In a couple of days it'll be 3 years since I got Saba. How the time flies...
He's changed my life in such a huge way. Me, who always pet other dogs by "tapping" their heads and making sure the dogs are at least an arm's length away from me, making faces if I see a drop of drool and feeling pity for people who had dog hair on their clothes..! And of course the famous: "I'll never get a dog that sheds or drools..."... Wow... got punished for that one!!
Saba, I love..:
how you look at me with your eyes when you beg for food,
how you never touch anything other than your toys,
how you let out a big sigh when I kiss your sleepy head,
how you "rescue" your toys off the floor from the vacum cleaner when I miss one while cleaning up,
how you will stand in front of my bed (or the sofa) with the saddest, beaten down look on your face until I get off, so YOU can get on...
how you'll hear the quietest sound of someone opening the fridge while you are upstairs sleeping, yet you won't hear me calling you to come
how you will try to run and pull me ahead when we walk just to get to the next thing, yet you always wait for my dad when we go on trails, since he's slowed down a bit this year
how you think everyone is your friend and can't understand why people don't like you rubbing your face on their pants
how you like to be "tucked in" with a blankie in the winter
how you'll stand over a toy you find in a park/field until I come there and let you know it's okay to play with
how you pee and poo on command when it's bloody cold or raining outside
how quickly you learn where the treats are hidden
how you stuff your whole head in a shopping bag when I get home from a pet store
how you'll find the most comfortable bed (preferrably with a pillow) in any house, just to take a nap,
what a great camping companion you are,
how many kisses you give in the morning when you first wake up
how much you love everyone around you...
and many many more things that would take too long to list
He's got everyone wrapped around his paw! He's such a good, happy guy. He's loved so much and I just can't imagine life without him. And if he's a little spoiled and has more toys than I had growing up... so what, right? Their life is so short we have to make it the best it possibly can be! I love you, my big fuzzy bear!!!! :-* :-*

Happy gotcha day!
Agnes, that was great!! I love that Abby got in there too HAHHAA
I still remember that first day I saw you and Saba walking down the street in the dusk and in the snow, and the look on your face when I said "oh good luck!" but then, Saba never was a holy terror that much during his puppyhood.
He's such a character your guy, and we love him to bits too.
Me, Abzilla and the Helomonster.
