Happy Gotcha Day Dahlia!

My gosh, where has the time gone? Three years ago today we woke up in the morning knowing that our lives would change that day. Later in the afternoon, we picked up a Cocker Spaniel named Coeby and transported him an hour and a half away from here, where we met up with the rescue that had Dahlia (and who were taking Coeby in). I still remember walking Coeby around waiting for Trish to show up with Dahlia, turning and seeing this woman walk by with this GORGEOUS black dog with this huge tail. And then suddenly it dawned on me. That was MY gorgeous black dog with the huge tail. I really could not have imagined then how much this dog would come to mean to me. She's just the best and the past three years have been awesome.

What I have learned this year
by Dahlia F. Beast

1. To stop and sniff the flowers instead of peeing on them.

2. That no matter how wet you get, you must always ALWAYS keep the tail dry.

3. That lily pads are ALMOST worth swimming for.

4. That Mommy comes up with the BEST photo shoots.

6. That being kicked out of Mommy's chair is no fun!

7. That even though they protect my feet in the winter, I will get the utmost sympathy if I give the woe face and refuse to move off the couch when Mommy puts the booties on me.

8. That there is definitely a point when it becomes too much snow.

Congratulations Crys and David! I'd say congratulations to Dahlia, but I'm pretty sure you guys should be beyond honoured to be so graced by her company ;)
