Tupelo, My Guardian Angel : A Retrospective

I know this is completely off topic, but .... Tupelo is my dog. 


You can take all the tea in China
Put it in a big brown bag for me
Sail right around the seven oceans
Drop it straight into the deep blue sea
She's as sweet as tupelo honey
She's an angel of the first degree
She's as sweet as tupelo honey
Just like honey from the bee 

- Tupelo Honey by Van Morrison


It's also cool that it's the name of Elvis Presley's birthplace.  She is a rescue dog and was the runt of her litter of unknown origin.  She came at a disruptive time, so I call her my guardian angel because she is the love I didn't know I was missing.

This is her at 8 weeks old, when we adopted her.

Such a sweet baby! My dog is my heart and soul as well :)

Your post caught my eye, because even though I am a native NY'er, I have lived in Tupelo, MS for 13 years. It always cracks me up that people can't pronounce it. They always say tu-PELL-o. I am like, have you never listened to Van Morrison?
