Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought
by Mary May Larmoyeux
Our old Basset Hound died a couple of days ago and we are really going to miss her! She's been a faithful friend to everyone in the family. Shortly after Sammie died, a daughter-in-law texted me that the grandkids were sobbing after she told them the sad news.
Today, I want to thank God for giving us Sammie for so many years! In honor of her, here are some memorable quotes about what many call man's best friend:How can Pops and I help our grandkids in the loss of our loyal family pet?
- “Happiness is a warm puppy.” (Charles M. Schulz)
- “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than
he loves himself.” (Josh Billings)
- “A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.” (John Grogan, Marley and Me)
