Happy Anniversary!!

Two years ago on Saturday, my friend Jennifer pinged me and asked if I was interested in a dog. I said maybe and she invited me over to see what had shown up in her yard. Mind you, I had no real intention of getting a dog at this time because I was about to take a couple of trips out of town and had no idea what to do with a dog. However, this is what I saw:

I was immediately in love and two days later (two years ago today), I brought this crazy little being home for the first time:

I worked a place for him to stay while I took my trips and then figured out how to make him a permanent part of my world....and permanent is definitely the case. He makes me happy every day when I come home from work. He meets me at the door and no matter how he if feeling he is jumping up and down trying to get my attention so that I'll give him hugs. He and I fight for the same seat on the couch and if I'm there first, he just curls up on top of me. Every morning we have a little Zen moment where we sit on the bed facing one another and put our foreheads together and just breathe. I cannot imagine my life without him now and it breaks my heart every time he is sick (he has pneumonia again, by the way). And I just have to think that I have given him as much as he has given to me.

I love you, sweetest of all sweet boys...Leo.
