I grew up reading the Sunday comics. In particular, I grew up loving the Peanuts because my mom was/is a huge Snoopy fan. And let's be honest, what's not to love about Snoopy? I remember we had Peanut's book called Happiness is a Warm Puppy which depicted Snoopy dancing across the pages with quotes reminding us of the simple ways in which a dog makes life great.
Every morning when I wake up the first thing I do is scratch our dog's head. Her name happens to be Peanut - but was not named after the cartoon. Peanut sleeps at my hubby's feet every night. When I come back after a shower the next thing I do is kiss her head. Most of the time she's awake and rolls over for a quick tummy rub. Since she is part husky her fur is thick and soft underneath. She is a beautiful dog and I love sharing that moment in time with her every day. It's just so peaceful.
