At an after-Christmas sale 3 years ago,
I found 3 ornaments that look just like
a few of the dogs in our family.
These three dogs were pound puppies,
adopted when they were well over a
year or two old.
Dee is always up for a party if it
includes food. She was adopted about
7 years ago by middle daughter and
her husband, and Dee loves babies.
Over the last 4 years, Dee steadfastly
guarded over two new babies until she
was sure no one was coming to take
Our youngest daughter adopted Wrigley
about 5 or 6 years ago. Wrigley was a
malnourished and terrified young dog.
It took years of love before he relaxed,
but he's always been the sweetest dog.
When he knows you, he loves you.
He also loves babies and even knew
his mother was pregnant before she did.
Now Wrigley won't let his pregnant
mama out of his sight -- which she and her
husband find adorable and a little irritating.
Wrigley's new baby is due in May.
Ginger has been gone for over
22 years, but I still tear up when
I think of her or see her picture.
She understood a conversation
- like "go get the kids up" -
and could answer too, by doing things
like shaking her head down for yes,
and kind of a clearing-the-throat
coughing when she wanted to laugh.
I'm hoping to find two more ornaments
for Einstein and Bailey, the other two
If anyone out there knows who makes
these ornaments, please let me know.
Have a Merry Christmas!
