"Sigh. I'm trying to nap here. Is misting me with the garden hose really all that funny?" 

The art of camouflage..."They'll never find me here." 

"Uhhhhhh——Is it my favorite treat?!"     (Mika with her Christmas stocking.)

"Love. Ain't it grand?!"

Oh LeAnn, thank you soooo much for being such a beautiful 'mama' to a beautiful doggie! It made me so happy just reading your post. To know that some little rescue somewhere in this big ole' world is given a second chance.
I adore all animals but I particularly adore rescue dogs. Don't even get me started on my sister! She's the ultimate dog rescuer.
Again, thank you for putting a big smile on my face, but especially on my heart...
