The Big 0-5

3.15.2013

It doesn't seem possible that Sam is five years old today...


Little did I know that this tiny pup would make such a big impact on our lives. 


We actually got Sam before we got married, because I had been wanting a puppy pretty much my whole last year of college.  When we picked her up, I had no idea just how much she would teach us.  We learned what it means to have take care of another living creature and that cleaning up poop and sometimes losing sleep would somehow make us love our four-legged child more than I can express.

I keep telling Andrew that Sam (and Dani) are going to live forever.  I'm not delusional, just hopeful.  So even though she's turning 5, it really does not mean she's getting older. 


I've been scouring the internet for a good doggie birthday cake recipe, but thankfully, most of them seem to be very similar.  Also, our dogs aren't known for being picky when it comes to what they eat, but I'm hopeful she'll like it.  And she'll obviously share with her sister. 


It's no secret that we love our dogs more than may be considered normal, but I can't imagine it any other way.  They love of us more than we deserve, so I think we should love them an abnormal amount. And if that means baking doggie cakes and celebrating birthdays, than so be it!

Happy birthday to one of the sweetest dogs in the world!
