Love is a many splendored thing….

“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.”

–Morrie Schwartz


Well, it’s happened.  We knew it was only a matter of time.  The Beaumeister is in love.  That’s right, our little man has a girlfriend.  Her name is Gracie, and she is a cutie.  8 months old to Beau’s 17 months, full of spunk and able to give our boy a run for his money. Indeed, judging from Beau’s adoring gaze, her 100-yard dash not only won his heart, it is infinitely more impressive than mine. 🙂

    I am mystified! I thought I was following your blog but just checked and had to press follow again!

    • Glad to have you back, Julie, though I must confess I’ve been a real reprobate in terms of posting. Haven’t done anything new in months and months. Need to get back at it. Work keeps getting in the way… 😦

    I wanted to give out love for this post. Thank you.

  5. What is the novelty of the snow that makes them frolic so?


  6. They are adorable…a new follower☺

  7. Your photos capture true joy. What a wonderful way to begin Valentine’s Day!

    Aw Lori….sooooo cute! Good action photography!

  10. OMG. Let the romance bloom. Love the shots!

    • They are fun, aren’t they? Though if you’ll look closely, the Beau man has the tennis ball firmly gripped in his jaws in every instance. We’re still refining his ‘deferring to the lovely lady’ and ‘sharing’ skills….. 😉

  11. Aahh… so you will have to be satisfied with second place now?

    So men love chocolate too?? What wonderful taste he has! I have to agree with the above comment however, just like we all know, a girlfriend is amazing but mom is where love began. I really want you to visit the coast this year! ALL of you!

    • Yep, he’s decided chocolate is his sweet of choice. ;-). And Gracie is such a little honey that I can’t say I blame him. As for visiting the coast this year, we’d love it! Let’s make it happen…. 🙂

    Frollicking dogs….pure lover.
    What is that white stuff?

    • Is there a more joyous sight?! As for the white stuff, it’s the remnants of a past storm. At -2 degrees today and an even lower wind chill factor, we’re not slated to get any “fresh powder” for a few days. Nevertheless, the “lovebirds” make do… 😉

    You know I love the dogs and the photos so cool.

    But I also am drawn to the quote. Once again, our hounds have something to teach us. I know that I lived a lot of my life moving away from others when it felt too real. But to be open, ready to make yourself vulnerable, to accept love is such a great thing. It should be a natural thing but us humans often seem to go astray- not like our buddies on four legs.

    Thanks for the post.


    • You’re right, Tom, opening oneself to love can be very, very scary, for the closer you allow someone to get, the better they know you, the more they can hurt you. But sharing real love with another is so fulfilling that I believe it’s worth the risk. I wish that joy and reward for you….

    That must be what they mean, when they call it Puppy Love! Ahh…I.just.couldn’t.resist!! Adorable..and so glad that we do not, as humans, have to endure endurance sports in the snow when we find ourselves with a crush on someone! xo

  16. Awww, thx Mimi! 😉 xoxo

    He may be in love, but you’re always going to be his first love. Because the Beaumeister – as we all know – has EXCELLENT taste..xoxo
