Furry Friend Linky :)

I'm linking up with Sandy @ Soaring Through Second for what is probably one of my most favorite linkies ever!  So excited because I get to blog about my very best pal and companion Bernice!

My parents gave me Bernice as a birthday present on April 12 two years ago.  (my birthday is April 19) It was the best surprise ever!  I named her after my favorite Miranda Lambert song White Liar!  My life has never been the same.  I moved that year to a very small town (where I teach) by myself and you wouldn't believe how much company this little dog has given me.  I take her everywhere with me (which probably explains her separation anxiety issues).  Bernice has probably taught me that companionship doesn't always just come in two legs it can come in 4.  I never believed that this animal would become so important to me.  She is more like my dogchild than a pet.  I probably post as many pictures of her as people do of their children!  Thanks Sandy for having this Linky!

My favorite pics of her involve her lips getting caught on her teeth.


  1. Awwww!!! I LOVE Bernice! I think it is awesome when animals have people names! I am running off to post about my own furry friends. I am so excited about this linky party!

  8. Hi! I'm your newest follower. Your job sounds like my first one- I was the only 1st grade teacher at my very small school.I loved the people I worked with and the small school setting. I'm so glad you linked up. Bernice is adorable!
