She has had big paws to fill, but she has proven herself worthy of the task and she wears Valiant's little red blanket with dignity. I do believe Valiant would approve.
Months after losing Val, I told Krista and Lisa that I wasn't sure another dog would fit into our family well. I really wanted a dog that I could bond with (as "my" dog), but who would integrate into the family and love the boys and Daddy. I wasn't sure such a dog existed.
Pey Pey J. Moose (i.e. Paisley) doesn't just put up with her boys who smother her with affection. She dishes right back! When they wrestle with her, she wrestles back, enthusiastically. When they throw her ball, she fetches it and brings it back. When they call her, she always comes running. When they bite, she bites back. When they love on her, she loves right back. When they get out of the bath, she re-bathes them because they need it. Yet, throughout the day, she does not leave my side. I never have to wonder where she is... I only need to look down. She helps me with every task menial or important.
Each day she can be seen shadowing our great white dog, learning the ways of the Pyrenees, walking the fence line each morning. She takes this job very seriously, as does her mentor and it really is too much cute to watch.
Here... a great dog who brings us endless joy.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
I love her so much. This gift reminds me that one day my heart will again swell with love, just like yours is now. I feel like it’s waiting, poised for the right time.
Your beautiful writing makes my heart sing! Somehow, I knew that Paisley would fill part of the emptiness inside you...after loosing Val...after so many heart-rending disappointments on the real estate front. Little did I expect that she would step into Val’s paw prints and fit. Obviously, being so closely related to Arch Munster Cheese and Maisey the Amazing, she couldn’t be anything but perfect! I think this puppy was God’s idea implanted in my heart. Mercifully Dad totally went along with it. We are all deeply indebted to the breeder for her years of diligent work. Pey Pey J Moose is truly adorable....
