40 tiny paws of love
New Years Day has come and gone and everyone celebrated the beginning of a New Year. Is it any wonder why or any coincident that the very next day is one of the most important days of our lives? Six years ago today, the birth of the family of the 24 Paws of Love was born. Which really started as 40 tiny paws at 2:45 in the morning. (If you want to be exact we had 48 paws with Mommy Dog and Daddy dog) Oh, how blessed we were from God that loved us so , that we were blessed with so much love at one time.
I will never ever forget that day in which Silver started giving birth from Zappa until the last one Fiona came forth into this world.
Sometimes (at times) it seems like it was just a dream. A dream that came true. Matter of fact I don't think I could have dreamed anything before that day of anything that could come close to the day of those ten births that morning when the 40 paws were born.
To watch them grow each day, little by little into the grown up dogs they are today on their six year birthday.
Each one of them have become my personal trainers. Each one of them have their own special way to help me make it through the day and life, which can sometimes really knock you down.
So no matter what happens to me in the course of the day, the highs, the lows, the good and the bad; no matter what I what I have to deal with all the people I deal with like people looking down on one another or people being mean to one another. The only thought that comes to my mind is Thank God I have my 24 Paws of love at home waiting for me when I get home. Soon as the car pulls into the garage and before the door starts to close I hear everyone singing, Daddy's Home, Daddy's Home! Music to my ears. When I open the door to the inside they are all standing there waiting for me to give me hugs and kisses. Except for Fiona, she mostly lays on the sofa knowing I will come over and her a hug and kisses.
I just want Brut, Silver, Zappa, Fiona, Chance and Blaze to know how much I love each and every one of them. No matter how many years go by they will never know how the 24 Paws of their love means to me.
Let me tell you everyone out there in blog world and beyond, The Paws in our house are the most real thing in our whole life. God willing and creek down't rise, starting this month, in this new year I will try to post once a weeek sharing in what way everyone of The Paws help me through thick and thin.
My first post will be about Daddy Dog Brut, my "Battery Charger."
So until next time, please take good care of yourselves and your pets, and please keep us in your prayers.
Happy Birthday Kids, We love you!
Love 24 Paws of Love,
