It is hard to believe we celebrated Sassy’s last earthly birthday 5 years ago.  I remember that day very well.  She is and will always be my heart dog.  Doesn’t mean I don’t love Snickers, Bosch or Jasmine any less my heart expands to allow me to love them all.  She will just hold that special spot. 

Happy 12th birthday on the Bridge my sweet Sugar Bear.

Without our family here days like this would be a lot tougher.
