Remembering my little Nappy Boy!
This is my little poodle planter after I got some flowers put in! He looks happy - yes? He's serving as a center piece on our dining table for now!
LOL - Yes, I know! Probably not suitable to some but it pleases me for now!
I didn't realize when I bought this planter/poodle yesterday (except-maybe deep down) that this little guy reminds me a lot of my little poodle , Napoleon - 'Nappy Boy,' as he became known ... Or, 'Nap-Nap,' to me!
He was all MY little dog ...so very loyal to me! He has been gone for more than 20 years now- and died at just 5 years of age. He died while we were away on a trip to TN to see the grand kids and I blamed myself for leaving him with other members of the family in Miami. He had a stroke...
I felt I shouldn't have left him... Always felt that if I had been there it wouldn't have happened. (I think the stress caused his death)
OK - For non-dog lovers I'm sure this sounds silly- especially after all these years - but I can't help it!
( and you all know me well enough by now to know I go with whatever emotions I'm feeling)
This little poodle reminds me of my 'Nap-Nap' of long ago!
