The Story of Me hosted by MinnaK.
As we have told our adoption stories here, we thought we would tell you WHY mom adopted us.
When mom was a teenager, her friend had a miniature black & tan LH dachshund, who looked very much like Frankie, named Killer. This pup would follow mom around whenever she visited her friend or would snuggle up with her as soon as she sat down. Killer was sweet, adorable, goofy and Oh so loveable. Mom decided that when it was her turn to have a dog of her own it would be a miniature LH dachshund. That is WHY mom adopted me, Ruby when it was time for her to get a dachshund of her very own.
As mom is a full time worker, I, Ruby was by myself during the day. Mom would come home for lunch (she still does) for an hour, but she thought that I was lonely. In 2008 mom started looking for a companion dachshund for me and herself. When she saw the picture of Penny on the internet it was love at first site, so that is WHY mom adopted Penny.
Shopping for Pressies hosted by Frankie.
As we do not have any green papers of our own, or the means to get to the stores, we are making some homemade pressies.
Mom, Mom L & Dad B are all getting a jar of our soon-to-be famous bottled air kisses.
Happy Thanksgiving to all that are celebrating today. We want to share a poem with you.
Be thankful that you don't already have
everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge
because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.
It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.
Love Ruby & Penny
