    This tiny little precious fur ball. God Love them all. Thank God we have animals in our world. They are precious gems to the human race. They deserve all the love we give them, because they give us double love. I personally don't know what I would do if I didn't have my Mitzi. She brings me such joy and I had many dogs in the past, and they ALL have given back so much to me. But as you get older, your pets will give you double love and you learn to be grateful for that. The only sad thing is that their lives are too short. 🐕🐱🙏😢🥰

    He doesn't have a bad side!

    Absolutely precious!

    So adorable!❤️
