I need to step away from any thoughts of decorating, or clothing, or errands, or "to do's" today. Last night my beloved Golden Retriever, Scout, had a sudden and unexplained seizure. It was horrible. To experience someone you love, human or canine, thrashing and drooling and unaware is just simply, terrifying. Today I had planned on writing about something else, but I decided that this blog should reflect me and if it is going to do that, then today I need to share about him. I fell in love with him as he slept in my arms the first day we had him, and he's had me wrapped around his paw ever since. Because of him I have a special place in my heart for Goldens. They are truly, golden.

Today my thoughts are about him and all of the dogs that we make a part of our lives. For me, and many people I know, they are literally part of the family. They give us so much, and ask for so little in return. How many people can we say that about?
