puppy kisses

Just wanted to share some kisses from Phoebe! She is one of the kissiest dogs I've ever met, is sometimes stubborn, and oftentimes disobedient, but sooooo lovable. We adopted her at about a year and a half and the rescue place said she'd been abused. She does flinch if you raise a hand to her, even if it's only to pat her head. She's gotten better about that, though.



They told us she would probably be very kissy since she'd been abused and would constantly be trying to tell us how thankful she is to be in a nice home. We thought it might wear off, but it hasn't. She continues to be a very affectionate dog. When we have a baby, I bet Phoebe will keep his/her hands clean! LOL.

Phoebe is a loner, until she decides she wants attention. When she wants to be with you, she jumps on your lap like she's a tiny puppy and cuddles up to you and gives you kisses. And, being part husky, there is a pile of hair on my floor like you wouldn't believe. Wait, I think I have a picture of last time we brushed her.


She is very pleased to meet you all and wishes you could pet her through the screen! But don't wear any dark colors around her, unless you want hair all over you.

Aww, such a cutie.
One of the moms at Caroline's school has a chow/lab mix, named Sheila. She's so pretty and very lovable, but HAIRY and sheds EVERYWHERE. A few weeks ago I was wearing black capri pants and stayed very far away from Sheila.

Very cute! Our cat has been loosing a lot of hair lately when we brush him. Looking at your picture makes me think we are crazy for thinking the cat is loosing a lot of hair! :)

She is so sweet! You can just tell by looking at her. Love those blonde lashes too! My sheltie has been shedding like crazy. I never thought I would wish for carpet, but every single hair shows up on hardwood floors!

I just don't understand how anyone could abuse a beautiful dog like her. Our dog Zizi had a pretty rough life before we found her in the desert. She's the best dog EVER and knows how good she's got it in our home compared to life before. Give your baby extra hugs and kisses from us.

Tell her that I didn't mean to scare her when I scratched her nose. I thank her for the kisses, though! :)

What a sweet girl! It make me miss my dog so much. She was a hairy, formerly abused dog, too, and could not get close enough to you or give you enough attention. She thought she was a lap dog :)
