This month, our girl Beulah will turn one year old. She is a girl with a fierce, independent spirit. She's gone through at least 6 collars; losing them in wrestling matches with her big "sister" Delta. She's stolen countless numbers of socks, torn a hole in a couch cushion (which we later replaced), and kept us from sleeping many nights (when we were sleepy, and she was not).
But you know what?
I love this Chocolate girl more than I can stand. She goes along with me for every run--long or short. She snuggles up on the couch when she's sleepy, and puts her head in my lap. She's always happy and hyper--and you can't help but smile when you're around her.
It's amazing to me how much an animal can become a part of your life. I wouldn't have it any other way!
