Happy Birthday Dakota!! Our “Perfect 10”

Oh, this is a rough one. A terribly rough one. Where have the years gone? It seems like yesterday that my precious Sheltie boy was 8 months old. Now, today, he turns 10. TEN…so hard to believe, even harder for me to process.

We would like to thank Pipo, Minko and Mr.Jack Freckles thoughtful Mama for this incredible card that she made for Dakota. Click on the photo to visit their blog

When thinking about what I was going to do to acknowledge Dakota’s momentous birthday on his blog,  I kept becoming more and more sad.

I don’t want to be sad and I don’t want to make any of YOU sad, so I am going to do my best to keep this post light-hearted!

10 Things I Love About Our Perfect 10

  • You are my favorite boy to eat popcorn with!
  • You greet me EVERY TIME I walk through the door as if I have been gone for a zillion years, even if I am only gone for one minute.
  • You are incredibly sensitive and intuitive.
  • You lick (kiss) my hand like there is no tomorrow…(just because)
  • You are silly, playful and love to “dance” with me.
  • You “guard” me when I work on the computer, I just have to look to my right or left and you are there.
  • You are the BEST laundry supervisor!
  • You have a smile that makes ME and all who encounter it, smile too.
  • Your eyes are the proverbial “windows” to your soul
  • You are mine, (OURS or Daddy will get upset), we could not have asked for a more loving, devoted, intelligent, clever, silly, hilarious and wonderful dog.

Dad, Cody and I love you to pieces. Thank you for all of the love and joy you have brought to our lives, I cherish you my special boy!!!! There is a nice, juicy home-made burger in your future!!

Love, “Mom”

Love Your Pet Day

Yes, yes, yes, I know I am preaching to the choir when I am saying that today is “Love Your Pet Day”………..because all of you who are reading this blog love your pets EVERY DAY, AS IT SHOULD BE!!! Sadly, those who still continue to abandon and abuse animals will never quite understand this day. We can pray that one day they will.
