I have always loved big furry dogs. My first two dogs were lab mixes and they were fabulous dogs. Lucky and Shelby taught me how much furry beasties could enrich my life. Sadly, they have gone over the rainbow bridge and I picture them chasing endless tennis balls and eating all the snacks they can get their paws on.
Labs are lovely furry friends, but I had my heart set on even bigger, fluffier beasties. We brought home my first Newfoundland and I was hooked.
Daisy is a big furry cuddle bug. She is our resident Nap Queen. She loves to swim wherever she can and enjoys very short walks. During our Texas heat, she prefers walking to the end of the driveway and then turning around and heading home for a quick nap. She adores kids and story time and snuggling most of all.
After a few years, we decided that Daisy needed a sister and we brought home Diana.
Diana is a furry goofy Newfie. She prefers to think of herself as a wild beastie, unlike her more majestic sister. She loves to steal Daisy’s toys and regularly causes trouble. Diana enjoys a good run and works hard to keep our yard safe from pesky squirrels and suspicious-looking birds. After all that, this silly pup likes to have her paws held and rubbed until she falls asleep.
Mr. Snowy lived with us the longest of all our furry friends. He was by far the smallest furry beastie, weighing in at less than four pounds. He secretly ruled the house. Mr Snowy went over the Rainbow Bridge at the end of August 2020 and we miss his feisty furry self.
Our newest furry friend is Ms Betty Bunny.
Ms Betty is an explorer by nature and does not concern herself with the opinion of others. Except, possibly, Mr Snowy. Ms Betty Bunny and Mr. Snowy were the very best of friends. Now Ms Betty is our only bunny, she seems to have absorbed some of Mr Snowy’s passion for interior design and spends considerable time moving things about in her home, getting everything right where she wants it to be. An independent bunny.
