31 Days, 31 Reasons to be Thankful: January 11: The Little Dog

Diva and I on her 10th birthday
For those of you who know me, you know that I love my dog. I have a 10 year old Boston Terrier named Diva, and she is the center of my world.
Diva in her younger years
Diva was born on December 14, 2002, and she was the runt of her litter. Several weeks later, on February 4, 2003, I brought my little Diva home (all 11 ounces of her). She was so tiny that she slept in the toes of my sneakers. With 2 roommates, it was actually a little bit difficult to keep track of her!
Diva needs her rest
Over the years, Diva and I have grown to have a good working relationship. I pay the bills, she runs the house. She has traveled with me, moved with me, snuggled with me...she's been my partner through thick and thin.
She prefers not to be disturbed
Diva's antics have become somewhat of a popular topic; she recently "starred" in a series titled, "Where's the Little Dog?". Over the years, there have been many times where I had to really stop and search for Diva, as she has the tendency to burrow and hide. Here are a few of my favorites; see if you can answer the question, "where's the little dog?"
Where's the little dog?
She's in the picture...where's the little dog?
Hiding out...where's the little dog?
A personal favorite...
So, today I hope that you have someone or something to bring you as much joy as my "little dog" has!

  1. Oh she is too cute! Love all the photos of her hiding!!! I have a small dog too, but at 15, she is definitely past the playing glad to have found your blog fromKnick of Time!

    1. Thanks Maureen! I would have thought that Diva would be calmer at 10...turns out the only thing that gives away her age is her gray. I'm so glad you found my blog also; thanks for reading!

  2. What a doll Diva is! I've wanted to get a small dog like her and was thinking of Diva as a name too! Guess taht great minds think alike LOL! I love all of her hiding places - what a riot she is!
