World Peace

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Puppy
I have found the key to world peace.  It's really quite simple.  I can sum it up in one word.....


Yes.  It's really that simple.  If everyone had a puppy (or a kitten!) of their own to love and snuggle and kiss and squeeze I think the world would be a much happier place.  Puppies have a kind of magic about them that can't be described.  It's just not possible to be upset when you're looking at this.....

My little Baxter Boo Boo, Nugget, Snuggly Nuggs, Pudding Pup continues to be full of sweetness, curiosity, innocence and pure joy. 

He's growing up soooo fast.  His paws are huge.  His legs are long.  He's actually doubled in size in the two months he's been in our family!  His sweet and soft Cavalier "fluff" is starting to come in. And he is now able to jump up onto the sofa or the bed effortlessly!  This is an accomplishment that fills my heart with both pride and fear.....just think of all the new trouble he can get into now when I'm not looking!

His days are full of chasing butterflies and splashing in puddles and napping in the sunshine...

I think he dreams of rainbows and unicorns and gumdrops and candy canes and seas of lollipops.

And ohhhh....the look on his face when he's about to get a's almost too much to take!  It's a mixture of joy and anticipation and wonder and amazement that something so magical is about to happen!

There's so much to learn from this little guy.  Take delight in simple pleasures.  Nap when you're tired.  If you're happy about something, don't hold back.  Never postpone joy.  Greet people with enthusiasm.  Live life to the fullest and enjoy every second of it!  Be so awesome that the world is a better place just because you're in it!

Hugs from me and puppy kisses from Baxter,

I think you have really GOT It THIS time!! This has to be the way out of all problems and towards all happiness and peace!!!

And Baxter will be the leader of the gang of puppies descending on all capitols to melt every heart. Opps - well, maybe not Baxter - he better stay home with you and Emma and everyone.

Just wondering, with all the nicknames you give each and every one of your kids, do they really know their own names?????

You are a lucky, lucky gal. I want a tricolor Cavalier sooooo bad.

You're so right, then the puppies grow into dogs that have their own wonderful peacefulness.

You are so right - everyone needs a puppy of their own to love - and to be loved by. (Just ask my husband who "didn't want a dog" - LOL!) I never tire of seeing Baxter pictures.
