people, let me tell you 'bout my best friend

meet my best friend, pablo.


last week, pablo and i started a club. the best friends club.

it's very exclusive, as we are the only members. we made an exception and designated robert and mama as honorary members. however, they do not get to participate in the special club ritual, homemade shirts.






because at the end of the day, what brings you comfort and friendship is personal and unique and altogether special. and whether i find it in the throngs of a great vintage store or hanging on the couch with my husband or nestling my face into a belly of fur is up to me. and it can be all three. but more times than not, i find myself talking to, playing with and listening to pablo. because no one gives me a sweeter greeting when i get home, and no one knows the exact crook of my knees and taste of my cheek quite like he does.

and i'll be forever grateful that even though children are far away on our horizon, and i'm not quite ready to be a mama for real, this bouncy, cuddly seven-year-old mess has allowed me to practice on him. and he'll always be my baby, and quite possibly, my best friend.

That's wonderful. I had a four legged best friend named Jake for 13 years - he died last year. I still miss him every single day. He went everywhere with me, often when we went to a dinner or party at a friend's house, they would ask "is Jake in the car", answer was always yes. I was never without him. I completely understand your relationship.

I have been wanting a four legged baby for quite sometime. I can't wait until after grad school when I get my own place and have enough money to get one. You two are the cutest!

Sarah said...

So sweet! It's amazing, the ability they have to totally steal your heart:)

Such a cutie! I love this post. My husband and I have been wanting our own dog for a couple years now, and I feel like it's finally time to take the plunge.

Awwww...you two are so cute :) If you don't have one already...you definitely need to establish a secret paw/hand shake :) Hubs and I are not fur-parents (yet) but have been seriously considering adopting a greyhound in the next few months!

This is adorable!! I LOVE the shirts, they are so great! I am always talking to my dogs and telling them they are my best friends and I love : ' and no one knows the exact crook of my knees ' isn't that the truth?! They just know. ;) And they always just know when your day is a bit off beat, and bit frustrating, and a bit harder than normal and you just need a little smile!

I love this!!! I may have to start a "Best Friends Club" with my little Darcy. Your blog is wonderful! Someone recommended it to me a few weeks ago, and it is beautiful. :)

Amber Blue Bird said...

i feel the same way about my puppy, he is like my little baby and i could not love him more. having a little furry baby to listen to my problems and give me kisses on my cheek is the best thing a girl could ask for

courtney, this made me laugh and cry! but you always do that to me. :) i have two little babies and best friends, too. i gave them a bath today. i sang to them the whole time. my favorite part is drying them... wrapping them in their own towels and seeing their little faces peak out. you guys are adorable!

Shalyn said...

You are so adorable- love the shirts! Pablo is such a cutie!

angie on maui said...

YEAH! Pablo is rockin' his custom tee! What sweet photos - I'm totally smiling over here looking at his furry little face!

While I'd love a pup, our kitty rules the house. The Queen hath spoken and expanding our family of the fury kind is out of the question. ;)
