Happy Birthday Honey Puppy!!
We Love You!
Today is Honey Puppy's 10th Birthday! She is just the sweetest dog and we have just adored having her in our lives.
Hubby and I got Honey on February 28th, 1999. She was the tiniest little baby. The baby pictures were all pre-digital camera so we only have computer photos from the last few years...with one special exception!
This picture was taken in July 1999 while we were visiting Cannon Beach, Oregon.
Honey is a corgi pomeranian mix. She has the pomeranian's little skinny legs and tiny feet. She has a smaller corgi face and her ears are just the cutest ever. Her ears have little tufts of fur that stick up. A groomer put little tiny bows on those little tufts once, it was so adorable! and it lasted about two minutes. She has the big barrel chest of the corgi and the narrow waist of the pomeranian...she is a funny little mix.
I have a special connection with Honey. She is my doggie, and I really love her. We have a bond. She is a crabby old lady these days and I can totally empathize with her aches and pains of getting older. We got Honey to keep me company when Hubby had to work nights. We had two big dogs that were outside, but I wanted a puppy to cuddle. She was less than two pounds when we brought her home. We named her Honey because she had the prettiest honey colored coat. She was so tiny that hubby could tuck her into his shirt pocket. She would run so fast and just tip over because her head and chest were heavier than her bottom half.
She is a great travel companion. She has been on many road trips and stayed in many hotel rooms. She has gone camping and fishing. She is a wonderful friend.
I love her so much. Happy Birthday, my little princess!!!
