I am joining in with Melody at The House on the Side of the Hill for Tuesday Treasures today. My treasures are my...alright, our...beautiful puppy dogs, Jasmine and Leo.
They are Maltese Shitzus and they are just over 3 years old. I have had dogs most of my life and I just love the fact that they always give you unconditional love. Jas and Leo are just so excited to see us first thing in the morning or when we arrive home after having been out somewhere. It's nice to feel so loved!
Mind you, Jas is actually more like a cat 70% of the time. The relationship is all on her terms, she will only come to you or follow instructions when she wants to (and even then it's often reluctantly), and she sulks when she doesn't get what she wants. She is so cute though and it is absolutely worth putting up with this behaviour when she finally decides that she is going to curl up on your lap and keep you warm while you stitch. She loves, loves, loves chasing the ball at the park too.
Leo, on the other hand, can't wait to be your closest best friend and gets very jealous if Jas gets more attention than he does. This is his favourite toy and when we go to the park he just carries it around all the time, squeaking it. He often sits in my lap or close to my legs while I am stitching and is a great companion.
Hope you all have a great week.
