I love dogs. When I was little, mom and I were out shopping at fashion place mall when we happened past their pet store. I immediately fell in love with this copper colored puppy we saw in the window. Mom took me in and the workers got him out for me and we even got to go in a back room and play with him for awhile. We left the store without him and I cried all the way home. This was before the days of cell phones and she just didn't want to surprise my dad by coming home with an animal he knew nothing about. Luckily my dad had a soft spot for me and animals so we went back the next day and got him. I named him Cinnamon Muffin Morrison AKA Cinni.
I loved my Cinni and I did take the responsibility for him. I fed him, walked him, played with him, took him to the vet when I was old enough but his heart belonged to my dad. He was a great companion to both of us and was very sensitive to my dads health issues. Cinni came to know when dad was going into diabetic reaction and would come get me and or my mom. He even saved my dads life on two different occasions. Once dad died Cinni wasn't quite the same. Sure he was older but his little spark of personality wasn't there as much.
Cinnamon lived for 17 years and I happened to be home from college the day he died. I sure missed my friend.
Shortly after I moved into my townhouse, I started looking for another dog. My cousin Mary's friend had a dog that had just had a huge liter of Mini American Eskimo puppies. I went to visit them and most of the puppies had already been sold. This cute fluff ball was one of still unclaimed. I made the decision right then to get him and Micco joined my family as soon as he was ready to leave his mom.
Oh how happy Micco made me the 12 and a half years I had him. He got me through some of the roughest times I have faced so far. He was always happy and so fun to play with. Even when his health wasn't the greatest he could cheer me up. I can honestly say he was my best friend.
Micco died on the 3rd of July a few years ago, that was a very hard day for me.
Last night I, once again, added a little four legged friend to my family and life. My friend Kennya's dog had puppies and I made the choice to get one of them. He is a Yorkie with a spunky little personality. I haven't even had him 24 hours but he makes me laugh with the silly things he does. I can already tell he is has a stubborn streak in him. I wouldn't have been able to get it if it wasn't for the kindness and generosity of my neighbors a couple of doors down. They also have Yorkies and I spoke with them a few times when trying to decide whether or not to get him. They have offered to let him go over there during the day while I am at work so he isn't home all alone. He will start doggie day care tomorrow.
So everyone...I would like to introduce you to Cosmo!!
Spending some time this morning getting used to his new home.
He isn't so sure about the camera yet.
He sleeps with his tongue out.
