A Golden Christmas Gift

Dec.23rd 2004 was a very special day when my dear Miss Beazy Lee, our precious Golden Retriever, came to live with us. She was a surprise Christmas gift at 6 months old and given from the heart of my beloved hubby.

As the story goes, we, as a family have raised 4 Golden Retriever's. There was Bru, Buddie, Beau and now Beazy. She is the only girl we have lived with and she truly is my girly girl. The day she came into my life, she stole my heart away.

Born June 9th 2004, she came into my life at a time when our beloved Beau passed away suddenly at 11 years old. The vet believed he was just old and tired. My hubby and I were heart broken and I said, that's it, no more dogs. I can not go through this again.
However, Best Guy knew better and when he was offered a "pick of the litter Golden" from a fellow associate, he could not pass on the chance to give me a sweet puppy. While she was not meant to replace our Beau, she did give us a reason to give a home to another beautiful fur friend.

Thus the surprise on the 23rd of December. While I cooked and prepared for Christmas and the days to follow, dear hubs went off to pick her up from the vet who had given her 6 months shots, groomed and primped her all pretty, to come and meet her new momma. Remember, I did not know about this as I thought best guy was going to do something at work for a few hours. Back home he came and with him my precious 6 month old puppy. I fell in love instantly and life has not been the same since.

From the start she has loved bird and squirrel watching like in the pic below. She was only 1 years old here and her fur had not grown all out yet or feathered.

Sweet B has always watched TV too and has her favorites, like the Animal Planet and Pet Smart Commercials.

Texas is very hot in the summer months and Miss Beazy so enjoys a swim to cool off or just sit on the steps.

Just look at those pearly whites~~~ she loves to chew on a good dog bone.

A lover of walks and chasing critters. She loves being outside in the park or backyard.

Miss Beazy is now 7 years old and happy and healthy and given us more joy then we could ever imagine. I will always be thankful for the spot she has filled in our hearts and every Christmas I am reminded what a beautiful gift my Best Guy planned for me with a giving heart and much love. Thank you sweetheart.

Merry Christmas from Me and Miss Beazy Lee!

I love the story of Miss Beazy and can fully understand. When our 140lb rottie Beau died I also said "no more dogs". I was so heartbroken :( But a little Rat Terrier had different ideas. She visited my husband and I a number of times and when her owners moved and left her behind (yes they did, with another dog). Flower came back to our house and has been with us ever since.

Have a wonderful Christmas with Beazy! Maureen.

We lost our precious Belgium this summer. He was the golden love of my life. Give Beazy Lee a big hug and kiss from me. Starting to think about adopting ...

Happy Holidays

Celestina, this is my favorite Christmas post this year by far. Warms my heart because our very first four-legged lovey was a golden too. Her name was Honey, our golden girl. ;) She came into our lives as a bottom-swayin' pup in the year 2000. Sadly, we said goodbye a bit too soon last year and our hearts were marked forever. She was darling and very loved by us and our children, now young adults. At the time we said goodbye, we still had two other little ones (not golden), but sadly we lost our Boon (full-sized Yorkie) tragically this Sept. We're down to one very lucky chihuahua mix who goes by the name of Gibson, which our son brought home years ago after finding him in an abandoned lot. But I have to tell you, my husband and I still dream of one day bringing another golden girl into this home. They are such precious friends.
Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, and a big hug to darling Miss Beazy.

Dearest Celestina Marie,

What a lovely story about Miss Beazy and how perfect a gift for that December 23rd of 2004.
She is a little younger as our cat Barty who came to us at the time Miss B was born. They are such a joy and I love especially the picture of the two of you where you did squatt down to her. A true companion and funny that some animals do watch movies. Our beloved Spooky loved to watch the Animal Planet. We always had to leave that chanel on when we went away for a short time... Smart pets.
Thanks for your friendship and lovely comments from the heart! Have a blessed Christmas together as a family and keep adding those special Memories...

Merry Christmas Celestina to you and your family including Miss Beazy. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Your Missouri Friend.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful story. Sometimes our Hubby's do know just what we need. Beazy is adorable or Stella (she is a Yellow lab) and Dolce (he is a Yorkie) would so enjoy playing with Beazy.

Furbabies really are a blessing in our lives! xo HHL

Aaawww, I love Miss B :)
I wish you would add her to your posts more often, but you know I am a huge dog lover!LOL

Give her lots of kisses and hugs from me. She looks like such a huggable dog!

Both of my dogs came to me just before Christmas. When #1 Sweetie passed after nearly 15 and a half years with me I said, I couldn't go through that again. It took a while, but now Lucy is here almost three years.
