Words can't begin to describe how special it was to finally meet Laurie in person. She was very instrumental in helping me get through Shadow's illness and eventual passing. This friendship is probably one of the best things to come from that difficult time. It was wonderful to finally be able to give her the real hugs, that up 'til yesterday, I was only able to give "cyber-ly"
Meeting the 4 L's was delightful! Lily was smitten by my DH and kept sitting by him while we were there. Logan is such a love-bug! At one point he put his head in my lap and just stared into my face with such beautiful eyes. Sweet Lexi kept offering me her belly to rub
Her personality reminds me very much of Tori's; sweet and mellow.
I can't even begin to describe how darling little Laila is. OMGosh! Can any more cuteness be packed into such a small package? I don't think so! She was so cute carrying around her little toy (see it in her mouth in the last pic?) It was so cute to see her ring the bells to go out, even if all she did was sniff around when Gabe took her out, lil' stinker!
Gabe & Laurie are so exceptionally kind, warm and welcoming. DH and I felt as though we were with old friends from the moment we arrived. Although it was a little over a 3 hour drive one way to get to their place from where we are, I told them we'd do it again in a heartbeat!
You know, when I think of all the wonderful friends I've made over the years as a result of a decision to love a sweet little Cuban dog, I feel so incredibly blessed, indeed!
