When we got Emma in July 2007, we were told she was 4 months old, and that her birthday would be end of February / beginning of March. So, we decided to celebrate her birthday on February 28th.
Look how much she's grown!
Here she is the day we got her
and here's my big 2 year old!

We didn't do much for her birthday today. But she is getting a ChewLotta bone tonight while I watch a movie or two!
I am so thankful that you were born and that you came into my life. I could not imagine life without you. You certainly are the healer of my universe, which is what your name means. I know you have had a tough life. You lost your birth family, your tail, your first home (which was probably not a very great place either considering you were found wandering the streets on a very cold March day) , you spent a few months at the Humane Society, and most recently you lost your Daddy and have to put up with Mommy's emotional mood swings.
You have been such a blessing to me, and I am so fearful of ever losing you. I hope you know how special you are and how much you are loved by me and how much your daddy loved you too.
Happy 2nd Birthday, Emma!
Love, Mommy. xoxo
- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...
