Dog Love


A strange thing has been happening every morning lately, and I’m not entirely sure how my dog is managing it.  So, I go to sleep on two pillows and somehow wake up on one, my dog sleeping on the other. 

It’s magic!

I don’t believe my dog is “just a dog.”  She’s part of our little family.   I love her, and sometimes I get a little carried away with my love for her.   Making bunting with her name on it, dedicating a corner of the room to her and buying a ridiculous amount of treats. 

My dog is loyal, my dog is beautiful and my dog is fun to be with. 

So yes, I love my dog.  

But you know what?  I also love my sleep. And I have no way of communicating to my hound that I wish to have my pillows back of a nighttime. 

Ah well, here’s a bunch of photos of Nala…

As a puppy…

On the beach…


Asleep…

Looking regal…

With Shane and I…

With her ball…

And being pampered….
