I've Been Thinking....

{Written in an e-mail to my dear friend, Stephanie!!}

Now that I am creating monthly fictional children's stories? My life truly has a sense of purpose!! At last.... I have been waiting for a long time to feel this way.... And all I had to do was take control of my thoughts/feelings/emotions/life....

I've been thinking.... That I should have become a children's writer years ago.... Doing so might have helped keep minor mood swing-infused pity parties at bay.... And I look back upon that part of my existence--which is not, by any means, completely conquered--with deep regret.... But then I am reminded of this very quotation by Robert Downey Jr..... And suddenly, I feel okay.... With right now.

I think you end up doing the stuff you were supposed to do at the time you were supposed to do it. --Robert Downey Jr.

"That is very true Raelyn, life is too short for regrets.". Yes. And RDJ actually does a very good job--I think--at not dwelling too much on regret. ;op

Found your blog when searching 'german shepherd/beagle mix puppies'.We had one when we were kids. The dad (shepherd) and the mom (beagle) were owned by the same people. Our dog, Fang, looked very similar to your Rose, except darker shepherd coloring, slightly longer ears. Taller than a beagle, more slender legs, thicker fur. And SMART, with a sense of humor (!) and also saved his bark for 'important' times.God, I still miss him! Wish I was better with the computer so I could send you a pic or two. Rose and Fang could be related!

Thank-you for the comment, Friend!!
Rose is a Mystery Dog, meaning I have no idea what breeds are mixed within her DNA!! However. I have received several comments from Readers who own Beagle/German Shepherd crosses and claim that their canines "look just like her"!! So everybody--friends, neighbors, Internet surfers--have considered Rose a Beagle/German Shepherd!! ;)
Please accept my most heartfelt sympathies for the loss of Fang. You never "get over" losing a furry friend.... ;op
