My Little Genie
Genie....my little angel
I lost my Dad at the end of May of 2007. To help my Mom have someone else to love and care for I decided to find her a Maltese puppy.
I was advised by my daughter that they were wonderful, loving puppies as a couple of her friends had them. When I found a local breeder I told my Mom on Father's Day that we were going to a "new" store and took her to see the puppies so I could buy her one.
Little did I know that I too would end up with my own Maltese puppy. I just couldn't resist Genie when she crawled right up on my lap and didn't move the whole time we were there.
I named mine Genie for my Dad, whose middle name was Eugene. My Mom named hers Bonbon for my sister Bonnie who had also passed away less than two years earlier.
Genie and Bonbon have brought me and my Mom so much fun and love. We still feel our loss, but our puppies have made it so much easier to keep on living and smiling. We get the two sisters together several times a week for play dates and sleepovers. They are such a wonderful addition to our lives.
Genie goes to work with me four days a week and warns every one when a new customer is in the office by barking quite loudly for a little 5 lb. puppy! The office staff love her and she makes them laugh too. My little Genie makes the world a happier place. :D
