In a mother's heart there's a desire to nurture and care
for little ones that never goes away.
At least I can speak for myself, and don't
think I'm alone.
Many of my empty nester friends have gotten
pets at this stage in life.
That need to "mother" always has
a place in our hearts even when our
kids are grown and gone from the house.
These were my thoughts as I painted
this week's painting.
This past week I've been dog
sitting for the little white pup in
the next picture. His name is Finley
and he's a sweetie.
The little black cutie is my new
He's only 8 weeks old.
He's the most adorable little Berniedoodle.
Here he is after sniffing around in
some mesquite leaves.
He's the sweetest puppy ever!
I just love him.
Growing up, I had an Aunt that
was a golden retriever breeder.
I have the fondest memories of going
over to her house to play with all the puppies.
Finley's heading back to his home tomorrow.
He'll be missed, but I'm really looking forward
to my future visits with Gus.
Hoping you're having a wonderful
week so far.
