One Year Ago.......

I cant believe its been a year! A whole year!! The first picture is of the day I first met Joey. Oh my goodness, I was scared and nervous. Would I be a good mommy? Would I be able to handle the responsibility? Is he going to chew everything? What if he pees in the house??????? Augh!!! But this little creature wormed his way into my soul of souls. I couldnt stop thinking about him!!! I felt as though he did need me! So I took the plunge!!!!! Yahhhhhhh!!!!
And, to my astonishment, he was a jewel. He was so dang cute. Got the housebreaking thing within a couple days. And has been the greatest companion in my life! Wow how my life has changed! He has brought me so much love and joy and purpose to life!!! He is so easy to take care of and gives me so much back! I am indeed lucky!!! The next picture is the first picture I had taken of him when I brought him home. Oh what an angel so sweet and innocent laying by a tennis shoe! If you could see that shoe now after taking Joey on at least 3 walks a day!!! Hiking in the canyons and to our "Secret Grove". All around the lakes and trails of San Diego! Oh Im so thankful for Joey, My everything. Its been one year! Wow! I cant believe it. The bonus is he has brought me to all of you! You are such awesome friends and I know you are just like me and love your Golden as much as I love Joey! Give your Goldens some hugs and kisses from us, wont you? (Hugs and kisses apply to non Goldens too!!!)

What a sweet little bundle of fluff! I am so thankful you got Joey too. Without him, you and I may have never met! I am so glad that Joey is part of your family now, and in turn, you are part of ours! Our little pack is awesome! (And not so little anymore!!)

Here's to many, many more happy years with your furbabies.

Auntie Sue, Jack, Jill, Kona, and Harley too!

Yep. They make our days. They show us such inconditional forms of loving. Always besides us. Always staring at us with those loving eyes. Pipa changed our lives too.
And Joey is such a boootiful Golden! :)

Happy Birthday, Joey!
