Happy birthday to the love and light of my life.

“It’s just a dog,” said no canine lover ever.

My precious little fur baby turns one today! Little Miss Vivienne has brought not only me, but family, friends, neighbors and even strangers, more joy than we could have ever imagined.

She’s a unique character with a complex personality – like her human! Playful, affectionate, aloof, independent and simply wants to be with her tribe every possible moment of the day and night. She is truly woman’s best friend and companion.

So here’s to wishing Viv a very happy first birthday! May she live a long and healthy life – because I cannot imagine my world without her.
