Lulu is my saving grace.
She is a small, sweet and brindled beast and I love her (Sorry if this sounds a bit like a line from a Beatles tune).
We are not only co-dependent but symbiotic as well!
Sometimes I wish I it was possible to bottle the way it feels when she curls up behind my knees every night.
If only I could.
Then no matter what life holds I would always feel the sweet warmth that she brings to my being.
The feeling of contentment.
The heart enlarging beauty that is pure love.
When I am sad she kisses my face.
When I am happy she sings with me.
When I am weary we rest.
Her cold wet nose, milk chocolate eyes, little black lips and sweet snaggle tooth remind me daily that I am beautiful.
But most importantly she reminds me that I am loved.
For this and her I am eternally grateful.
