Saffy looks up at me, tilts her head, and fluffs her ears forward.

She sits and waits for me to pet her head, scratch her belly, speak calmly and lovingly to her. Her tail wiggles her entire backside, wiggle-waggle, back and forth. She finally stands up and licks my hand, or chin, or ear.

She is pure joy.

Pure delight.

Pure companion.

She is my dog. My little nugget of cuteness. I love that girl.

I always knew I loved dogs, but she has been so good for my soul. When I let her into the living room, she jumps right up next to me on the couch, and gives me that look. The look that says, “wanna play?”

I go thru so many emotions everyday with that little girl. joy. love. frustration. annoyance. but at the end of the day, when she stretches out to sleep, I’m happy.
