Sweet Comfort

Molly is sitting beside my computer.   She is very sweet and she's doing that semi-nap thing, e.g. eyes half closed, head dropped, just quiet.  Today she provides me comfort and reminds me that I am loved.  I am grateful for our animals' intuition.  (This is an old picture, but one of my favorite.)

Today I remember my childhood dog, Candy.  She was a collie and our beloved dog.  My memory was of a time when I was really sad.  I sat on the back porch and Candy came over.  She sidled up under my arm.  I cried and she licked my tears.  It's a precious memory for me.

Pets are so special because the love us unconditionally and seem to know just when to be there for us the most. It's such a special bond.

What a sweet pic. I've been comforted by many dogs over the years - our pets are so important!

Don't you love it when a decision you've made is proven well worth it. I know how you feel about your pets- I would be lost without mine. The comfort of knowing you have a storm shelter must give you piece of mind. I think it was a wise investment.
