    Loved the photo! Love all creatures, well…except for spiders. I love what they do, clean the world of other insects they just scare me. Eeeek.

    What a cutie pie!

    I love this verse. I’ve also read all the James Harriott books, with these lines as titles. He was a Veterinarian in Yorkshire! I love his books. Not only were the stories of his Veterinary days amazing, his discriptions of the countryside were incredible.

    Great post, Melissa!

    Hi Melissa – Abby’s choir recently sang that song. Makes me tear up when I hear anyone, but esp. children, sing those words! And I love your doggie …. oh, Haggis would love to meet him (her?). Happy Monday!

    Hello Melissa!

    Happy Tuesday! I thought my puppy was the cutest ever, but Winston has completely won me over. How ever do you keep from showering him with treats and hugs all day?

    Have a really lovely week!

    I love your Westie, Winston. My Basset hound, Tommy Boy would love to do lunch some day with him. :0)

    I love Winston! I have a Westie named Otis. He will be 9 the day after Christmas. It was the best choice we could have ever made when we got him. He is a “momma’s” boy. He even goes to the babysitter every day during the week as there is no one home during the day. He can’t stay all by himself. It’s the same babysitter I had and my son. They love him as their own. They have all kinds of Westie items throughout their house. We all just love him. Thanks for the blog!!!!
