My Furry Child Turns 6! October 22, 2008

My “baby” Lucas turns 6 today!

~My little dog – a heartbeat at my feet.  ~Edith Wharton~

I never thought I could love anything as much as I love Lucas.
He is the truest friend I have.  He is there for me in sickness and in health and loves me unconditionally NO MATTER WHAT.
No wonder he is (wo)man’s best friend….I know he is mine without a doubt!
How could anyone resist those big brown eyes and those out-of-this-world-adorable ears…and that cute nose!?!?
I love this 82 pound baby like a child.
We’re friends til the end.

My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am.  ~Author Unknown
The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.  ~Samuel Butler, Notebooks, 1912
Dogs’ lives are too short.  Their only fault, really.  ~Agnes Sligh Turnbull
I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.  For me they are the role model for being alive.  ~Gilda Radner
One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you’re feeling blue is that he doesn’t try to find out why.  ~Author Unknown
Properly trained, a man can be dog’s best friend.  ~Corey Ford
Dogs laugh, but they laugh with their tails.  ~Max Eastman, Enjoyment of Laughter
The more I see of man, the more I like dogs.  ~Mme. de Staël
They never talk about themselves but listen to you while you talk about yourself, and keep up an appearance of being interested in the conversation.  ~Jerome K. Jerome
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.  ~Josh Billings
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.  ~Roger Caras
