True Friends

Natalie and Sweet Pea

I am a firm believer that having a pet, especially a dog :) while growing up makes one a better adult. I believe a pet makes an adult a better adult, too.

I got permission from my blogging friend Gina at Purdy Wallcovering to post this picture of her daughter, Natalie and her friend, Sweet Pea, sleeping. How sweet is this picture! It brings tears to my eyes to see this sweet innocent child asleep with her friend next to her, making sure no monsters find their way into her dreams.

I have a photo of my granddaughter in a very similar position with one of her pets. She loves to nurture it.... all children should have at least one pet they can love on.

One of my favorite movies is 'My Dog Skip', it gets me every time I watch it.:)

Gina, you are very welcome. I think this is just the cutest picture!!! Natalie and Sweet Pea are both beautiful - I think I see a halo over their heads.:)

Just have a box of Kleenex with you when you watch My Dog Skip.:) It is just a fabulous, meaningful movie. I wish there were more like it.

Thank you for allowing me to post your little angel and your sweet pea.

Hello, Kate, I left a reply to you earlier, but I guess blogger ate it? I was thanking you for stopping in. I was my pleasure to post this lovely photo. Natalie and Sweet Pea are just beautiful.

Junie Moon, thanks for stopping in. I meant to tell you when I left a comment on your blog, that I love the name 'Junie Moon'.
Pets most definitely make life richer. I'd have one, or two, of everything if I could.:)
