Growing into her name, and being worthy of it

I know, I know...have been slacking big time in the blog department! Been a bit short handed at the Diner lately, plus trying to catch up on some projects at home with the few spare time I have...and of course, taking care of the hubby and Queen Lady! Hubby has been busy with his computer gigs as well, but at least he loves his work, my sweet adorable techie! And of course Lady has been busy with her demanding life - after all, it is very hard being a Lady, with all the demands, obligations, and expectations that fill her every day! Being blessed with such beauty and brains just overwhelms her at times, as does this hot summer with her thick (but oh so soft!) fur coat. But she plugs along with the rest of us, like a real trooper!

You can call me obsessed with our wonderful dog. There are hundreds of great dogs out there - no, what am I saying - thousands of great dogs out there. But Lady, at age 5, has turned into one of those once in a lifetime dogs. Yes, she is smart, yes, she is so pretty. But she is also so attentive, so loving, such a true companion for both hubby and myself. Not once in the 5 years we have had her has she not been at the window or door when we get home. Not once, since she was a puppy, has she had an accident in the house. Not once has she destroyed anything in the household other than a chew toy or one of the plastic water bottles laced with peanut butter that we sometimes give her. She isn't scared of anything except the vacuum cleaner. Lady regards the house and both the front and back yard as her property and makes her rounds daily of each. When we walk her or take her to the dog park, she ignores the hateful dogs who bark and/or growl at her (jealous of her beauty I am sure!) and concentrates on trying to make friends with the humans! She is such a helper too, helping hubby take trash and recycling to the garage, helping me do the laundry by smelling all the clothes,  and even in the kitchen she helps, making sure I haven't dropped anything edible and then checking to see if I stacked the dishwasher right! And the rare times we have had to scold her, she gives you that look, followed by her paw and dozens of kisses, that immediately make us forget why we even scolded her in the first place. And she breaks our heart everyday when we have to leave home, that look is so sad, and that little cry when one of us starts getting dressed in 'leaving' clothes (she is so smart, she recognizes from what clothes we put on if we are leaving or not). But then, upon return, she lavishes us with such love, joy and sheer happiness that perks up even the worst day.

Lady, if only you could understand what we say about you and to you (and we know you understand a whole lot, but not quite everything), and how much we love you and consider ourselves lucky to have found you 5 years ago. You were a wobbly, chubby 8 week old 10 pound super cute puppy, and now we have seen you grow into an elegant, gorgeous, intelligent, and loving 60 pound have grown into your name and are worthy of it my girl.

Have you eѵег consiԁered about inсluԁing
a lіttlе bit more than juѕt your aгticles?
I meаn, what you say is fundamental and еverуthing.

But imagine іf you aԁԁed some grеat grаphiсs or video clips to gіve
your postѕ moгe, "pop"! Your contеnt is excellent but with іmages and clips, thіs website could definitely be οne
оf the greatest in itѕ field. Eхcellent blog!
