A decade seems like such a long time. Ten years. 3653 Days. 3456 blog posts. And yet when I look at her, it is nearly impossible to comprehend that Siku Marie, THE White Dog, my daemon, Little White Dog of My Heart and I have weathered that much time together. It is as if she has always been and yet only has for such a short time.
Today Siku is ten. It is her birthday. Of course there are plans to celebrate and feast...that is the White Dog Army style. But our special moment,... the time of just she and I, happened before dawn this morning...sitting as we often do in the momma chair in the dark waiting for the day. I told I was truly blessed that she shared my soul and my journey and I thanked her for her devotion and patience. She is the embodiment of all that is good in the world. She snuggled against my heart and together, for a long magical time the world was just us. Then the rest of the White Dog Army and Steve rushed out to share birthday greeting and nuzzles
Happy Birthday, Siku Marie!
You with a myriad of titles and nicknames...today the White Dog Army unites in one voice and one adjective...beloved. And you always will be.
Puff the Magical, YoYoMa, Taiko the Tender-Heart, Bella E. Premurosa, Sachi the Undaunted, and Zsofia the Sky-Eyed...dad and momma!
