I just love this photo. It’s not the best quality photo in the world by any stretch, but I just love the look in Rugby’s eyes! I had been doing some study on aggression in dogs, and had my books on the bed, along with my laptop….taking notes. Rugby had been playing with a couple of his piggies, and took a break from his piggie grunting to look up at me with the most soulful eyes that expressed such deep love!!
These are the moments with him that I absolutely treasure, and these are the moments where we really connect heart to heart. No matter what naughty stuff he pulls during the day, at the end of the day, when all of the dust settles on things….Rugby James is still the little dog who has captured such a huge piece of my heart. And those eyes of his….those two little liquid pools of melted chocolate that shine and search my face for some connection…melt my heart as surely as if it were made of chocolate too!!
