Nells turns 6 today. I gotta dedicate a blog post to him!
If you don't know who Nells is,
well, that won't last for long,
if you read my blog long enough.
This is my guy in 2009, he's a 75% Bichon and 25% Poodle, and Apricot color.
You might not know it, which you probably don't, but Nells
was an "I'm sorry" gift from my Husband LOL.
We named him Nells after Nels Olsen from Little House On The Prairie
When I first saw him I thought he looked like a little drowned rat.
I was so shocked (I had never had a dog in my entire life!), and
my response was: "What is that? Who is that? What is he doing in here?
Why is Madelynn holding him? Did you find him on the street?"
You can find Nells on top of laundry, on top of recycled bags, and
in this case,
inside of a bag.
He loves to Sunbathe. He also loves dairy (cream and butter to be exact), beef jerky, and sweets.
This is one of his favorite spots in the house. He can typically be found with a stuffed animal near by. He usually has them in his mouth to calm him down or for soothing purposes.
He looks really pretty in the Fall leaves.
He gets upset when I leave.
This is when we were first moving into our house 5 years ago, and he was on top of the mess!
We like to adorn him in scarves and hats too.
Last year at Christmas, with one of his best friends, MoJo!
Nells is peculiar, stubborn and grouchy.
But he is sweet, funny and smart.
He is also loving. And likes affection.
He was purchased at a strip mall, can you believe that?!
It's so trendy now to by them from a breeder.
He fills the void of my maternal clock ending so soon,
and I can love on him all I want b/c your
kids stop wanting that affection at a certain age.
Honestly, my days would be so much longer and harder
without Nells. He is the best gift my Husband has ever given me.
I would say I am borderline obsessed with Nells
I thank God for him everyday.
