48 Years - I Love That He Loves His Dog!

When you have been together this many years, much of your anniversary and the days leading up to it might be spent thinking about things that have happened in the past.  I am reminded how jealous my MIL was of the dogs my FIL loved over the years.  So much so that she actually over the years took two of them to the the Humane Society while he was at work.

I took this picture of Terry with his little dog Harley.  It brings me a lot of joy to see it.  A big man with a heart like a marshmallow...just like his father..who loves his dog and calls him Honey.  It melts my heart. I am happy to know that he has the same kind of love for Harley that I have know for several of the dog friends we have had.

We have two other dogs that he also loves and treats with affection.

Happy Anniversary Terry.  I love you more every day.

Happy Anniversary to you both! The big 50 isn’t far off now!
It took me longer to learn how much my Terry would loves a dog. We bot resisted getting one because we have two kitties, but I gave in recently and am so amazed at the relationship between Terry and Seamus. It’s beautiful, especially with an animal rescued from a certain unhappy life. I’m grateful that I realized the value of this adoption for both before it was too late for it to comfortably happen. Unlike you though, Carol, we will not have more than one. :)

How wonderful! We just passed our 10th anniversary together and its so strange that it has been that long. It really feels like only a year or two, maybe three? It can't have been ten! I love and appreciate Adam more and more each day. We fit so well, we are like hand in glove. It seems like you feel that way too.
Heartwarming to see Terry with "his" dog or is it the other way round?

Happy Anniversary! I think I would have told my wife that the next dog that disappears means she is going to go too! Wow. Dogs are the best; people, not so much!

Well I can see you really picked a winner with Terry. Men that love dogs are extra special. (I just think that his white facial hair in that crazy style is adorable too.) Happy Anniversary. Each one is special. There is nothing like being with someone for a very long time, knowing they love you and you get to love them back. Many blessings for many more years.

Suddenly that country song by The Desert Rose Band comes to mind; Oh What a Love.
Happy Anniversary!!!

Happy Anniversary!!!!! You can tell when a man loves their dogs, they do have a gentle soul! You are all lucky to have each other....

Super photo, and that's a great love. How could a person be jealous of that? I hope it's been the best anniversary ever and the coming year will be even better than the last 48.

I really like your Endeavor art quilt piece.
This is a great photo...as fellow dog lovers we relate well. Tony can't mention Lacie, the Dalmatian without tearing up and she's been gone years now.
Celebrate the anniversary!!

oh such a sweet post! Happy Anniversary! 48 years? .....well congratulations as well!
I have never understood spouses who are jealous of the other spouse's pets.......but I have known a few friends who have been in this kind of situation.
