A boy and his dog
A love that will remain forever
Etched in their souls

The day we brought her home, she was just a baby still...as was he. She was three month's old, he was 18 months (or thereabouts).

He was so scared of her, jumping up onto the couch...this strange bouncy creature invading his safe place...his home.

One day of screeching and hopping up higher than she could climb, that was all it took. The next day, he stepped a sturdy foot onto the floor and gave her a hug. He made her HIS dog, his best friend for life.

If only you could see the two together. There is no other in this house that she respects with a single word, as much as this boy. That is truth. She loves him like no other.

They are best friends to the point that he even thinks of her when we're away for a few hours. His thoughts become words, "I'm going to hug her up when we get home".

LJ, I didn't edit that...and I can't stand the errors but I'm not going to delete it. It is what it is and I just won't re-read it because it will frustrate me.

This is the truth of the pair...they're forever bonded, we can be sure of that :)

This is a photo that doesn't even need words...the love between Heather and her sons...her sons and their dog...should be the basis of a movie. Nice photo Heather!

Days of scratches and losses,
loyal friend comes to me.

Days filled with tears and worry,
steady companion listens to me.

Days bursting with joy and laughter,
wagging protector joins my fun.

A wet, black nose to sniff you and tickle your fingers and toes making you giggle and scream in delight.

A bright pink tongue to wipe up your tears and kiss that tender place on your knee.

Warm soft fur to touch, warm soft fur to hug, warm soft fur... to give a belly rub.

Big brown eyes that listen quietly and intently to all your dreams, all your fears, all your hopes.

That's his best friend. A boy and his dog.
