November 17th – Puppy Love

There are few things that make a house a home like having a pet to share it with. Dan and I have had a dog from day one together. Nowadays, it is Dan and I and our Cavalier ‘Kat’.

Today in honour of Kat – and Casey and Scraps, I offer a few ‘words of wisdom’ on the mighty, marvelous dogs that we have shared our home with.

“If there are no dogs in heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”

– Will Rogers

“Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one is a life diminished.”

– Dean Koontz
Casey dog💞 RIP

“The dog lives for the day, the hour, even the moment.”

– Robert Falcon Scott

“Be the person your dog thinks you are.”

– CJ Frick

“A dog will teach you unconditional love. If you can have that in your life, things won’t be too bad.”

– Robert Wagner

“Grandma, if you want a dog to come to you, you can’t yell at her. You have to sound like you want to give her a hug.”

– 2 year old Maddy B.
Maddy & Kat – hugs and puppy kisses💞

“Happiness is a warm puppy”.

Charles M. Schultz

“Dogs do speak but only to those who know how to listen.”

– Orhan Panuk
Kat – “Yes I have your blanket.” 😏

That is it for today! Take care and have a great day. 💞

  1. Thank you, Frony. My Dad had dogs when I was growing up. His dogs just adored him. I got my own first dog when I was twelve – a chihuahua dachshund. He adored Dad too – never had anything to do with me. 😂

  2. My boss had to put his dog down when we still had Casey. He was so devastated that I convinced Dan we better get a backup dog then and there. We got Kat and had the two dogs together for a few years. When we had to put Casey down, Kat was devastated. There is just no easy way. 😥 I am glad you were able to adopt a new dog right away. It seems they are at quite a premium since Covid began.


  3. When my Dad was around, the dogs were all about him. Mickey did come to me once. He got separated from Dad and came crying to my feet. (I was dressed in a red satin bridesmaid dress with short puffy sleeves). I picked up Mickey and started across the hall. He spotted Dad before I did. He clawed his way up my arm, over my head, and jumped into Dad’s arms. It was all very elegant. 😂

  4. Charlie and I have always had dogs also. Usually two at a time. We may get a second after this wild puppy grows up some. Thankfully we didn’t give in to the temptation to take two from the breeder at once!

  5. This dog owner loved this post.

    I like to think I learned something from every dog I’ve owned. For example, my Australian Cattle Dog (ACD) Stella tried my patience and tolerance. It is true – ACDs must have a job and if you don’t give them one, they will give themself a job. Stella did – she wrecked stuff until I put her to work in classes and in power walking. Those jobs fulfilled her need to work.

    What I learned from Stella is that every dog needs a job. I’ve learned since that that job differs from dog to dog. Of our two current dogs: Fitzi’s jobs are to be a sweet boy, and to be loved. Lucy’s jobs are to fiercely warn us of intruders, and to curl up on the couch between us when there is no threat.

    I like Maddie’s advice.

  6. It was the opposite for us – Kat would walk under Casey, walk over Casey, steal her food and treats, anything to bother her and Casey would take it. The only time Casey pulled rank was if Kat was outside and did not come when I called her. Casey would come to the door and give one bark and Kat would come running.
