White Dog is celebrating her Sixth Barkday today! Where has the time gone? And yet so much has changed since December of 2004. I know for certain that life and its experiences would be very very different if Siku Marie was not a part of our family, and my soul. If you read our blog regularly we hope that it is abundantly clear how loved this fluffy, white, big-hearted, independent-thinking Eskie girl truly is.
White Dog and I started our day with our usual ritual…she cuddles against me to waken me and I stroke her face. I tell her I love her, mi perrita blanca de mi Corazon…but today, for the first time ever…we were then bombarded by siblings, the White Dog Army, Quinn, Nuka, and Puff charging in with Steve to bark, “Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday!” and to eat dog treats in bed before breakfast!
Tonight we will party with her favorite foods and family time. This morning she and dad greeted the morning alone, together, at the Park. And in between we will periodically check our comments to read what kindnesses our friends have left…and see how well our Comment-A-Thon is going. Please let us know you have been by (at least once)!
Remember, from now until midnight Wednesday, the 22nd, every comment earns fifty cents in a donation to fund Canine Cancer Research.
Although we had hoped this would honor our friend, Luke, and his victory over the horrible monster, it has turned out that Luke is once again fighting for his life. It is vital that we unite to send the Power of the Paw to him and to work as hard as we can in every realm to eliminate this disease. Too many suffer. Too many loved ones are lost. Please support our efforts by commenting and commenting again and spreading the word. Do it for Luke. Do it for Siku's Birthday. Do it because Cancer.Touches.Everyone.
Happiest of Birthdays, Siku Marie! This is your life:
