Day 3 - Grateful for Halley in Sandpoint Idaho

I would be remiss were I not to mention how fortunate I have been with my 4 legged newfie buddies.  Before Halley, there were Bilbo and then Grizzly.  Both incredibly perfect for where I was at personally at that moment in my life.  I could tell stories of both for days.   

Halley continues to amaze me.  She wins me over more and more daily.  As we know unconditional love is what our four legged buddies are best known for. But Halley has given me so much more beyond that.  She has taught me a patience that I never thought possible of myself.  It is directly as a result of her.

Even more wonderful is how she bends over backwards to please me.  Not to mess up what she knows is expected of her by me.  And yet she does this while also keeping her own independence.  An admirable trait of which I am in awe of how well she walks that line.  Something I now strive to improve on in myself as well.

I am truly grateful for Halley and her antics along with her love.  From her sending me to the chriorpractor after having spotted a cat (before me) while walking, doing her happy dance when wanting out, pacing like a hamster in the back of my car, running and showing off when pleased to see me all within just 6 inches of running out of rope, insisting on laying in walking paths of the home so I am in constant danger of tripping over an unseen black mass, the sheer joy of going with me every morning as if she has been left behind the previous month, seeing the joy she gives people when they ask to pet her, getting me out for walks with her, and so much more I could get stuck typing here all night.  

For the company of Miss Halley I am truly grateful.  Such a Loving Brute

Good evening Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint , I can identify with your relationship with Halley.  We just lost our best friend and family member of 16+ years in July.  "Wolfie" had his own personality and like you said, they go out of their way to please you and have that unconditional love.

I really love that last picture of her. Look at the look in her eyes. She must be looking at you.

Hi Mark Don - If I wasn't a Lab guy, Newfies would be my choice. He's a beautiful animal and I'm sure he's a great best friend. Thanks for all your contest entries!
