Willoughby 7.75 we actually have the same birthday 6/30
I've never in my 39 years not had a least one dog. I'm so glad to be part of this site.
What is one thing your dog does that reminds you to open your heart and love more deeply?
I have two small children (5 and 2) so quite frequently things get loud. When I'm the imperfect mother for letting it get too loud for the 100th time each day, I get the kids attention, usually by being louder than them. Then I let loose with the "shhhh" to beat all shushes. Which will bring my little 35 pound Jack Russell, Black Lab mix to my side with her wiggly body. That long black rapidly swinging tail I envision as my mommy eraser. She reminds me to forgive myself for not being perfect, though she thinks I am.
