I’m linking up with Amanda at The Lady Okie and Megan at Semi-Charmed Kind of Life for the I Believe prompt today! (Megan is the host for The Winter Reading Challenge – and Summer Reading Challenge – that I had so much fun completing. It’s not too late to participate!)
Here’s just a sampling of my beliefs. You’ll probably think I’m weird when this is over and that I only wrote this to justify a lot of dog pictures. (Guilty!)
+ In always owning a Shih Tzu. The more of them that I can have, the better.
+ You can’t take too many pictures of films of your dogs.
+ My dogs are superior to every other dog in the world. They are funny, cute, and sweet. I am sure your’s are, too. Mine are just funnier, cuter, and sweeter.
+ In telling my dogs that I love them more times a day than I can count.
+ In coercing my family to Facetime with my dogs because they are cuter when they are moving than in still pictures. They are also cuter than me.
+ Owning a dog is therapeutic. Nothing helps you through a hard time like a dog who will do anything to get in your face and sit on your lap when you cry.
+ In Celebrating my dogs’ birthdays and anniversaries that they joined our family!
+ In making the dogs sleep in the kitchen. It pains me to put them out there every night, but they disturb my sleep. They seem like they sleep 20 hours a day, but they really do move around, make noises when they dream, and snore.
+ Laughter is the best medicine, sometimes. If you meet my dogs, you’d know why I am always laughing at them.
+ That I need to count my dogs before any extended family member leaves my house. We number off, one-two style, because I think someone might stick a Shih Tzu in their purse on the way out. My mom talks about how easy it would be to do all of the time.
+ Giving my dogs home haircuts has brought us closer together. Josie used to go to the groomer, but she hated it. And since they were on the expensive side, I would go longer between cuts. Since we got little Rylie, we use Scardy Scissors. They’re scissors that have changeable guards, like razors. It’s a little more time consuming than using an electric razor, but they don’t get freaked out by the sound. While they get super wiggly, I love laughing at them and grooming them.
