celebratory day...

Dirt Dah Der.

My Dirt.

Today she is 10. She has saved my life literally and figuratively many times these past 10 years. She has been there through very thick and very thin. She healed so much and loved me when I was not even remotely capable of loving myself. She gave me strength and purpose and comfort.

She also happens to share a birthday with roomie which made me realize, at the time, that roomie was family. They shared a kindred spirit from the start.

Today roomie gets lots of presents and flowers and Dirt gets yummy treats.

I am thankful for both.

Happy birthday to the puppy. I feel the same way about my puppies. They give such unconditional love and support. You are very lucky to have such a wonderful puppy in your life. I know she isn't a puppy but to me no matter how old they are I call them all puppies. :)

Happy birthday, Dirt! Thanks for being a healing presence for our dear Bleu! May you have a wonderful day filled with treats, sunbeams, cozy naps and sweet doggie dreams.

Happy birthday Dirt. I have had a cat for 14 years, that I share a similar connection with. Nothing like fur babbies!

Happy Birthday Dirt & roomie !!!

Yes, their unconditional love is amazing. You brought up thoughts of "my soul" who was one of a kind.

You can post my comments now. This new year I am not going to be so paranoid (I don't care anymore about what work would think).

Happy Birthday puppy! I completely understand what you said about your pet. My kitty makes me feel the same way and has gotten me through a lot in these past 13 years.

Happy Birthday DIRT!!! I have to say- I know it was 23 years ago, but the post with yoru Xmas card on it is absolutely gorgeous. Bliss is a gorgeous doll Bleu- omg he is just scrumptious!!! However- I have to say that I peed laughing at seeing puppy's name in print "Dirt" It just was so cute/funny to me to see that- know what I mean? LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL You have to tell me how he got that lil name!
BTW: I am the queen of bagels and I challenge you to a bagel fest. Melt some cheese on them- whoahhhhhhhhhh
OK don't. I'll do that for you :)
