Amazingly, though all of the GRE prep, Anatomy & Physiology torture, time spent with 40+ laboratory pigeons, and volunteering at multiple physical therapy practices, I almost let today slip by without realizing.
Today is Marge's 4th birthday. According to the Georgia group who originally rescued her, her birthday was June 28, 2007.
It really is hard to believe that she's four already... and even harder to believe that she is the same dog that I adopted three years ago (her Gotcha Day is tomorrow!). She has grown into a confident and happy dog. I never had any idea that we'd be where we are today.
I admit, I didn't buy her anything yet. I promised her that I'd buy her some stinky treats at our next agility trial on July 9.
I did, however, complete this 7-minute video highlighting the past year. This video is one of my absolute favorite things to do each year.. and, like the last two, I am happy with how this one came out. The music is a little too much on the pop-side for me and I actually picked out at least one better song AFTER I had already made the whole thing, but it works for Marge's attention-grabbing personality and fierce courage and determination in all that she does.
I am so lucky to have such an amazing friend to share my life with!
