I didn’t understand the pleasure a pup gives until Annie came into my life.
Bent upon sharing undeserved love, soft, silky cuddles and mock kisses. She’s never finished, I can’t get enough.
Companion and guard dog – yes, she thinks her gruff growl will protect me from birds sheltering from the rain.
I never would have believed hubby and I would decide it best for Annie if he went on his own on the annual month holiday to NZ (he’s gone fishing), and I change my flights and visit my family upon his return.
No, Annie joined our family just one month ago and as our six month old pup is to be our companion for the next sixteen plus years and how we settle her in now will make all the difference later.
Also, she has touched a needy part of my heart. I am smitten, and obsessed by her cuteness.
She is clever, quick to learn and loves the treats when learning new skills.
A stubborn girl if she hasn’t finished sniffing the trees, or I prevent her saying hello to every person or dog we pass.
The long walks we share, her by my side or running circles in the park. The return home when she is in my arms or resting in a large bag, as her little legs are exhausted. All this to this new dog owner is special.
My shadow plonks down upon my keyboard when I am writing, telling me ’you have done enough, it’s my time now!’ How can I resist.
My ever present companion has added a special dimension to my life.
Dear Doggie followers, expect to hear more about Annie.
