It was brought to my attention that most of you didn’t know that I have an amazing side kick, Esmerelda. We call her Esme for short. When I realized I had only made remarks in posts about having a dog, and never sharing this hairy beast, I had to change that.
Esme is eight years old and a black German Shepherd. She is faithful, loving, and has such a kind heart. There is only one drawback, if you knock on the door, she goes into I didn’t invite you mode. Now, if you have a Dream Bone in your hand or something really tasty like a Ham Sammy, she most likely will let you in if you toss it to her and immediately sit down. She’s not quite Cujo unless she sees a chipmunk. I have to pause in writing this post because someone wants to eat.
Esme at 11 and 13 weeks old. She stole my heart as soon as I brought her home.
Esme and her sister Esther became a part of our family after our beloved chihuahua, Marge, passed away. I never thought in a million years I could ever love a dog as much as I loved him. Marge was a boy, I know…odd, but it fit. I was wrong, I love her endlessly and is truly a best friend. Unfortunately, we were only blessed with Esther for five years before illness took her too soon.
Esme and Esther, they were truly sisters. Fight one minute and love each other the next. So Linda, I can completely relate.
Esme has changed a bit since Esther has passed. She is more spoiled, vocal, and she has learned some sign language. It’s fun to be able to communicate without words, I twirl my finger in a circle to tell her to wipe her feet at the door. Now if she could hold the doggy wipe and wipe her paws when raining it would be amazing!
So when I am creating, she is laying beneath my desk with her head on my foot. I don’t think my creations would be quite the same without her by my side. There is nothing better and more pure than loving and being loved by a dog. I love seeing everyone’s pets and the crazy things they do. I hope you continue to share your pets with all of us.
We hope you have a beautiful Sunday!
