I never, ever thought that I would become a dog person. I always like the idea of dogs; however, I had no desire to put up with them or clean up after them. Their constant shedding and desire to have my attention were always a little off putting.
Then one fine day about 3 years ago, we found our sweet little Beagle. Sullivan Oprah Riley-Taylor…. (Sully for short) changed my world. She was so sweet and small and beautiful. She loved us from the first moment we held her. She was a little lonely though so we had to go find her a playmate. That is when we got Rupert Ling-Ling Riley-Taylor.
My life was forever changed by these little hairy monsters and over the years, they have changed as well. They are so close and so sweet to one another but yet so very different. Sully wants attention on her terms. She lays in the bed and occasionally wants you to pet her and love on here. Rupert is always next to me. He is such a lap dog. He loves cuddling and laying under a blanket on the couch. He and I really have a lot in common.
Now as I write this blog, I realize just how much I treat these dogs like my babies. I can’t imagine my life without them and I don’t know how I ever survived before they rocked my world.
