Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Help! We need advice! What kind of dog shall we get?

Is this our perfect match?

I soooo want a dog. We haven't had one for years. Not because we don't love them; but because we want to be the right kind of dog/parents. I think I'm ready to take the plunge. But the question is; just what kind of dog will fit into our family? We are empty nesters with grandkids that visit us; so our canine friend must be kind and patient. We don't care for high energy jumpers and yappers; but we are walkers and can commit to daily walks. We have a big yard but may eventually buy a smaller place; but will likely always have some kind of yard. My hubby works full time and I work 6 1/2 hours per day during the school season with summers off. So we need a pet that can handle some alone time. I want a dog with a gentle face; like a golden retriever or spaniel has. Nice eyes are important. What do you think? What type of dog would work in our household? Send me your comments, I'd love to hear. Right now; Field Spaniels top my list; but I'm worried about leaving them alone. Thanks for your help!

Wow...big order. As you know, dogs are pack animals, so a single dog, left home alone for hours each day would take a pretty special dog. Good luck to you! (no advice, I'm afraid.
