Happy Birthday Winnie!
Okay, so yes, this is a Happy Birthday blog post to my dog. Yes, I honestly believe she will read it. Yes, I am crazy. Almost two years ago, J and I welcomed a skiddish, terrified, anxious, gorgeous, sweet dog into our home. I had fallen in love with her the minute I saw her from the car as we pulled up to meet her. It has been quite a journey. Having been through a lot, she was not very trusting, for which I can not blame her one bit. Over time, with a lot of work and mostly the help of an amazing pack of dogs (and people) in the neighborhood, she has grown into an amazing, strong, confident, beautiful dog. Sure, we’ve been through a couple couches and some really nice shoes, but it is well worth it to be able to go home to all the unconditional love and companionship she brings. No matter how tough my day is, she is there at the door to greet me with a wagging tail and more recently a husky howl. So Happy 4th Birthday (we think, kinda made up the date cause we had no idea, and we think she’s around 4?) to the most amazing, sweetest dog I could have ever asked for. And yes, there will be a party tonight. And no, I don’t care how ridiculous that sounds.
