Someone Has A New Toy

Maddy Jean loves her toys.
This new addition is a Dalmatian puppy.
My daughter, when she was young,
got several of these as gifts.
They were very loved.
Later put up on shelves to look at from afar.
Now, after almost twenty years,
they are being donated or thrown out.
This one was given to the puppy toys gang.
Maddy Jean has always needed
something to have in her mouth.
She greets everyone with a toy
and a wiggle.
Even though she's going on eight
(don't tell her she's not a puppy anymore)
she still has toys and enjoys them
like she did on the first
day she came to my home.
This dog/puppy is an absolute love.
My love.
She took my heart the moment I saw her.

I knew what I wanted.
Someone similar to my other Golden
but not exactly the same.
Did I ever get that.
Maddy Jean is full of life.
Always wants me to be with her.
Always wants to be with me.
I know that's the same thing
but I had to say it so you got
that she needs to have
someone with her at all times.
If not me, than her sister, Bella.

So, on this eventful Friday
I hope you enjoy
your Dear Cats & Dogs.

I know I will be.

(Maddy Jean's full name is
Madeleine Eugenie.
She has a big pedigree.
Wanted to make sure her hips
and eyes would be good.
My other Golden, Sandra Dee, had
trouble with those. )

Your puppy/doggie is sweet with her toys. I am going to babysit for two Doberman doggies in July. I am seeing them as much as possible and playing with the male who loves his toys too. I am trying to get him to drop the tossed toy at my feet. He almost has the game down. A few more inches and we will have it done. His sister isn't really a toy lover, but a sweetheart just the same.

Toys are the BEST! I love my mouseys most of all!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
