A Girl's Best Friend
This is perhaps the first post with a picture that is not of Justice. I have mentioned before that I have a doggie named Joy, but have yet to display her cuteness on my site or talk about her more than briefly. We took this photo for our pet jewelry in our special/other section on our website http://www.emilyrosejewellery.com. I got to thinking about this post after reading the post on my friend Ashley's site (http://labellavista06.blogspot.com/), about her cats. So, I felt is was just about time to talk about my princess.
Joy is a little white miniature that Ron and I were blessed with by my mother. My mom and I got her the day after Christmas in 2001. A colleague of my mother's asked my mom if she wanted a her since she had gotten Joy for her daugter and required that her daughter take care of her, but her daughter was no longer fulfilling her duties. My mom brought her home and I thought she was crazy since we already had two cats. But, I grew to love this little fluff ball. When my mother got remarried and moved to a farm we decided that Joy would do better with Ron and I since she is more of a city dog. So, we took her in and spoiled the crud out of this dog. Before we got her she was content to lay beside us in her own bed. Now, thanks mainly to my husband, she is pampered to no end. She never lays down except for on a blanket, preferably with a pillow. She is well groomed, usually (well since Justice came she has not been as coutured).
She has a lot of personality. She is a priss. As you can see in this photo, she knows how to pose for the camera. She is really afraid of flies! A couple of months ago a fly buzzed her on our bed at night and now she won't stay on the bed unless Ron is on it. She is also a daddy's girl, following him around and becoming very distressed when he goes outside to cut the grass. She is a very sweet dog and has done great with Justice. She is a sweetheart. She is also very smart. We did not have to tell her not to play with Justice's toys, she just knows which are hers and which are his. For a little while she was jealous of the attention Justice was getting and moaned and jumped at us for affection. But, she has calmed down a lot and is very at ease with life today. She still tries to get in between Justice and us and I don't think that will change anytime soon. Well, that is our dog, she is a fun, fun pet and we en"Joy" her daily!
