This girl right here, has made this year whole
Giving to the world fourteen puppies.
Always wanting to go with me everywhere, even to Atlanta on a work morning despite her car-sickness.
Giving me the constant head nudge, paw on my lap and licks on my face.
A much needed constant in a time of major changes, many of which not wanted.
Reminding me why freedom, running unrestrained without collar or leash is what I am all about.
Letting me know when she’s pissed when I’ve been gone for too long.
Always vocalizing her hurt, frustration and anger and over-the-top-love when I come “home” wherever that is at the moment.
Freakishly sensing my emmotions or nerves or sadness and responding accordingly.

Teaching me the greatest lesson of 2011-2012… life is really all about snuggling with those you love.

When I can’t give her that freedom,
I feel in debt.
I hope God thinks like that and
is keeping track of all
the bliss He
