This is Rose lying on my bed and "her" home-made Boston Red Sox pillow. When I was interested in baseball, which "retired" so to speak alongside pitcher Curt Schilling. Moving on.... Rose seldom ever "smiles" with her mouth, unlike Shadow used to. No. Rose "smiles" with her "happy" tail!! Now, for a weird fact. Because I am an oddball who observes strange things!! Rose will oft "smile" like this--self-satisfied--after licking her butt!! That is what she was doing. "Smiling" after licking her butt. I have a weird dog!! I like to lovingly call Rose "butt breath" during these moments!! Weird. Huh. It takes one to know one, I guess!!

This is a first picture of Rose. Just look at those colossal brown "Beagle" eyes that I love so much!! They still seemed very sad and insecure. As though her eyes alone questioned: Are you my Mama? Is this where I will spend forever? Am I going to feel happy here....?

2. Enjoying the winter or ready for spring? Spring is my very favorite season!! I love the warmer weather, blossoming flowers, singing birds, rainbows, hailstorms, thunder/lightning.... I oft suffer from headaches and/or minor asthma attacks during Spring, which has only occurred recently. Nonetheless. I still love that season!!
3. Are you an introvert or extrovert? Is your spouse the same as you? Interesting question. Firstly, I am not married. I don't have a boyfriend, either!! I am an extrovert. After all, here have been some deeply personal life details which I've shared on Beautifully Unique!! However. I crawl into an imaginary turtle shell during most social gatherings!! Because I'm so weird, I guess. So, I suppose this qualifies me as being both? I am a mutt!!
4. Would you rather go without music or television for 1 year? Hmmm. Music--especially anything with rhythm--is somehow therapeutic to me!! But, then again, I have never really been much of a television watching person. So. I do not have an answer to this query!!
5. Have you ever been truly scared of someone? Yes. Well, he made me feel uncomfortable, anyway!! Does that count? Several years ago, my youngest brother and I used to play "baseball" on our neighborhood Elementary School's field. We met and befriended several diverse people. Including a rough-around-the-edges neighbor. My "watch-out-this-dude-is-dangerous" intuition tingled, like Spidey Senses. He was often seen--and heard!!--running across the street after his canine, shouting expletives. My intuition, I would later learn, was wrong. Very, very, very wrong. One afternoon, we talked. Well, he talked. I had no idea what this guy had lived through!! His only daughter--who I'd already met--had Cerebral Palsy. Beautiful girl. Phaedra has truly impacted my life!! This guy talked--with the F-bomb spoken literally every other word--opening up to me, as though I were some licensed therapist. And I listened. As a sheltered Home-schooled then-21-year old, I had never heard the F-bomb spoken so freely before. But, I looked past that. Because this guy desperately needed a therapy session. Afterward, we were friends!!
