  5. Awww, Lulu is so precious. I love kitties, but I really love dogs. We sure miss our Little Bit.

    Have a terrific Awww Monday. ☺

  6. Labs are just the best for being your friend and stealing your chair. Our Cocker Spaniel pup, Lucy follows me everywhere but she really prefers her own space when it comes to laying down.

  7. Wondering if the dog's hearing or eyesight are going and she needs to be near a friend?

  8. 'Pigs in Blanket Day'. I always thought that was Christmas day, because they are a tradional part of our festive lunch in the UK. Ours are tiny sausages wrapped in bacon and roasted alongside the turkey.

    Another day in Amble Bay!

  9. Lulu looks like such a sweetie, a great companion for your grandparents! :-)

  10. I love homes with dogs on the chairs.

  11. What a nice dog you are Lulu, to take such good care of the grandparents.

  12. I love me those kitties and I love me those pups too. I didn't get a degree from the university for nothing. Lulu is a doll.

  13. I had a dog that always followed me wherever I went. Even if he was sleeping, he would wake up and follow. You can't buy devotion like that.


Thanks for meandering by and letting me know you were here!
