Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 25th day of February, 2014.

WOW, almost the end of yet another month.

One month closer to spring and I am extremely happy for that …..

 

This morning when I was having a shower – I moved the shower curtain to see Mr. Alvin lying on the mat in front of the tub.

Just lying there.

I felt a tear well up in my eyes as I felt so perfectly loved and protected at that very moment.

He truly is my “best friend.”

What a cute little guy.

He spent a couple of days with his sister Sunday and Monday (and slept over Sunday night).

When I was finished work and had stopped by to drop off the car – he was up at the window looking out.

My daughter had planned that she would just come out and drive me home (very cold for walking).

I could see him jump off the sofa and I knew he saw me.

He barked that shrill bark of his and it broke my heart.

I felt like I was abandoning him.

He spent the night because the kids were off yesterday and I worked.

Always better for him to have company than not.

When I stopped by at their house after work last night to pick him up ….. he was again up at the window.

Looking out and when he saw me ….. he looked twice and then headed for the door ….. oh, my boy.

But I did feel guilty even though he was in the best hands possible.

The kids always tease me and I know it to be true that Mr. Alvin is truly a “Momma’s Boy.”

He is the son that I never had …..

Well time to zip off to work …..

Just wanted to share that with all of you ….. I think that sometimes people forget just how attached our pets get to us.

I know they are part of our family and after all we are all “animals” …… we just happen to be on two legs instead of four.

They definitely love us unconditionally …..

I wish for this Tuesday that everyone would love and show respect to the their pets and the animals around them.

Special Hello to: all those special pets in the world and my Alvin…. love you buddy….. you are the best.

Always, Carol and “me” Alvin …..
