Happy 13th Birthday, Darla Dawg...

Man, it seems like just a few years ago I got Darla as a Christmas present for David. We had lost our prior dog, Shadow, and I thought the time was right to get another one.
Darla was born on November 09, 1998 and we got her on January 11, 1999. I used to take her to work with me at European Home Collection and keep her in my office with me until we got her potty trained.
She has been, and still is, the best little dog for us. She is sweet, loving and all the things you want your pet to be. I guess as I watch her now with Anna Grace I see the same things I saw 13 years ago when Cassidy was just a baby. Wherever the baby is, that's where you will find Darla giving her "famous" puppy kisses. She did it to Cassidy and now she is doing the same to Anna Grace.
One thing about Darla is that she is so very loyal. Every night when I take a bath she lays on my shoes right beside the tub. Everytime I am upstairs in my scrapbook room, she is right under my chair, and at night when David and I are watching TV, she is laying on the ottoman beside us. When the lights go out she goes into our room. When she was a young pup she would jump up on the bed and take her "spot", but now she has to wait for us to lift her up to the bed.
Although she is 13 years old, she is still very much a puppy at times. David and I both marvel at how she still runs around and has so much energy.
Happy Birthday Darla're the BEST.
