My First Baby

To be honest, I was never really a dog person growing up. Yes, puppies were cute, but I was a bit scared of dogs! Who would have thought that I'd fall in love with a cute, stinky little puppy and that he'd become such an important and special part of our family.

Yes, Chance ("Luck" in French) wiggled his way into my heart forever.

He's been through all sorts of adventures with me over the years. He's seen me through good and bad: break-ups, births of nieces and nephews, weddings, deaths of loved ones, and the birth of his human sister, Little One. Well, he wasn't there in the hospital room with me, but he was a source of companionship during my long weeks of bed rest during pregnancy.

Happy 10th Birthday to my first baby! You may be my canine baby, but you're just as special as my Little One :)
Little One will be 3 years old in a month! My babies are growing up way too quickly for my liking! :(
 Hubby's Birthday cake from Ultimately Chocolate! I chose the Chunky Chocolate Blitz - Rich milk chocolate truffle icing layered between chocolate cake made with chunks of milk and semi-sweet chocolate. Decorated with semi-sweet chocolate truffle icing.

Hubs celebrated his birthday yesterday and to avoid global warming, I decided not to put candles on his cake. Just kidding.

Happy Birthday Chance!!! Cannot believe it's been 10 years since you were a little fluff ball with those blue eyes sleeping on what looked like a huge bed compared to your little self!!

That's hubby's once a year indulgence. It's so rich that we had HALF a cake left for a week! One tiny sliver will do for a serving. So good!!!

C said...

Yay! I was beginning to worry about that darn feed! LOL!

You should have come over for cake! We had some leftovers! It's only a 6+ hr drive for you! ;) LOL! xo

I know!!! Remember how tiny he was? Oh, I miss him that small. With each birthday, I get a bit sad. Can't help but know that we will outlive our doggies. :(
