"Children and dogs are as necessary to the welfare of our country as Wall Street and the railroads." Harry S. Truman

Today, I spent some time with my daughter, my friend and her dog Bella. Bella is a love. She greets you with her voice when you first arrive and showers you with kisses until you almost pee your pants laughing. I don't think there is anything as pure as the love of a dog. They love you unconditionally and would do anything to please you. Just look at that smile on Bella's face! I don't think there is anything more wonderful unless, like Harry S. Truman says, it is children. They, too, love unconditionally, shower you with kisses until you almost pee your pants laughing, and would do anything to please you. I don't think it is an accident that Harry S. Truman has put dogs and children in the same category. They are the essence of pure love. What an incredible reminder to us.


  1. Bella is, well bellisima! What a pretty girl! Those eyes!

    I can't imagine my life without Cheddar, he is truly my best friend....making each and every day with him and his undying enthusiasm for life worth living. Always makes me smile.

  2. Bella actually looks like she has a smile on her face...what a beautiful dog. I say they're our earth angels here to teach us unconditional love by their example. No home should be without kids or dogs or both!
    Have a lovely weekend.

  3. Oh, I agree...just look at that smile!! Happy weekend!
