One year ago today I became an angel. Mom says it ranks as one of the worst days of her life. But she knew that letting me become an angel was the best gift she could give me. She says it was the least she could do for me considering all the love & happiness I had given to her. We both wish that our time together could have been longer, but we are both happy for the time we had together.

Yesterday was my "Gotcha Day". Never in a million years would my mom have ever thought she would be celebrating my 9th without me. Mom kept herself pretty busy yesterday so she wouldn't be thinking about it. She did give the other pups one of my favorite treats last night in honor of me. I loved a Kong filled with peanut butter & treats. That's what everyone celebrated my day with.

I'm borrowing this from Sunny Bunny's diary, hope she doesn't mind.
I will lend to you for awhile a puppy, God said,
For you to love her while she lives
and to mourn for her when she is gone.
Maybe for nine or eleven years, or maybe for two or three
But will you, till I call her back take care of her for me?
She'll bring her charms to gladden you and (should her stay be brief)
you'll always have her memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise that she will stay, since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.
I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowd life's land I have chosen you.
Now will you give her all your love
Nor think the labour vain
Nor hate me when I come to take my pup back again.
I fancied that I heard them say
For all the joys this pup will bring, the risk of grief you'll run.
Will you shelter her with tenderness
Will you love her while you may
And for the happiness you'll know forever grateful stay.
But should I call her back much sooner than you've planned
Please brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.
If, by your love, you've managed my wishes to achieve,
In memory of her that you've loved,
Cherish every moment with your faithful bundle,
and know she loved you too.
