Today is my birthday. I'm 12 years old today, and in human years that means I'm 83 years old. Mom is happy for me, but I can see the concern in her expression. I'm losing my hearing, I sleep more than the cats during the day, and I don't like to play anymore. Mom had my boodwork done in September, and it looked beautiful. But, I'm mom's special dog. I've been here since I was 6 weeks old. Mom was in her 20's when she got me, I was her first dog as an adult human. Her children were 4 and 5, I was there when they both started kindergarten. Now they are both in high school, and I will see them graduate. I've been there for mom when she's been happy, silly, sad, and lonely. I was there for her when her brother got cancer and died. I saw her change. She has given me a forever home, and has returned the love that I so openly give her. She has forgiven me when I spread trash throughout the house. She has always been there for me and taken care of me when I was sick. I have had a full, happy 12 years. Mom doesn't need to worry, I'm healthy and plan to stay by her side for a long time. Thank you all for your birthday gifts and wishes. This is a special birthday, indeed.
