Sometimes having a dog is real nice.

THE DAY WE GOT HIM...8 MONTHS AGO


A COUPLE WEEKS AGO

Cause he makes you feel real special. (Can you believe he was that small? So short a time ago? He was such a cutie. Now, as many people say, he's a small horse:)

Dante was downstairs cuddled up by Clay's legs. Clay is playing video games...I was doing all sorts of stuff around the house. Every once in a while Dante would come up and check on me...then go back downstairs. So I finally got done with everything and settled down at the computer...and up comes Dante...he looks at me...and he lays on his bed next to the computer, where I'm at:) The thing is, many people might not realize this...but it's a huge sign. I know he decided to come lay up here, by me, cause he loves me so much and realized, "if something happened, I would half to run all the way upstairs to protect her. If she's staying up here...I should stay here. Just in case something happens." No joke. This is how doggies think. And my doggie is so sweet like that. So he's just snoozin away on his lil bed just a couple feet away from me...and I promise. The second I get up from this chair, up pops his head, and he will follow me wherever. I guess some people would find this annoying- but I kinda love it. Unless I'm doing dishes or something...but usually, when he's tired- it's pretty nice cause you just feel like a really special person.

Anyway. Dante can be a huge pain in the bum. But really, he makes up for it in ways like this. We love our doggie.

Danielle,

I heard that people look for dogs and alarm systems before they burglarize a house so that is kinda nice too.

Oh, and what's a blog book?

Sincerely, Lori

I love that feeling too. My boxer dog, Malu, does that too. She follows me into rooms if she can't see me. And if we are outside, she stays right by me to make sure nothing happens to me. She is not that protective over Rillz, just me. And I really like it!

The pictures of Dante are great. It is amazing how much he has grown. Stetson does the same thing with me when I am home during the day until Paul gets home. They make for great companions. Have a great day...love you..bye now..

Dante was such a cute puppy. I got all sweet when I saw him, just like when I see baby pictures.

You guys have THE coolest and smartest dog! I bet all the girl dogs love him. If only he had a bulldog friend at home...

Dante is a sweet dog, I can tell by the way you love and talk about him. I loved Brandy and I sent you a cute thing about the best babysitters, take a look at it you will laugh out loud. I love you and can't wait to see the things you are making out of older clothing. Hugs grams

when you said, "can you believe how small he was" I thought "can you believe how big he is!!" I loved your blog. I'm glad you love your doggie!! love you!! I'm glad you called earlier!

Good post. Love you, and Dante.

I couldn't agree more! I love being a dog person, especially when you don't have kids yet - they kind of just become your big, overgrown, slobbery kid.

I can't believe how much he has grown. I remember the first time I saw him. You were staying at Patty and Paul's. Anna went inside with mom and I refused because I was scared of the dogs. Now I can walk into any house with a dog and be okay. Except one. (Their dog is scary)! But Dante isn't. :)
