NaBloPoMo Meet My Dog Linus

I love that term NaBloPoMo.  It is getting me in the groove of writing. What a cool word to rejuvenate those creative writing juices and find the essence of why I want to write.  Partly it is to please my readers, but also it is important to me to tell a story.  A part of my story involves someone I want you to meet. It is my very dear friend Linus.  Linus sticks to me closer than a brother.  He is the love of my life.

That might be alittle dramatic, but when you see his photographs and understand what Linus has meant to me- you will get it! Linus came to my home in a cardboard box almost 13 years ago.  He was suppose to have been our sons’ best friend, but as fate would have it he became a mama’s boy. You guessed it!  Linus is a dog.  The last couple of years I suffered major medical problems.  I had a rather large brain tumor that thankfully was removed last year.  I ended up in the hospital for three weeks after it was removed and had months of rehabilitation as  I suffered a stroke and many complications.  When I arrived home, it was as if Linus knew I had went through the ringer.  He almost never leaves my side now.  He looks for me in the shower by putting his nose through the curtain.  He cuddles next to me anytime he can get and finds me within a couple of minutes if I have left one room to go to another. Animals are special indeed. He was healing to me and love all wrapped up in FUR!!  Here are some of my favorite photos of him I have taken with my Panasonic DMC-ZR1 or my Ipad 3 with Instagram:

    What a sweet story. The intuition that animals have is completely amazing. I remember our cat (he is gone now) would lay right next to Stef when she was a baby. When she started to crawl, they both went on adventures together 🙂 Our pets are a true example of unconditional love! We certainly could learn some lessons there! Thank you for sharing.

    Yep! That settles it. I am completely in love with your handsome boy, Linus. It’s so wonderful how dogs can be such comforting and healing companions. And I’m not sure any dog manages to cuddle quite as well as a Springer. Sending lots of hugs out to you and to Linus, too.
