As I mentioned in my last post, it was Thea’s birthday yesterday.
My special girl is 9 years old.
This birthday made me a little sad. Of course, I’m grateful for every birthday she has. But Thea is a dog, so each birthday brings me closer to her last.
Every day with Thea is precious. Over the last five years, with the sheer number of changes in our life – finishing grad school, dating Jason, getting a job/working full time, getting engaged, buying a house, getting married – my focus has been pulled in so many different directions. Thea often gets shortchanged. It also doesn’t help that she has an attention whore for a sister.
But we’re also so happy that she has Bailey for a sister. Bailey has kept Thea young; the two play together all of the time. Thea loves Bailey.
I love my quirky girl. She’s my angel, and I will cherish every day I have with her.
