Tender Moments

Why do we do what we do?
We do it for Connection
the love
and the understanding
You're welcome to tell us about the love or your life or send in pics.
I think in these times it might be good to realize how rich we actually are.
The above pics really show the true riches of life....at least to me and I'm sure for Leo.
The pics above are Mike and Leo having a Sunday morning together.


  1. Great posting and terrific pics.

  2. You know if Leo happened to be Leona
    the caption could read

    "Caught with the other woman"

    I`m starting to think Leo`s not going to "suddenly turn" unless it`s turn into a ham when the camera`s out.

  3. I know I posted this but I can't help but comment just how much this shows the true loving spirit of this dog. I am so thankful that I've been able to be a small part of his life!


  4. He really is just such a love bug. It seems that the connection with his humans that he lives with is THE most important thing in his whole life.
    I just don't know what he did before.....

    Pibble, he does "suddenly turn", he turns his head to give you a big smooch!

  5. I've wondered about our dog before we found each other. Why did her family feel tying her to the door of a closed animal shelter in Oakland and leaving her there very pregnant and very alone was such a good idea. Obviously she wasn't breeding fighting dogs. Once she was rescued, days away from her final walk, it took a little while,and one other try, for her to find her forever home.

    My husband, and I, along with our family and friends, adore her - she's loving, entertaining and intelligent. I can't imagine why anyone would throw her away, especially like that. As I type this she's 3 feet away from me sound asleep on her nesting ball in one of those weird contorted positions completely at peace with the world and her past. She is loved and safe. Dogs are so resilient - people can learn a lot from them about forgiveness, letting go and living in the present.

    Our dog suddenly turned too - into a wonderful companion and the light of our lives. I hate to say this, especially in public, I know we won't have her in our lives forever. When she leaves us it's going to be a really sad day. I do my best to enjoy her while I have her. I'm grateful her final day wasn't 5 1/2 years ago in the animal shelter.

    BTW - she is my first Pit Bull experience.

  6. Awww, that's so sweet! I can't imagine either why someone would throw that girl away!! She's a doll.I see that you're rich too.
    Thanks Maria....that gave me a tear!

  7. Maria,
    I got goosebumps reading Moo's story. We always say how lucky the dog is, (and she truly is) but how lucky we are to be touched by these wonderful creatures.

  8. Awww...cute pics!

    I totally get this bully love vibe thing! My pit bull actually adopted me nearly nine years ago. She was practically flagging me down when I passed by by her kennel in the shelter. Yup, it was love at first sight...just like being struck with cupid's arrow.

    And boy oh boy did Maxine ever 'turn'!

    She turned into my best friend, a sofa spud, a nanny dog, a CGC star, a puppy referree, etc...


  9. Awwww... my girl, Karma, is the same way. And I love the night time just before we tuck her and the kids into bed. She'll come and get on the couch with me, then lay her head on my shoulder and let out a *sigh*. We sit there and cuddle for a few minutes then it's off to her best bud's room for a peaceful night of doggie and kiddo dreaming.

    I ADORE that second picture btw! He really looks like he's thinking... "this is what heaven is all about".
