On Thursday, Nola will be five years old. I can't believe it! My first dog, my heart dog, my baby girl and my learning curve is all grown up. I couldn't ask for a better dog.
It sounds trite, but she couldn't be more perfect if she was made just for me (maybe she was!). I never imagined that the tiny 8 week old trouble maker would turn into this incredible, charismatic little spitfire you see on the blog. I can't believe how lucky I am.
For those who've had a heart dog, you understand exactly what I mean: Having this perfect dog that puts all others to shame, that's built to fit you perfectly and challenges you just the right way (or maybe I just like being kept on my toes ;)), the one pet you can't imagine life without. It's the most exhilarating and at the same time terrifying thing you can experience with a dog.
If you haven't had a heart dog, you'll get there! There's a Nola out there for everyone. <3
If that wasn't the most disjointed thing I've ever read, I don't know what was. ;) I'm all kinds of sentimental and sappy right now!
