my best four-legged friend

lounging on a Saturday afternoon

When I'm sad, I swear she can tell, and she'll come up to me so very gently, and just put her head in my lap, her paw on my leg. When I'm happy she's right there with me too. She knows me. Some people may think it's crazy but I feel like she can read my mind and is more in tune with what is going on than anyone gives her credit for.

Madeline is the sweetest little thing you'll ever meet. To me, she's more like a little person, and if you were to spend time with her I'm sure you'd feel the same way. I'm so proud to be her mama, and I can't wait for her to someday soon have a new doggie best friend when we adopt a second pup. Madeline is the greatest. She's the biggest love bug in the world, and today, I wanted to dedicate a whole post to her, our darling little Boston Terrier!

If you have a pup you just love with all of your heart, post a photo of them in the comments, or make a little "I love you" post on your blog and link here! I'd so love to see your favorite four-legged friend.

Happy Wednesday!

I look creepy but look at HER!

  4. She is the cutest! My Grandparents have a BT as well, named Zita, shes amazing! I'll have to post a picture of my Chloe sometime soon. There is nothing that compares to the love of your pet! <3

  5. My blog is like, 90% posts about my pets (http://unicornpara.de/category/pets-and-husbands/) but here's an overview:

    My old cat Claire, she was recently diagnosed with diabetes but she's taking twice-daily insulin injections like a fuzzy pro. I've had her since 1998.

    My two dogs! Dougal (the big one) is a Muttly Mutt from Muttburg and is a rescue dog from an Inuit village in the Northwest Territories- before he was flown down to Vancouver he'd never seen grass, only snow! I share custody of him with my ex so he's only at my house in the afternoons/some evenings. Georgie, my new baby puppy Pomeranian, the dog I've wanted since I was a teenager. She's the friendliest, happiest dog in the history of all dogs. These two are best friends.

    My husband's surly Pomeranian/Chihuahua Kichou. He's so cute and but he doesn't like anyone but my husband.

  6. Aww. Your description of Madeline reminds me of my little Kudra. I truly think of her as my baby and cannot imagine being without her. I've posted pictures of her on my blog. Check her out if you have a chance.

    She's a shiba inu. She looks like a little fox and is the sweetest doggy.

    I know exactly what you means about pups being like people :) I love my sweet Sammie.

  8. I love my chihuahua/italian greyhound mix, Auggie. I've made a lot of posts about him, but there are a couple of pictures in this recent post: http://dontworrybaby.wordpress.com/2010/10/18/hiatus/

  9. I remember few years back I was very very scare of dogs until I met my husband. He introduce me to the pit-bull and our terrier. They are truly amazing and you are 100% right. I love them more than cats. When my husband and I have a disagreement all I have to do is to point at my husband and our terrier barks at him. Or when he doesn't wake up our terrier is my alarm clock.

    Here is a pictures of one of our dog:

    They are truly the most loyal companion!

  10. What a sweetie Madeline is! When do you plan to adopt another?

    Here is a post about my baby. Thanks for the prompt! I've been meaning to post something about her. :)

  11. Pugs and bostons are my top 2 favorites, and i already have a name picked out for the day i can give my little pug Olive a Boston friend. :) And I'm the same way, I swear that Olive is the best thing in the world. When we first got her, I just wanted to call in sick and be with her 24/7... and I'm never one of THOSE people, she just does that to me. :)

    my latest post is a picture of her sweet face - take a look. :)

  13. That is how I feel about my dog Czara. While I love both of my dogs, Czara is so intuned to my emotions that it feels like she can read my mind! I have a few photos of her on my blog, but the problem is that she is black lab (and boxer) which makes her very hard to photograph!

  14. I love all my dogs to pieces (sunbathers here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lowlywyrm/4754050332/in/set-72157624302968917/) but dylan is the dog of my heart. she's been through everything with me- the deaths of my parents, a decade of growing up through my twenties, into my marriage and wonderful new life with my husband. she's just the best. she knows me better than any person, i think. we were made to love each other. sigh. here she is in her favorite place in the world: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lowlywyrm/4752881245/in/set-72157624302968917/

  15. Love this post, so cute. I also have a little girl boston, she was rescued from a mill, so I got her when she was 2. Bostons are just the sweetest, funniest little pups ever, I love them. Here is my blog post about my little BT Darling Belle.

  16. aw! :)
    With everything that is going on (particularly me unexpectedly staying with my parents while my husband is overseas- they're dog haters), we had to find new homes for our precious dogs. :( I miss them every day!

  19. I love Boston Terriers! I've been looking for a friend for my dog, Davey, who is insanely smart & is the same way your dog is to you. I post him all the time on my blog but here's a picture of him!

    He's the coolest!

  20. Awhh, she is adorable! I fully believe that dogs (and cats!) have much more insight and personality than most people give them credit for! Just spend a day with one of mine, never a dull moment :)

  21. Dogs are amazing creatures. I miss mine so much!! She lives back in CA with my dad. She always made me happy and I've had her since I was a little girl. She just turned 9 at the beginning of October. :)

  22. I'm so glad you asked us to do this because i LOVE sharing pictures of my Boston terrier! He's not quite as sweet, affectionate as yours. He is but he's very playful(he's still quite a pup). I have pictures of him all over my blog. OBSESSED

  26. Boston terriers are so freakin' cute!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I was browsing through this book on dog varieties today, and it mentioned how sweet Boston Terriers can be. so nice timing!

    I looove dogs and wish I had one, but I'm not stable enough with my schedule to get one yet, and my boyfriend is more of a cat person (despite his ridiculous cat allergies, for some reason)

    Love the last pic of you two!

  28. I don't have a pup, but I have a hedgehog who I love so much!

    Lots of people think hedgehogs would have no personality, be grumpy, not do anything, etc. but she is fantastic!

    When I got her she was so scared of everything, and it was hard to even get her to come out of her ball.. now after months of handling and playing with her, she is the friendliest little thing! I am so happy I decided to get her!

  29. I blogged about my French Bulldog, Buddha, a few days ago. He knows when I'm happy or sad too.. He's always able to make me laugh. He makes my heart melt :)

  30. Madeline is such a sweetie! My frenchie named Lily is my BFF. I'd do anything for her really.

    She has her own flickr album (how can I pick just ONE?)

  36. Aww, sweet - we got a new beagle puppy two weeks ago, and I'm in the half-praying-for-patience/half-oh-my-gosh-you're-adorable-I-love-you phase.

  40. dogs are the best. i don't know what i would do without them in my life!

    there are two dogs in my family - daisy duke, who was a birthday present from my parents,
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/kellyannphotography/3988977719/in/set-72157622534143068/

    and her brother, jack (he's in love with cameras and always has to be really close to the lens;)),
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/kellyannphotography/3989735024/in/set-72157622534143068/

    they were the closest to each other out of the entire litter of puppies, that we just couldn't bear the thought of separating them. they love each other so much, it's so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a brilliant post. Thank you for inspiring me to capture a little bit of my cute Chinese Crested: http://projectlorna.blogspot.com/

    Dogs are truly the best people in the world and if we could live life a little bit more like they do the world would be a much happier place.

  42. four legged friends, huh?

    madeline is so sweet- i can't wait to have a doggy and a boston terrier is one of my top breeds- they're just so sweet and silly looking!

    but, i do have two cats, and they are like my babies. i love them so, i have a weekly feature dedicated to them:

  44. oooooh how adorable. I love how she's smiling in that second photo with you! I love animals.

    My best four-legged friend is my bunny rabbit Willum. He's the funniest, silliest animal you could imagine. He likes ginger biscuits, drinks herbal tea, goes crazy for dried fruit and begs when you go to the fridge.

    Here's a blogpost with him eating an almond croissant:

    http://missmacchiatoloves.typepad.com/blog/2010/09/all-quiet.html

    In winter he'll come and sit on the electric blanket with me and watch movies, or shove his head under my hand so I stroke him!

  46. It's so true that pups know exactly how you're feeling and are extra sensitive when you're sad or depressed. I lived 22 years without a pet and now that I have a dog I can't imagine her not being around.

    Loving the pet love!!

  52. Thank you so much for this post!
    Today our Oliver (this one here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/47314283@N02/4876436086/) is kind of sick (nothing serious), but it's enough for me to decide I'm staying home all day with him. He's always with me when I'm sad or ill, and even if I'll never be so sweet and understanding like a dog, I can try to do my best! :-)

  57. that is too sweet.
    you'll have to let us know how she reacts when baby Henry is born. i've always wondered if most dogs get jealous of losing some attention.
    i know i have a Yorkie who is a year old, and when I have my two year old niece over she gets jealous and try's to steal her spot on the couch and will sit on her. she also loves people, and loves licking people, little ones especially and i cant imagine having a baby around because she would want to lick its face all the time!

  58. Oh!! So glad you did this. I have always wanted to show off my little pups, and you gave me the perfect excuse to do just that! They just seem to make my life a little bit sweeter!

  62. Puppy dogs are the best of the best :)

    My boy, Owen, is the sweetest, most wonderful friend I could ever hope for. He is a bernese mountain dog he's only 2 1/2, but sadly they don't have very long lifespans. It breaks my heart to even think about him not being here... but it breaks my heart even more to think that he might not be able to meet my future babies. I'll just love him to bits in the present and keep my fingers crossed for the future!
    I ought to do a full-fledged post for him, but in the meantime I have a bunch of silly pictures of him on my blog - http://itwasjustlikethat.blogspot.com/

    Madeline seems like a real doll!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Oh my word, I hadn't been on my blog for ages (bad blogger!) and I just checked it and you commented on my post! I screamed when I saw it and got all of my friends to come and see! It feels like a celebrity said hi to me! Thank you thank you thank you!
