Missy Award Nominated

Mandy,http://shoefulofdrool.com/ , was kind enough to nominate All My Canine Companions for the Missy Award.  Thanks from my pack to yours.

Three things are required of me, and that is to answer two questions and to link back to http://ivonnemontijo.wordpress.com/2013/02/23/the-missy-award/

The questions are:

What inspires me to write?  I write anytime I feel passionate about something, whatever it may be, and I need to vent.

Why do I love animals?  I love dogs above any other animal because when I am in the company of a dog, whether this dog is my Alex or any of the dogs staying with us, I feel happy, peaceful, and safe.  My first dog, Casey, taught me how to say, mi amor, my love, in Spanish.  This was something that I never thought I could ever say because to me, those two words in Spanish, have always had a tremendous amount of significance as well as a high degree of intimacy.  The first time I told Casey, “mi amor,” I had to make sure that those two words came out of my mouth.  Wow!  It was me.  He was my very first teacher.  How can I not love dogs?  They all, in one way or another, have taught me and continue to teach me so much about life, love, new beginnings, forgiveness, etc.

Thanks a million for the nomination.  Alex is getting a special treat tonight.
