Happy middle-of-August (and my first Wednesday back from vacation!)
Ah, vacations. Who doesn’t love them? This one that I just returned from was especially wonderful – not only did I get to see lots of old friends, I got to see one of my oldest, dearest, SWEETEST friends in the whole world get married. (I’m a sucker for weddings – especially when I get to be a bridesmaid.) The vacation was the perfect mix of sightseeing, gossiping, and letting loose.
Ah, but then reality hits. Back home – back to work – back to laundry and grocery shopping and taking out the trash. I always get a little bummed.
And I WAS bummed….until Buffy came bounding in the door. I will never feel as loved as I do the moment Buffy sees me after being away for a week. It is unbridled, unapologetic JOY! Little whimpers escaping as she runs from me to my husband…tail going 90-to-nothing. I can almost hear her saying “You’re home!!! YOU’RE HOME!!!!” She doesn’t care where I went…she doesn’t care how long I was gone…I’m home now. That’s all that matters. (And that’s reason #1,349,847 why I LOVE dogs.)
But you aren’t visiting this blog to hear about my happy reunion. You are here, no doubt, to look at adorable pictures of pooches. (What else is the internet for?!?) So, let’s do this!
(Don’t forget – you can submit your own pup picture!! Don’t you want to show all your friends how amazingly awesome your dog is? Read our submission guidelines here and then get to emailin’!)
