I need to pause for a moment in the middle of the (incredibly slowly told) South Africa story to mark a grand occasion in my life. Today, Oliver is 1!
It has to be true that people who own dogs are happier and live longer. Since O joined my household in March I’ve received markedly less sleep, but I’ve also laughed, loved and even socialized more. It took me three years to meet any of my neighbors, but I know them all now only because of the little man. Dogs bring folks together. Kumbaya.
So, here’s to you, Ollie, on your first birthday. You certainly have made my life more full and interesting this year. In celebration, let’s take a look back at a year in your life.
(Also note my new, fancy camera! (1st and last shots) It makes even my photos look good. Hooray!)
