Puppy Love

They start out as puppies and grow into dogs! They come in all different shapes and sizes and most are loveable, cuddly companions! They hold a special spot inside the family!
In my whole family we have had a mixture of diffident types of dogs. From big and small to hyper and lazy! All of which hold a special place in my heart!
First Fenway Frank Hadley, he was my family first family dog. He was a miniature Dachshund. We unfortunately lost him in December 2015. It was a very heartbreaking time for me! Fenway and I had such a unbreakable bond. (Please read my very first post. Which is dedicated to Fenway and what an impact he made in my life! https://hadleybooks.com/2017/07/01/fenway-frank)
Then came Scout and Boo who are both Miniature Dachshund as well. These two pups belong to my oldest sister. Boo and Scout were named after my sisters’ favorite book “To Kill A Mockingjay” written by Harper Lee. Both pups came back with my sister when she moved back to Massachusetts from California. Boo lives with another sister. While Scout lives with me and the rest of the clan. Scout and I picked up right where it left off with our special bond. He is my shadow everywhere I go and will be right there waiting to cuddle every chance he gets. Boo is loving life with his life being the center of attention where he lives.
The forth dog to enter our lives was Captain or Cap for short. We got him exactly a month after the passing of Fenway. Even though we were not planning on getting another dog until Spring. We heard of Captain through a family friend, who was helping to find a perfect home for him. His owner loved him, however unexpectedly couldn’t take care of him. Captain needed a good, loving home. We went to go see him and fell instantly in love with him. Captain is a lab/hound mix or Super Mut. He is big and strong but just a big baby when it comes down to it. He enjoys his cuddles and belly rubs and his laps around the house. He has a big intimating bark but will lick you to death if he knows you!
The 5th dog is Penny, Penny belongs to another sister of mine. She is a lab/Pitbull mix and is the most well-behaved dog I have ever met. Penny is playful and could spend hours outside playing and chasing animals of the golf course where her dad works. However, at the end of the day she enjoys cuddling super close to my sister and taking a good long nap. I love it when she visits, and we get a chance to cuddle as well!
Last but not least, is Madeline or Maddie for short. She is my grandparents poodle. She was named after my grandmother’s favorite children’s book “Madeline” written by Ludwig Bemelmans. Maddie loves people and food. Even at the old age of 14 years old, she is still waging her tail and as peppy as ever!
From Fenway Frank to Captain & Penny to Boo & Scout to Maddie all of these dogs have a special place in my heart! From great puppy cuddles and puppy kisses to listening to my deepest secrets, there is nothing that compares to having a dog! Never mind a Mans best friend! These dogs are a girl’s best friend!!
