Dogs are amazing. I'm trying to type a new post, but I am currently under attack. The dogs are nudging and licking and nipping at me trying to get my attention. It's so wonderful how they are able to love so unconditionally. This has been a pretty crappy week for me, and I've had such a trouble with negative energy. I can feel the dogs making me happy. At first they made me smile, but Apollo made me laugh out loud when he started to nuzzle my ear with is cold nose. It gave me the cold chills. He is such a gently giant and is a perfect addition to our family. Plus, he is so happy.
I'm sure many of you remember when I first posted this picture. He was so filthy. He was covered with ticks and fleas, and had massive mattes of fur hanging loose. Plus, he was super skinny.
This is what he looks like now. I took him to the groomer and we took care of the matting hair, and the fleas and ticks. And he is looking much better now. He seems very happy here.
Although Javie dog is jealous, I think she is happy to have Apollo around. She is my shadow dog. I have had Javie since she was 5 weeks old. I have always been her "protector" from the kids. She greets me at the door every evening when I come home from work. She will follow me and snort at me until I sit down and pet her. She gets very verbal if I don't acknowledge her. She is such a princess.
The lighting in the L.R. cast an eerie effect to this picture of Apollo and the boys. The boys love him and it seems Apollo loves them back, although I don't see how. He is always trying to nuzzle and lick them.
Yep, dogs are amazing. Because they always make us feel loved.
