A Friend Thing.

What would we do without friends?  Having good friends is Fantabulous!!!!  I think I've said this many times...

Have you ever heard that old saying......"Friendship isn't a big thing, it's a million little things."
A million little Blessings and more.   I have said, over and over again, how Blessed I am to have so many wonderful, BEST, friends....

Sam is my BFF forever and forever..... till the end of time and even beyond (if it's possible).     We learn from each other.....we teach each other....we follow each other.   It's kinda like this:  When we are alone, we are each other's shadow....If one of us needs to cry, the other will always have a shoulder to cry on,  If one of us needs a big ol' hug, then arms are opened wide. 

I am extremely thankful for my other Best Friends.... Best friends are never afraid to tell you when your pants are unzipped or when you have dirt on your face!  Now...., when it comes to an escaped booger that is hanging on the end of your nose.....Best friends will laugh at you, then they will laugh with you, while holding a mirror in front of your face.
Don't you just love it?

Did you know that just like humans......animals can have best friends too?  And this my friends, is what this post is about!!

This is our adorable "Bella"...........she is the sweetest and has always been so quite and so sweet.

However.......since the kids moved in (and brought their dogs with them) Bella has changed!!   She now has FRIENDS!!

Let me introduce you to:  Nova and Buddy

This is Buddy..... I have to tell you, I love this dog.
some of you may remember a post that I wrote about him, a couple of years ago.   When Buddy would get a chance, he would dash out the door and run off for a couple of hours or so.  He always came back home, but while he was gone, the kids were always so afraid that he would be lost forever.

Not only is Buddy getting older, but he has a few vision problems and he also does not like loud noises.

This is Nova......a big ol' baby.   She is just a little over a year old, but she has the strength of Super Man.   Nova loves to play and play and play!!!

As I said.....before Nova and Buddy came to live here, Bella was so quite and rarely barked.   Seems that the other two love to Howl if they hear any kind of unusual sound (such as a siren or train) they go nuts!

Well, guess what?   We live kinda close to a nursing home, and there are many ambulances that pass by...everyday.   Almost every night around 3:00 A.M.  there is an ambulance that heads to the NH.   We also live close enough to the train tracks, and the train whistle sounds very loudly.    

These dogs go all out.....I'm talking about ALL OUT with their noises and to us it is hilarious.  Probably not so funny for our neighbors!!   

Bella has now joined in with her friends and she has come to realize that she can howl and bark too!   I'm thinking it's a Friend thing!!!  lol

When the other two make their sounds, Bella makes her small sounds as well.

These three dogs have become close friends and it is so much fun to watch them play.  They sleep together, eat together, and howl together!!

Isn't it sweet?

Enjoy Life!

What a cute story! There must never be a quiet minute around there. BUT it is also good to have a watchdog around! So you have it made! I love your sweet header picture!!

hooting and howling at bells and whistles, it makes ya wanna be a dog. They are all adorable. We have had a spaniel and a golden lab, but never a bella/sheitzu(I know, I slayed the spelling) I miss having howlers around.
Life and Friendships are Good

They are cuties and it's great that they're best friends! You make me miss having a dog, they're the best. Those guys will all take care of you and let you know if something is going on. Have a good rest of the week, Shug!
