White Dog noticed tonight that earlier this week we passed our 1,900 post milestone and realized that by the year's end we will hit the magic and incredible mark of 2000 blog posts! Many of our friends were not yet part of this community when we began, tentatively, to woof our story...and some of our first friends have left blogging to travel over the Rainbow Bridge. Our lives are so amazingly different than they were back then and we could not have even begun to guess the million miles of uncharted road we have followed on our journey. White Dog has a brother now...and Michael...and we have weathered some difficult storms...and celebrated some fantastic victories...and slowly across those adventures, over that time, we have grown to be part of a family here that supports, welcomes, encourages, comforts, cares and shares. We never once forget how very blessed we are and are grateful to have stumbled our way into The Circle of Paws.
White Dog says I always get bittersweet and sentimental this time of year (and I do). But, I notice she leans a little closer to me as we post this and that her soft woof is just a tiny bit choked up.
No doubt about it, though, we are going to have to do some major celebrating in a couple of months when the postometer turns 2-0-0-0!
