..."the sultry part of the summer, supposed to occur during the period that Sirius, the Dog Star, rises at the same time as the sun: now often reckoned from July 3 to August 11." (Dictionary.com)
In honor of Sirius, I thought I would share a picture my son took a couple of days ago of my two faithful companions.
Dolly, on the right, is a Cockapoo that I adopted from the Rome Humane Society in 2008. According to papers I received at the adoption she is now 15+ years old; however, she has the spunk and playfulness of a puppy. She is my shadow.
Gracie, on the left, is a Pomeranian that I adopted from the Stevens-Swan Humane Society in 2014. She is now about seven years old. Gracie is a love bug; she is always looking to be scratched for hours on end.
Dog lovers will understand when I say that my furbabies are my joy! Please consider adopting a pet; there are so many looking for a loving home!
