Dreams Can Come True

Aren't dreams strange things? Sometimes during a dream I'm aware that I want to remember it, but when I awaken I can feel it drifting away as I try to recapture it. Some dreams hang around. I have  some recurring dreams that have been coming back for years. A couple are unpleasant and I try to wake myself from them, but one is quite pleasant. I dream of walking thru a lovely house and admiring the many rooms. Sometimes the house is deep in the woods.
Other times the house is on the beach, but it's always the same house. I find myself watching houses as we drive by, looking for that particular one. I'd recognize it immediately. Maybe that's why I enjoy the television program House Hunters. I keep hoping they'll go thru my dream house.
A dear bloggy friend of mine, Midge, lives in England. She's a  talented lady who makes lovely bears among other creations. A while ago Midge made these adorable little dolls from recycled denim and when she posted them on her blog, it reminded me of a dream I had about 30 years ago.
I dreamt that I was visiting a friend and her dog had a litter of puppies. The pups were about four weeks old and just starting to run around. I walked into her kitchen where the pups were playing in a pen. It was a littler of about ten and they were a mix of black puppies and blonde puppies except for one little pup that was denim blue in color. Of course I fell in love with that blue puppy and wanted to take him home. I woke up and remembered my dream and for all these years I've thought about that denim blue puppy.

When I saw Midge's dolls, I told her the dream and said that I really should take an old pair of jeans and make myself a denim blue puppy.
Guess what arrived on my doorstep yesterday! You guessed it, a denim blue puppy. Isn't he beautiful? And what great timing, he came on a day when I really needed some cheering. Dealing with a sick dog and lack of sleep can leave a person dragging, but this little guy has done a good job of cheering me. Don't you love his ears and paw pads?
So, don't give up, dreams can come true even after 30 years.

I was sorry to see below that Samba is not well. It is very stressful! Oh Midge makes the most adorable bears and now pups I am thinking would make a nice expansion! Love his under ear flaps.

Don't you just love Midge? Mom says she wishes one day she could visit her in her cottage. She has an image in her head of what it looks like and of course, she wants to snuggle with Freya Rose.

Lovely gift from a sweet friend.

Oh, what a nice surprise!!! It is so cute. I am so glad that you got such a special gift just when you needed it. I am so glad to hear that Samba is doin' a little better, at least it's nothin' serious with her liver. I am havin' the same problem right now. Ma is so stressed, so she knows EXACTLY how you feel. She doesn't think mine is too serious either, I turned a corner today and actually ate some stuff, and started actin' a little more normal. You might want to ask your vet if maybe giving some simethecone might help. Ma gives me one a day because my breed is prone to bloat. I'll keep my paws crossed that Samba gets better, and I'll be sendin' some AireZens, too.

Kisses,

Ruby

SHE says we don't go into the Vet's together because we might behave like porties...BOL! Actually, everything is too far off the ground for us.

An adorable blue denim puppy is just what you need with the bad week you've had with Samba. Hope you're both doing better this week.
