Virginia!

I was in Virginia for first two weeks, visiting my friends. I had a good time and it went by too fast for me, even though I didn't go anywhere except to the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Center in Virginia Beach. I really didnt want to go back home,lol. They have 3 dogs and 2 cats and may be adding 2 more cats when their son comes to live with them. The cat, above, is Sammy. I love this cat, and if I could have her live with me, I would in a heartbeat. She lets me rub her tummy, which is rare for a cat. In this picture, she is on top of my luggage on my last day there. I was packing and she jumped in and curled up. Do you think she wants to go home with me? The other cat, Piper, I was lucky if I saw her every other day. She stays upstairs in her master's computer room. I think she only came downstairs to use the litterbox or to eat. I didnt get any pictures of her on this trip.

This is Zoey, and she remembered me when I saw her in Texas. I knew she would remember me, I am not unforgettable, lol. The first 15 minutes or so, she just wanted me to pet her. She is the princess of the 3 dogs and sometimes acts it too. One morning, really early, I had got up to use the bathroom and I came back and fluff the pillows. Zoey,in return, jumped in the middle of the pillows, curled up and went to sleep, claiming the pillows were hers now. It was cute. In this picture, the bottom of her mouth is pinkish, as you may notice. I fed her some of my watermelon Italian ice and she just gobble it down. Her mommy didnt notice when she got home from work so we will keep it a secret between us!
The new dogs are cocker spaniel and this one is named Ryleigh. She is a barker but very beautiful. When my friends were at work, she would be by my side and follow me everywhere. I was prepping some potatoes for supper, and Ryleigh decided to lay down behind me. I didnt realize she was there and when I moved to put the pot on the stove, I stepped on the poor dog. She yelped but forgave me right away. Dogs are great that way.

This one is called Ginger or sometimes Gingy. She is very sweet and loves to get attention. She would wake me up in the morning to get some loving and would try to lay down on my chest. She must think she is a Shih Tzu, like Zoey, lol. She did this most adorable thing as I was leaving. Genia said it was time to say goodbye to Vicky. Ginger came immediately to me and lick my cheek, her kiss good-bye. It was so sweet.

It is getting late and I am getting tired. I have taken pictures when I was at the Virginia Aquarium and you can see them here with a few more pictures of the pets. I have been thinking of getting a dog soon, but not sure yet. I am doing research and looking at animal shelters. I really want some companionship, and I think a dog will do me some good. Maybe I can convince my friends to breed Zoey, than I will have 50% chance of getting her sweet temperment.

My next post will be a couple finishes I did in Virginia.
Many stitches to all of you,
Vicky

It looks like you had a really good visit with your friends. I will definitely side with a doggie for a pet. We have a beautiful little girl named Bella who is a ShiZhu & Pug mix and she's just perfect for our little house (even with 3 big boys mixed in). Very sweet tempered, although a bit barky when she suspects someone is crossing on to her territory, and she loves to snuggle! Good luck with your decision.

Sounds like you had a wonderful getaway. I surely would have packed one of those lovable furbabies some where and brought it home with me!!

Love and Hugs!!

Vicky, I'm glad you had such a nice trip, and I enjoyed looking at their furbabies. I think you definitely need a dog or kitty for company. The nice thing about them is that they love unconditionally and are soooo loyal!
