My Soul Mate

When you love a dog, like I love this one,
seeing him in pain puts pain in your own heart.

Grimace had a fatty tumor removed from his chest last Friday.  So grandma when into "nurse" mode Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

He did fine!

But his grandma saw every change in his face, every painful move of his body, every change in his normally sunny personality, and smothered that dear pooch with love and affection all weekend.  That included sleeping on the floor with him for 2 nights, carrying him up and down my front steps so he could pee, feeding him by hand when he couldn't reach the bowl, and putting ice compresses on is "boo-boo."  And he responded by sticking by my side - following me to whatever room I was in the whole darn weekend.  He couldn't be talked out of that!!

My God, I love that dog and he loves me.
In fact, he loves me like no other being on the face of this earth.
I should be as wonderful as he thinks I am!


  1. Unconditional love. What a wonderful thing to have in your life.

  2. Thank goodness your Grimace is okay . . . and that you survived too. I know what "love that dog" is all about. We love different dogs and each know and feel overwhelmingly the bond and love of our own.

    You'll always be his WONDERFUL . . .

  3. Oh poor boy! Hope he's healed soon!

  4. Aww. You and Grimace are lucky to have each other.

  5. So glad you both made it through! Looking forward to giving you both a hug!

  6. That picture is absolutely precious! So expressive.

  7. I have to disagree with "loving like no other being on the face of this earth". I may not follow you around, but Grimmy and I may have to battle over that one...too bad he's so darn cute!!!!! I'll give him this battle...only because he's had surgery ;)

  8. I have to agree with all that was commented above. I am glad he is better. He looks so sweet in the photo. And you are both lucky to have each other :-))

  9. You are a me at and give me your mailing address.

  10. I didn't grow up with a pet, but had a dog in my adult life. I couldn't believe the love I had for our dog, and how unconditional her love was for us. What a sweet boy Grimace is....hope he's feeling better.


Yes, you do want to comment! I can see it in your face:-)
