Their tiny dogs were kept in an outbuilding with kennels, and never got to come into the house. Their big "guard dogs" were so matted with dirt and shed hair that they looked like big balls of mud. I felt so sorry for all of them!

    So I ransomed Rosie and Lucky Lou for $50 each. Those two think/thought I was the bees knees, but they were both terrified of my husband--he's the gentlest soul on the planet, and although Lucky finally came around, Rosie never did. Wonderful dogs, both of them <3.

    Maybe Rosie and Lucky Lou were abused by the former human male caretaker in their past lives? Is Lucky still around?

    I think you ARE the bees knees.

    No. He had seizures one day when our local vet was closed, and during the 1 1/2 hour drive to the emergency vet, he died in my arms. It broke my heart. He and Rosie were the sweetest dogs. I still miss them terribly!

    I thought it might be time to share a few more pix of my "Golden Child" (his color is turning the gorgeous lighter gold color of a Golden Retriever, hence the nickname), so here are some. I hope people enjoy them.

    That's sad.

    YAY! BANANA! .

    "Golden Child" is Teddy's nickname . Photography is my favorite hobby, but I'm nowhere near the professional level. I do love taking photos, though--especially of my dogs!

    One last pic of my Golden Child, Teddy, before I head for bed. This was taken by my husband this morning as we watched the Eclipse. Teddy is sitting in my lap because...well, because he's a Mama's boy . He's beautiful now. He's going to be a stunning adult, I think!
