For the Love of a Good Dog…

Kyle and I were talking tonight about the best things about owning a dog and, as per usual, waxing poetic about Madigan and how sweet and fuzzy and perfect she is in every way (in our opinion).


I know not everyone is a pet person and many of you love cats, too, but I just have to say that, for me, there is nothing in the universe like burying your nose in a dog’s fur or feeling a cold, wet nose nuzzling under your chin in the middle of the night or coming home after the longest, worst day to that big smile and those barks of delight and howls of consternation.

Madigan has been sick this week and we had to take her to the vet. She’s been pumped full of antibiotics and probiotics and on a special diet for her digestive tract but we’re happy to say she seems to be feeling better today.

And if you’re a dog person like me, this video will make you happy, too. It’s an old one but I hadn’t seen it before. This soldier was returning from Afghanistan and his dog ran outside to greet him. Just watch.



I’d write more but Madigan is busy trying to shove her entire body between me and the laptop so I guess that means it’s time to go to bed.

love, elizabeth

What a sweet video! And I understand what you mean. We just have our two cats now, but having a pet is really the best.

That video makes me cry. It's so sweet. And I totally agree. Dogs just have so much personality that it's hard to feel miserable when you get home and they're barking and wagging tails. Sigh. Love doggies :)

I have two cats that really are like my children, but I am a dog person at heart! One day, I will have several big, drooly dogs! Happy to hear your fur baby is feeling better :)
