This photo is one of my very favorites of Rugby because I was able to capture his expressive eyes so very well. This is who he really is. These are the very same eyes that stared at me through my computer screen 7 years ago and made me fall in love with a little speckled puppy. This little face is what keeps me trying new things to improve the quality of his life day after day. These eyes often carefully and softly consider me at night during snuggles, when it’s quiet and just he and I cuddling. How could I ever give up on this little hot mess of speckled fur? I’ve been blessed to share my life with amazing and wonderful dogs, but Rugby James is the little dog who has changed my world….and as a result, he has changed me.
