Four Years of Puppy Love

Four years and one day ago, my life was missing something. Then the cutest puppy in the whole wide world came into our lives. I'm still smitten--as in head-over-heels, ear-to-ear grin, rose-colored-glasses happy.

Each day is better because of Kharma. The first thing I do when I get up is greet her--she stretches her "coyote nose" up to mine. Then I tell her how much I love her as she gets a massage from her ears way down to her tail. It's a wonderful way to start the day for both of us.
All my dogs have been wonderful, exceptional and much-loved. I've thought every one of them is the best, smartest and most-perfect dog in the world. But Kharma is, well, my heart-dog. And I'm trying hard to be worthy of her.

Here's my first post about Kharma, if you want to join me in a trip down Memory Lane.  I won't deluge you with a fond mom's myriad posts...but feel free to go back into the archives for April and May 2006 and read more of those short but sweet ramblings about our new baby.

It's our anniversary...so please excuse me while I go bake her some special treats and spend the rest of the evening spoiling my favorite furry girl.

Still crazy in love,


  1. Oh...she's darling! There is nothing better than puppy love...it is true pure love. I love reading about everyone's pets on their blogs...children...not so much...but I can never get enough about dogs. They are the very best thing in this whole world. I have four special pups in my life...actually, 12 if you count my Mom and sisters dogs...actually 15 if you count my best friends...no 18 with my other friends...no there are dozens of dogs in my life. And they are dear and sweet and funny and silly and caring in each of their own ways. I posted about my wonderful Violet last week...I wish I'd been doing the blog when she was a puppy...I would have loved to have had a record of her when she was a little fluff ball. I'll be sharing more in the weeks to come about my others...please come by and see my Violet.

    I'm so glad you posted about the anniversary of your favorite furry girl, Kharma.

  2. Such a beautiful love story. Some warm and fuzzy pets can really steal our hearts. Happy Anniversary.

  3. There is nothing more precious than a good puppy. I have had some that I seriously did not like and then their were those few who won my heart. They get to be like children to us then and better company than some people I have met. LOL!
    Happy anniversary!

  4. Beautiful story! And Kharma is so cute! You are lucky to have such a wonderful friend in your live!

  5. What a beautiful dog! One of the best things in life is the companions that we find in our animals.

  6. Wow, time has flown by! 4 years?! Crazy! Hope you enjoyed your celebration, and here's to many more years of puppy love!

  7. Happy Birthday Kharma!!! She is such a sweetie and the perfect companion for you. :)
