Well, after perusing my picture files for something springy--as I am SICK AND TIRED of looking at that snow picture--I see that I do not take nearly enough pictures of spring or summer around here and far too few of the dogs. I have been enjoying reading corgi posts on another great blog, and now believe that I have shorted my pooches of their rightful place in blogdom. I spend far too much type on horses, when I spend far more time with dogs. They never waver in their positive spirit and never fail to lift me with their smiling faces and joie d'vivre (or however that's spelled.)

These two dogs are my faithful companions. Never complaining about what they're getting fed or leaving wet towels on the bathroom or wood floors. They don't create laundry. They don't eat candy in their beds or leave socks in every room in the house. They don't make popcorn and leave the oil opened on the counter. They don't spill milk and they don't moan when it is time to get out of bed. Quite possibly the perfect household companion.


If only I could teach them to unload the dishwasher.

I also and GLAD you got rid of the snow picture.
Very cute pictures of the dogs, I like the one with Tom.
I've often thought my cats are the perfect companions.

How did I miss this post?? I guess I was too awestruck by the thought of 3 sick kids all at once. Your dogs don't create laundry? Mine do...as I type, I am sitting on a chair cover that needs to get thrown in the washer (along with a ton of other laundry...I really think I'm going to haul it all down to the laundromat this weekend and get it all done at once. It has been a busy 6 weeks!). But, they make me smile every single day, I miss them horribly when I'm not home and they are always thrilled to see me. (Fritz does complain if I toss and turn too much trying to get comfy at night.) (And Spice wakes me up meowing every morning. I think she STILL misses Zia.)
