that people who own and love their pets have happier lives and live longer.
I highly recommend a sweet puppy.


  1. She's our baby!!!

    She is outside in her yard now playing, chasing squirrels and birds.

    Later she will come inside 'her' house, lay in 'her' couch, ....

    She sure loves her daddy.

  2. What a sweet puppy! Isn't it funny how our pet children think they own the house and we are just allowed to stay there! LOL.

  3. Indeed, she rules the roost at our house, and so it should be. She asks for very little, a treat, a kind word, a toss of her chew toy, and she gives back 100 percent devotion in return.
