One Little Pooch

gina & nells circa 2011
After a nice bath--hmm fluffy good!

nells-2011 (he looks suspicious often, it's cute)

It's amazing to me after 5 and a half years what ONE little POOCH can do!
This dog brings me just as much joy if not more than any human does--

Nells was born on December 7, 2005. My husband and daughter purchased him
for me at a pet store--pretty old fashioned, huh? He is the LIGHT of my life!

Nells means so much to me I think for a couple of reasons. 

#1- he is a good replacement
for my maternal clock ending too soon. I was never able to have more children,
so having this little guy to share all my affection with-helps. (My daughter doesn't let
me squeeze her anymore, I don't blame her, she's almost 17).

The #2 reason is that I am a young mother of a 16 year old, and I don't have any
other children, AND I don't work. So I'm home pretty much all day and
everyday, and let me tell you, having Nells brings so much joy to my day.

I believe he was a gift straight from God. I'm unable to work due to health issues still-
so my days can get long.

So this is a shout out to my little furry, apricot Bichon-Poo, for loving me for me
and for letting me kiss you to death! 

You bring me sunshine,
forgiveness when I'm frustrated with you,
and you brighten all my days, 
and I thank God for you Nells!

It's a BEAUTIFUL love affair!
