The Orangies! A toast to our beloved pets!

I don’t know about you, but have hundreds of photos of the pups on my phone 🙂

Action shots, sleeping shots, playing with the ball shots, belly up shots….and they all make me smile! Today, while I was going through my computer looking for a photo of a art piece, I found some early shots of our Kaya and her 10 puppies!

We kept one of her pups, the dear Smudgie, and the two of them lived blissfully and happily together for years and years 🙂 We still have sweet Kaya, and I am grateful daily for her kind disposition, beautiful face, ever wagging tail, exuberance over the ball and/or treat, her nudging nose (if you stop petting her for a second) and even her snoring.

She is a love. pure love.

Do you have a wonderful companion that adds to your days? Makes you laugh? Is an important part of your family?

I want to send a smile your way, and a loving nod towards you and your very own sweet pets, they are the best! xoxo
