Happy Valentine's Day......

Today is also my birthday.....but really at my age I don't care much anymore. It is a bittersweet day today since we would have celebrated Miss Lizzy's 11th birthday. Never did know what day she was born....just February so when I adopted her nine years ago just made sense we would celebrate together.
With Rudi many years ago.....

She hated me that birthday.....

Beautiful girl!!!!

 Before TJ, Faith and Tank moved in permanently , we had a constant in and out of fosters.....Lizzy took it in stride ,but I always tried to have some time with just the two of us on Valentine's Day....usually a super long walk which was about her favorite thing in the world. And of course some kind of yummy treat!! 
Everything was great until July of 2014, when my girl got so sick. Then to find out a month later she had three months to live. That was a terrible time I can tell you. But tried to make the best of it so I wouldn't impact the dogs with crying and depression. At the end of 2014 things seemed to stabilize and you start living in a false sense of security. So we got through 2015 with some ups and downs and I was happy she was still doing so well....especially last year when she reached her tenth birthday. But pancreatic cancer is a horrible thing and sadly for all of us I had let her go in July, almost two years to the day when she first got sick. 
The reason I talk about Lizzy more than my other babies is because she was my first dog ever....I was already in my 50's when I got her. 

I wish her happy birthday today.....up there at the Rainbow Bridge running around with all her friends. Love you Miss Lizzy...
I wish all of you a Happy Valentine's Day....give a big hug to all your 2 and 4 legged friends ( in the case of Niki NuNu 3 legs!!!) and have a wonderful afternoon.....
