Today you turned 1 yrs old. One year ago today, I wasn't even thinking of owning a puppy. 3mos later that all changed when we had to put our heart dog to sleep. I never knew I could love another dog like I loved Garrett. I thought the only way I could start healing my broken heart was to bring home another dog, not only for me, but for Daddy, Emma and Trevor. We checked out several breeders. There was something about your litter that we came back twice. I still remember the day you pinned Trevor to the ground and he giggled. None of had giggles left after losing Garrett. That is when I decided it was meant to be. You came home with us that warm sunny day. I found it very hard to fall in love with you. You quickly changed that, and showed me how once again to love a furry friend.
You got into your share of mischiefs. From chewing computer cords, carpeting, and countless sand toys. Though you were so smart. We were truly blessed to have such a wonderful companion for us. Even at such a young age, you were Emma and Trevors Protector. You treated them like they were your own. You are so patient with them. Letting them ride you like your a horse, and when Trevor dives on you, you roll over and lick his face. (Our old dog would never of tolerated that), Nice to have a dog we don't have to worry about hurting our children.
Not only did we find you Pitch, but we found a great support group online. How they thought your mother was insane with her countless questions. We are both learning in this process. Thankfully I had someone I could turn to when you were being difficult, or challenging.
Thanks so much for opening my eyes. Giving me a chance to love a dog once again. I hope you have a great 1st Birthday, and Many more to follow. You truly mean the world to me!
