And they call it puppy love...

"You made me love you... I didn't want to do it... I didn't want to do it..."

My dear, dear friends, before I thank you all for your lovely comments, before I even put down my bags, before I catch my breath and visit each and everyone of you, let me introduce you to ABBY!

It's Sunday night, we've just returned from the Purple Caravan with something more special than just great memories. We have brought back this good, sweet friend. Abby is 9 weeks old, she is a Jack Russell Terrier and I have to say, I absolutely love her! This love is totally new since I never had a dog before, in fact, up till now, I had considered myself a "cat woman" and while my love for felines has not died, I must admit, this puppy love has totally swept me off my feet.  My world has been turned upside down, caring for and training this sweet (but willful) little girl has taken me through so many wonderful and fun venues I have not had a chance to get a grip. These past two weeks are a blur. A mixture of feedings, walks, laughter, kisses, baths (Abby loves to dig :0) long naps, and this new sense of joy that makes my heart sing everytime I look at those sweet brown eyes...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Summer. I will be sure to visit you and catch up on what I've missed but now I must go and join Abby. All this excitement has left us very tired. Good night, it's great to be back!

  10. So very good to see you back happy and refreshed from your summer at the Purple Caravan Alina. And just look at what you've brought back - Abby looks delightful! Jack Russell Terriers are the sweetest dogs and wonderful companions.

    Thank you for taking the time to pop over to mine for a catch up. I just want to say that if you're looking for the Monday Poems from now on, you will find them (and more hopefully) on my new blog. The link is at the top right hand corner of my blog. I want to try and import all the previous poems on to this blog, if I can figure out the technology that is! I hope you like it - perhaps you could tell me what you think?x


  11. Oh, Abby is precious! I can see why it would have been so difficult to turn away ... There is nothing more beautiful than the pure and tentative love we receive from our furry-footed one's, for they give so unconditionally. I too am a lover of felines, however that last picture has me crooning for puppy love! :)

    Welcome home, Alina!

  12. Aw, she's gorgeous. Missing my puppy love and delighted to share yours.

  13. Hi Alina...thanks for your sparkling visit..and your beautiful words!! HUgs and Happy Autumn..wishing you much magic and joy and blessings to your newest family member!

  14. PRECIOUS! I added you to my blog roll! I hope that is ok...love your blog!!

  15. Oh wow, what a cutie! :-)
    I love Jack Russell's and Abby is a little star! She is adorable. I can totally understand how you feel about her!
    Ziggy had a JR friend who lived next door, called Mini. She used to visit us and play with Zig. They were so funny together. Jack Russell's have such a fun loving nature and are full of mischief! ;-)
    I'm pleased that I stopped by today to see little Abby.
    Love to you both and have many magical moments together!
