I’m definitely going to show this to my friend, Tricia, who has a pit bull-mix rescue sweetie named, “Bella.”

As for my Darla Louise, affectionately known at “DarlaDog” in social media circles, her name didn’t make the list. We do have another “Darla” in the neighborhood, who came to her family with her name already attached.


Our other neighborhood, “Darla.” Can one ‘hood really have this much beauty? Truly, it can.

And my friend, Corny, has a precious Darla who looks like she could be first cousins with my dog. They’re even about the same age, sporting their 15+ years with grace.

  • Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this
    blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user
    friendliness and appearance. I must say you’ve done a amazing job with
    this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera.
    Outstanding Blog!

    Thanks so much. Your words mean a lot. I actually did it myself instead of forking out a bunch of cash. The creator of the theme was very helpful and responsive and when I emailed him questions and trust me there were some silly ones, as I’m kind of new to WordPress. The theme is called, “Rubine Pro,” if you’re interested in geeky, behind the scenes info like that. Please come back and visit often. I update every day. –Daryn.
