Furry Friends Friday 8/27/10

Hi visitors.  Thanks for stopping by today.  I'm doing a quick Furry Friends Friday post today.  However, the linky-thing isn't up yet.  I'm not sure if Marti over at Barefoot & Pony-tailed just hasn't had a chance to put it up, or if she's not doing it anymore.  Or just not this week.  But it's really worth a visit to her blog anyway.  She does some cool stuff.  And the best part, she tells us how to do it too!

Anyway, lets talk about Sassy.  Sassy is the star of my sometimes feature "Sassy Sunday".  She is the queen of the house but loves her subjects royally.  If you need some affirmation, Sassy is the one to give it to you.  She will sit next to you on the couch, lean into you as hard as she can, lay her head on your chest, look up at you with those big puppy-dog eyes, and tell you that you are the most wonderful person in the world.
We've had a new dog sitter come to our house a couple times this summer.  After her first week of taking care of our dogs, she told me that she'd never met a dog that made her feel as good as Sassy does.  Yup.  If you need some lovin, Sassy ready and willing.

Sassy came to our house when she was about nine months old.  She'd been passed around a couple of times because of allergies, other dogs and unrealistic expectations.  But, lucky for us, she wound up at our house about a month before we moved from Alabama to our present home.  She became a welcome member of the pack right away and she and Ginger get along really well.

Sassy is a really funny dog.  She greets us at the door and smiles.  The first time visitors see this display of teeth, it can be quite unnerving.  But it is just a toothy grin and she is not about to take a big bite!  I wish I could get her to smile on command.  It's been impossible to get a good picture of her doing it.

I do have some good pictures of her sitting back on her rear.  It's really funny to see her in the easy chair leaning back and taking it easy :)

There is no love in the world that can compare to that of your dog. They love unconditionally.

I totally agree with coffey about the unconditional love. Put your kids, husband, and dogs in the trunk for 3 hours. When you open it see which ones are glad to see you.


love you

Hey Barb, Thanks for the visit....I am so sorry but to be honest I completely forgot about Furry Friends...I should of posted something!!

We are in the process of buying a house and I've been getting geared up to travel tomorrow about 2 hrs away to look at some possibilities. It's been consuming ALL of my time!!!

I'll try to get it up next week or at least leave a note!

Have a great weekend=)
