P is for Puppies

I pick the puppy up. Its super soft, jet black fur brushes against my face. It is as light as a feather so small that it seems like one little gust of wind could knock it over. I have never held anything so precious. That's what it is at one day old, a little bundle of fluff and very precious.

Three weeks ago my dog had puppies! Well actually, three weeks ago my dog had six little bundles of fluff that are the cutest things ever. When you pick them up you just can't help but smile! They do the most hilarious things ever! Like when they first start to walk they stumble around everywhere, taking in their surroundings because everything is so new to them.

It is so amazing to watch them grow up... I know I know I sound like your mother probably does on your birthday, but it's true you watch them go from little fluff balls that can't see, hear or walk to puppies that can run around and bark and play. However there is more to them then just their cute black fuzz. Each of them have their own personalities. Whether they are quiet or loud or adventurous or just want to be held.

Have you ever met anyone who doesn't like puppies? Most people would say no to this question. However why does everyone love puppies so much? It can't just be how absolutely adorable they are. There has to be more to it than that. Maybe its because they just make you smile. Maybe its just the fact that they are such little creatures in a such a big wide world, so unaware of their surrounding so completely wrapped up in their own little lives that you just can't help but fall in love with them! Why do you love puppies so much?

I gently put the puppy down. It crawls over to its brothers and sisters. It curls up into a tiny ball next to the others. Now they look like a giant bundle of jet black fluff, huddling together for warmth and comfort. As I look at them I wonder what is going on in their own little worlds knowing that whatever it is it is happy. And staring at them I can't help but smile.
