The decision to say farewell is never easy. And while 14 years can sound long, depending on your perspective, it comes up short by other reckonings. Firefly has been such a huge part of my life - and my husband's - and that makes saying goodbye even harder to say.
Birthdays are important milestones for our furry family members. And if they have the kind of medical history Firefly does, they take on a new importance. Especially when you're talking 14 YEARS. He's our champion lemon - and we wouldn't have it any other way.
If you bring furkids into a relationship, you know there's an ultimatum involved. A potential significant other needs to meet THEIR approval to continue hanging around. It doesn't always work out. Other times it does - and your husband ends up being the favorite of those little feline traitors.
Who doesn't love Thanksgiving? One day out of the year, where you get a pass to fill your plate and indulge. (No regrets allowed) It's tops in most people's books. In our household, though, Thanksgiving means appeasing four VERY demanding little beasts.
Firefly turns 13 today. Can you believe it?
This month marks the one-year anniversary of our battles with Firefly's eyes. Unbelievably, we've made it through to the other side. And while he may not have the same face he did before the troubles started, we'll take the plateau.
Greyhounds are notoriously lazy dogs. You often see pictures of them sprawling on beds and couches. Since Juniper refused to figure out how to use her back legs, though, she's never been one of them. Now that's changed.
Firefly decided he wasn't content supervising just my research. Now he insists on being my line editor and spending most of the afternoon with me.
All of my work is supervised by a top Research Assistant.
I simply can't believe my baby boy turns 12 today!
