Last summer my older dog passed away. It was heartbreaking to say goodbye. But as hard as it was for me it was even harder for my other fur-baby. She had never been a solo dog before. It has been a tough year for her. On top of the loss of her fur-sister, we brought home a new baby that has taken much of my time. Yet Pippin is still my beacon of love.
Pippin is always happy to see us. She greets us (when she hears us coming). She is always willing to give us kisses and unload treats that may be weighing down our pockets. Pippin is a great dog and fur-baby. So I would like to wish my sweet Pippin a very happy birthday!
I'm grateful for our thirteen years together and I hope we have several more to celebrate. I'm grateful for all the times Pippin has been there for me as my life spins. I'm grateful for what a good big sister she is to my daughters. I'm grateful for all the laughs she has given me. I'm grateful to have had the honor of bringing her home from the shelter all those years ago. I'm grateful for another year ahead to celebrate.
Have you had a pet that was family? Did you do anything special for your pet's birthday?
May today remind us to celebrate the pure love our pets give us and each day we get to spend with them. Have a beautiful day!
