So yes for the second time, I watched Marley and Me. Why ??? I must be crazy because that movie always makes me cry the entire movie but at the end makes me realize how lucky we are to have our four-legged friends. When I grew up I had an English Setter named Chippy. My mother was allergic so Chippy had a huge pen and dog house and lived outside except in storms of course! He was my best friend . My mother would always scream my name and there I was laying in his doghouse sleeping with him or trying to feed him dirt with a spoon as I pretended I was really giving him food … Sixteen years later chippy died of old age he was also my Dad’s hunting partner and best friend we were all a mess he was a part of our family. Well a few years later my dad tricked my mom and got Bear, a Springer Spaniel, another love of my life. He got the puppy and left him in the yard for my mom to find, who was doing dishes and heard this crying haha. That was my dads plan all along.  She yelled there is something crying in the yard of course he went and grabbed this beautiful little baby and that was it she fell in love. For the next 17 years Bear was a part of our family and loved all of us unconditionally and dad took him hunting all the time.  He was the outfielder for when my Dad would pitch to me and Bear would retrieve the balls . Well as Bear grew older another dog passes to heaven he will always be with me. As an adult I got my first dog Named Cranston a beautiful Cocker Spaniel, and boy did he go through everything with me I had him for 17 years of my adult life until I had to put him down which was the worst thing I ever had to do but he loved me more than anything in the world and I loved him. It took me 3 years to even think about getting another dog and there he was another Cocker Spaniel baby boy named Maximu and he is with me and now 5 years old . He is my favorite thing in this world and I am so very blessed to have him with me everyday loving me the way he does. Love your four-legged friends they want nothing but love and well food and water haha and some bacon once in a while…
