I just love Louise. She has that quiet dog energy. You know what I mean. She is sitting there next to you, and you hardly know she is there, and she will only bother you if there is something she needs (like a cookie :-)). Happy Black and White Sunday!
Sometimes I wonder if Louise is hiding or trying to keep the light out when she hides under her paws. I love when she covers her face with her paws, it makes me think of the kids game ‘Peek a Poo!’ Sometimes she does this because her ears are flapped up and she wants to move them down. But she was laying like this for a long time. Maybe she didn’t like the TV show that was on.
Love is a funny thing: you can’t see it, you just feel it.
I love Louise and I am sure that Louise loves me. I know by the way she wakes me up in the morning and how she reacts when I come home from somewhere. It’s the way she looks at me with those brown eyes. It is how she relaxes when I am near. But is it love really or is it just that I am the caregiver and the food source? Personally, I want to believe it is love. Many scientists say it is just an attachment or bond to the owner. But I say if it is not love, then what thing is it?
Louise – Do you remember when we first met in March of 2010? You were so shy and skinny then. Do you remember that itchy mange you had and the pain of that collar that was embedded in your neck? It took a while for you to trust us but you grew into such a loving and sweet dog in the safety of our home. Do you remember Mr, Squash E Bear? He went blind shortly after you came to live with us and you used to lead him around by his leash. You were such a good helper to him. He really liked you. And then when we got Sofie, I thought you would never talk to me again. You really did not understand this interloper into the quiet of your domain. But you and SoSo have become inseparable. I know that you can’t image a world without her. And I can not imagine a world without you.
We love you Lulu Belle and we are so glad you picked our family to be with. Happy 5th birthday. You have my heart now and furever, – Mom
