This is my favorite so far!

Fenway's capacity to love has never been tested. His enormous heart just keep expanding. Thus, the widest smile in his post today.

The ability of dogs to be so forgiving of humans -to be able to trust and love again never fails to amaze me!
There is a lot humans could learn from our four legged friends. xx

Jeanne said...

And she does, doesn't she?

Sharon said...

Thank you for reminding us of this very important lesson Sophie:)

Bruce said...

I know I love with my whole heart...and it's worth it!

Katherine Aucoin said...

Complete and unconditional love...even when they were puppies and got into mischief (ate the pool timer)and had to be fussed at, they still wag their tail when they see you.

HalfCrazy said...

Aww, just look at those doggie eyes!

Maria said...

very true, hard to do, but true

Sherri said...

What a sweetheart.

Neas Nuttiness said...

This is one of the reasons that I am so "in love" with animals, in general, and with mine in particular. No matter what I do...they love me with every fiber of their being!
Thank you Andrea and Sophie

Hilary said...

Mom says good advice is often hard to use, one loses a lot when hurt

I haven't had a dog in a long time. I've been too busy with my little ones. When I visit your blog, I ache a little to go and get a dog again. Those doggie faces just melt your heart :)

Oh my, how precious with her chin on her paw! Great lesson.

I like this one.

I just wanted to let you know that I've added your link to my blogroll so I remember to come by and visit you more often :)

I did originally have your link set up as one I was "following", but I have found it is too difficult to keep that straight!
