Camera Critters: Shelby Selfies

Camera Critters
Yesterday, we took Shelby to the vet to get her nails trimmed.
Then we went to my mother-in-laws house so Shelby could visit with Grandma.
On the way home, we stopped at the comic book store.  While the hubby was inside
Shelby and I sat in the Jeep and took selfies.  Here are two that I could get her to
sit still for.  Shelby is such a sweet dog.  Hard to believe she is 10 years old already.

Mom in a Frame

I don't have many photos of my mom so the few I have I cherish greatly.
I found this photo frame and ribbon online and added mom's photo to it.
Just a nice memory to have! :)
I love you Mom and miss you!

Shelby the Spoiled Dog

My dog is only a little spoiled. :)
She is in her recliner, with her own blankets and even has her own lamp.
I will not trade her for anything and I love spoiling her.

God Made A Dog

So God Made A Dog

And on the 9th Day
God looked down on his wide eyed children and said they need a companion
So God made a Dog

God said I need somebody to wake up and give kisses, pee on a tree, sleep all day, wake up again, give more kisses, and then stay up till midnight basking in the glow of the television set.

So God made a Dog

God said I need somebody willing to sit, then stay, then roll over then with no ego or complaint dress in hats they do not need and costumes they do not understand. I need somebody who can break wind without a first thought or second thought. Who can chase tails, sniff crotches, fetch sticks and lift spirits with a lick. Somebody no matter what you didn't do, or couldn't take, or didn’t win, or couldn't make will love you without judgment just the same.

So God made a Dog

God said I need somebody strong enough to pull sleds and find bombs, yet gentle enough to love babies and lead the blind. Somebody who will spend all day on a couch with the resting head and supportive eyes to lift the spirits of a broken heart.

So God made a Dog

It had to be somebody who would remain patient and loyal even thru loneliness. Somebody to care, cuddle, snuggle and nuzzle, and cheer and charm and snore and slobber and eat the trash and chase the squirrels. Somebody who would bring a family together with selflessness of an open heart. Somebody who would bark, and then pant, and then reply with the rapid wag of tail when their best friend says lets go for a ride in the car.

So God made a Dog

God said I need somebody who would stand at your side when the world around you collapses. Somebody to lie next to you during the long nights of pain and sorrow when it hurts to move, or talk, or think, or be. Somebody to stand guard, play games, snore for hours, and repeat as needed. Somebody to give you strength when you have none of your own. Somebody to fight when you have no fight left, to hold onto your soul as if it were their favorite toy, playing tug of war to keep you in this world. Somebody to be your companion and guide in this world and the next. Somebody to wait for you on the other side or stand guard in your absence until they can join you for eternity.

So God made a Dog
