A dog day..

I have a doctors appointment later on in the day and since I work in the early afternoon I've decided to take the day off. The best part? It's the first time I qualify for a paid day off! Wooo hoo! I love days where I'm not supposed to be home and here I am, enjoying the sunshine and warmth. I am going to take the pup out to play ball as she's laying on the floor with her head on the windowsill just anxiously looking outside. She is such a sweet girl. I am so proud of her.Does that sound strange, to be proud of your dog? It may, yet I truly am! She greets people with a wagging tail and a little whine. She is so sweet with little kids and my heart melts when I watch a neighbor girl rubbing Cinnamon's head and chatting away with her. She loves other dogs and plays well with her little friends Bentley and Harley and her cousin Sam. She loves to lay on the bed and snuggle with us. She loves to chase her brother Roscoe who antagonizes her and then runs away!

She is a rescue pup, who was born on a cold December morning in freezing temperatures and left outside with her mom and siblings. The mom was so malnourished that she couldn't produce any milk! I can't imagine how cold hearted some people can be. The good news was that humane society rescued them all and found them all good homes. We were told she was a husky/shepherd mix but lately many people stop to ask us if she's part grey hound. We really don't know. All we do know for certain is that she has been the best dog we could have ever had been lucky enough to have. She does not have an aggressive bone in her body. I can put my hand in her food bowl while she eats, my 2 year old niece can sit on her, lay down on her and even walk her on a lead! I am a big promotor of rescue animals. There are tons of mixed breeds that need a loving and happy home and they return the love tenfold, I can testify to that! I thought I'd share some of my favorite pics of our special girl.

Here she is with her cousin Sam. I think they met that same day and got along great! Sam too is a sweet soul.

She loves to try out new trails

Her favorite times are when the family is all together. (Really, we aren't hurting her just trying to get her to stand on the log, it didn't work out ).

She loves to "swim" as long as her feet are firmly planted on the ground.

And she loves to curl up on the couch, let out a big sigh and sleep.

Whether you're a dog or cat, or fish, or ferret, or bird lover, I hope you experience the unconditional love only an animal can give you. :)
