She is under my chair as I type this. She is always nearby watching me. I love this little dog. She was a gift from Frank.

She is usually under the bench and I have to be careful not to step on her. She will be five years old this November.

These were snapped on my daughters front lawn yesterday when we went for a visit.

How she loves to run. She barely touches the ground and her fur is so long you cannot see her little legs.

She never goes very far..and never where she can't see me. She is brave and gentle.
She is all the things I would like to be. ~Smile~

Pets..they mean so much to all of us. After Frank died..she was never far from my side. She adored Frank and I used to think she favored him.. and he deserved it.
She was a Christmas gift... Mele means Merry in Hawaiian I think. Mele Kalikimuka is her full name. If are from Hawaii...and I didn't spell it right...forgive me. I tried.
Hugs and have a wonderful Monday..

  20. Hello~I've just strolled into your blog for my first visit from Miss Debbie's... I'm originally from OC California. My whole family lives there and in Riverside too. When I married we moved to my hubby's hometown in the(rainy) Northwest and have been here for 26 years.
    Sometimes this blog world can really be smaller than we think.
    My brothers name is Frank, after my dad.

    Your profile story was very heartening.

    Your precious bundle of love is a cutie. I adore Poms!

    I've enjoyed taking a peek at your past posts.
    I've bookmarked you my favs.
    I look forward to coming by your charming blog again.
    Come by for a visit. The company would be nice. I always like meeting friends from home.

    Sweet wishes,

  21. Mona~
