How do I love thee?

Yesterday was Valentine's day and it was also my birthday Unfortunately I had to work and I come home late on Mondays but nonetheless, I felt such tremendous gratitude for all of my blessings. And hubby reminded me of how much I am loved and rattled off a list of all of the people who love and cherish me and I felt my heart just swell. The past month has been hard for lots of reasons, including my dad being sick with a pending surgery coming up and a few scary ER visits on his part. Hubby's words were so eloquent and really touched my heart.

I then began to think of my little peanut, Dionna and how much I love her. With all of my heart. Unconditionally. Full force. She is such an angel. She could not have been better scripted. I began to mentally list all of the wonderful things about her, how she makes me laugh, how she comforts me, how she amazes me, heck even worries me at times. This little havanese is just such an amazing little dog.

I know I am preaching to the converted here LOL but I still wanted to share.

happy birthday! lovely thoughts. How about if we turn this thread into a "how do I love thee" for all our fur babies, either from their point of view, or ours.

I hope your father is on the road to recovery in the near future.

YES, that would be so lovely for us to list "how do we love thee" and together we can all "count the ways"!

Dionna, I love:

*how you view the whole world as your play box.
*when you run around and around at times, making grunting noises (puppy madness even though you are now one).
*how you have wiggled your way into the hearts of my mom and dad, both of whom have never had a dog before.
*how you seem to know the names of all of your toys.
*when you get that sneaky look on your face and search my face out to see if you are going to be discovered prior to getting into mischief.
*how you seemed to know that my niece and nephew were afraid of you at first and you did the commando crawl to approach them and then patiently stayed on your back while they petted you.
*how you have tried to take mommy's gund bunny every evening and when successful, you throw it around and paw it until it is squashed up.
*how you love to sit in my lap giving me kisses.
*how you love to sit over the couch back, looking out the living room window, watching life go by.

Your little dog is very fortunate to have your unconditional love Andra. I know of two little dogs (NOT HAVS) who need loving homes so badly, it breaks my heart that I can do so little to help them. One is with an owner who has too many, the other is with an owner who has dogs who do not like her new breed/addition. Both dogs spend most of their time in crates and at 3 and 5 years of age need forever loving homes. So it was wonderful to read your affirmation today..I wish every little dog had a lap like yours! Smiles,

Okay, here's mine for Milo.

How do I love thee:

  • I love your gentle spirit and the way you love to snuggle in right next to me at bedtime

    I love the love in your eyes as you stand on tippy toe to reach my face as you bathe it in love

    I love the sweetness in your heart as you look at me and know that I will take care of you no matter how I'm feeling

    I love your acceptance of all the other living things that populate your world and make us a family

    I love that you finally stopped travelling the neighborhood in search of adventure

    And most of all, I love you just because.
