ABBY ...


                      QUITE  THE  POSER...

Photo by Nicole Marie @ Nicole Marie Photography

This is just one of the photos from Abby's recent photo shoot...oh, yes...she's a model now!  A super model as far as I'm concerned.  She was so good as our super talented photographer friend Nicole snapped away all afternoon. I'm told there are plenty more pics coming soon, but for now these captured our hearts.  If you notice in the pic above, I was trying to match her to our little pillow behind her!  The necklace she is wearing actually belonged to my mom! Who would have guessed it would fit our little tweeny doxie pup!  Well, she's not actually a pup can see by the white around her nose and toes which used to be all tan. She'll be ten in April! 
She's a great companion and so patient...obviously! ;)

She Waits  
when I walk in the door, 

she greets me

with un-ending  kisses 

like a long lost love... 
she showers me

with more adoration

than I deserve…

when I shed a tear

she wipes it away

with a soft, knowing kiss of compassion…

she comforts my soul

as she teaches me

what love should be!

she wants one thing…

she wants me!

she stays by my side every moment of the day, 
as I seem to forget my companion's plea,

with her sweet love tap on my knee,

can we play?!  oh please, can we play?!

I reply, "not yet but pretty soon",

as she resigns...

with her head on my lap

she takes me at my word,

hope reflected in her eyes...

a little sigh now and then

to remind me  
my best friend waits by my side.

Oh, I LOVE Abby! What a sweet girl. My kids love to put Lambeau in all sorts of jerseys depending on the sporting event of the day...she'd be much happier with an elegant necklace :) Now I need to check out her show~

Hope your weekend is as marvelous as you are, my friend...did you get the freaky storms last night? Just south of the city there was 4-6 inches of hail!

Lizzy, I've seen your adorable pics of Lambeau all dressed up and loved them...she's such a good sport! I know she'd also look great in a necklace! ;) We didn't get the storms but it did rain heavy yesterday. The weather has been freaky, but I hope it stays warm! Have a great week-end!

Lorraine-your Abby is so beautiful, so poised, calm, and it's as if she speaks to you with those wise deep looks.
I'm pinning her photo, if that's OK with you, on Pinterest!

Your poem really touched my heart, especially these lines, and I quote;

"She comforts my soul as she teaches me what love should be."

Thank you for sharing, my sweet friend:DDD

Such a blessing to have such a loyal loving companion. I love how the poem ends, with your best friend by your side!!!!
