Today, I am thankful for 11 years and counting with T.
Talk about life changing events.
T adopted us (or, depending on your view, we adopted him) on June 21, 1997.
S and I drove over 100 miles to Limon, CO, to pick him up. 'Twas love at first sight when we caught our first glimpse of our best-buddy-to-be, a handsome, 50 pound Chocolate Labrador Retriever puppy walking around the parking lot with the breeder's young son.
T has been the light of our lives ever since. 11 years and counting of love, laughter and joy, not to mention thousands of laps around the neighborhood park and treats by the handful.
I guess that's what happens when the best dog ever is a member of your family.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
