Today, my beloved golden retriever, Vandy, turns 10 years old.
I can’t believe he is 10 already! Where does the time go?
Even though he drives me absolutely bonkers sometimes, he will always be my 1st baby.
On this day, I would like to make some promises to Vandy. You see, even though he was my 1st baby, he is often ignored and displaced. This happens to our beloved pets when kids enter the household.
I promise to try and remember to fill your water bowl each morning.
I promise to remind Sadie to feed you.
I promise to give you your medicine so your old bones and joints are well greased.
I promise to take you on more walks around the block…but you must in turn promise not to poop all over the sidewalk. Mommy cleans up enough poop already.
I promise to let the kids be messy at dinner so you get the scraps on the floor.
I promise to continue letting you snuggle with me on the couch.
I promise to love you unconditionally….forever and ever.
