There is a multi-colored, furry, 4-legged animal about 3 feet tall or so that runs around this planet with a big, goofy smile on his face like he owns the place. (peeing on everything that he claims for himself.) His butt waggles from side to side when you say his name and his frenzied tail knocks all different types of things off of the coffee table as he gallops by. (Usually delicate, breakable or expensive things.) He spends his evenings sleeping in inconvenient, perpendicular patterns in a king size bed. In his dreams he’s an action hero and he likes to punch anyone in his general vicinity in the face with his smooshy paws. He enjoys sitting in the empty bath tub for no particular reason and discovering new and exciting ways to eat from the garbage. He delights in dangling his large head outside of the car window at 65 mph and letting his cheeks flap in the wind. He never sneezes just once, but, at least 2 times in row – each time with the radius of the spread more impressive than the last. He is the bravest, strongest, and most loyal creature I have ever known.
His name is Toby.
And this week’s 52 project theme is absolutely perfect for him. If you haven’t figured it out by now – Toby is my furry child. There is no other dog in existence that more boldly comes to my mind when I think of ‘Kisses’ than him. As a matter of fact, there is no other living being on the planet that I would rather kiss. I could literally sit here all day, writing of all the reasons why Toby is the best kisser I’ve ever known. But instead, I think I’ll just get on to it. 🙂 Recently, I spent the most incredible day at the beach with my sweet little (okay, big!) pup. Here, I am – the luckiest girl in the world getting kisses from the handsomest man in the land…
And hey! I don’t let Toby do all the kissin’! Sometimes I get a turn to smother him with cuddly love and kisses..
He is my heartbeat, my light, my everything.
My happiest moments are next to him.
I’m so glad to have gotten the opportunity to share a little bit more with you about one of the strongest positive forces in my life. He drives me to be better as a person and in my business. He is both my motivation and my unfailing support. And of course, he is my endless supply of kisses. 🙂
And if you recall, the best part of this Project 52 thang is that it’s a blog ring! So click on over to my friend and fellow Boston Dog Photographer, Blue Amrich to see who she’s been kissin’! Click all the way around the ring and end up right back here with Toby and I!
Until next time!
