Happy Birthday Bella!  You are now 3 years old today!

I clearly remember the day we brought you home…howling and screaming all the way home in your crate!  I thought to myself…”boy, do I really want another dog??? Especially this howly one??”

What was I thinking!!!  Every day, you bring us joy and happiness to our family!  Your morning “woo woo’s” to wake us up to a new day, your “woo woo’s” (with your bone in your mouth) greeting us when we come home….the joyous sound of “welcome home mommy and daddy” fills the house.  What a blessing you have been to all of us!  Domino has a best friend and sister who he loves to play with!  Erin and Brandon have a “best friend” at their side.  And the shear joy and laughter you bring to me personally has been the best “medicine” that anyone could ever prescribe!

Thank you for being the little “fart” you are, Bella!  We are sooo looking forward to many, many more years of the same!  Happy Birthday my baby Bella!


Happy Birthday Donahan Bella Luna of Tri-Ste!  You are 2 years old today!!!

It’s hard to believe that two years ago that you were born and that you were just a thought in our minds.  I remember going to your house and seeing all your brothers and sisters and having a hard time determining which puppy we wanted to bring home.

We are SO happy that we chose you to be in our family!  You are great companion to all of us (even Domino!!) and we couldn’t imagine life without you!  You are a wonderful dog, full of vigor and zest!  There is never a dull moment when you are around!

We are looking forward to MANY more years with you!  We can’t wait for the adventures to unfold!!

So enjoy your day (even though it will be spent in the ring) little Bella!  We love you lots!!!

It’s hard to believe that another year has come and gone!  I count my blessings that I have such wonderful people in my life who support and love me (or at least I think they do! hehe)  Even though I may be another year older, have a few more creaks in my joints, gained a few more pounds and have a few more gray hairs, I can’t complain.  It’s been a wonderful year (with many more to come)!  I won’t say how old I am, but I will say it’s getting closer to that 1/2 century mark!  Oi!  So cheers to everyone!

Happy Belated Birthday Erin!  It’s hard to believe that you are 15 years old!!

There are so many words that I want to express to you but don’t know where to begin.  I found a very touching poem that says it all.  Hope you like it sweetie!

An Angel Left Her Wings

©  Tina M. Marascia

I have this little angel. For me she left her wings.
She has no idea how much happiness she truly brings.
She brightens up my days with her smiles and her laughs.
She helps me to remember all the blessings that I have.

Her face, it is so perfect, she’s sweet and soft and pure.
Sometimes she can be willful and sometimes she is demure.
She tries her very hardest to please and do what’s right.
She gives the greatest hugs from morning until night.

Every person that has known her sees this light within her soul
I know that in this whole great world, she has a special role.
She’s helpful and considerate to everyone she knows
This light in her shines brighter as my angel grows.

When she sees someone is sad, it opens up her heart.
She wants to do all that she can; she wants to do her part.
She’ll squeeze away the sorrow and make me forget about my pain.
She shows me where the sun is when we’re hiding from the rain.

I know that God must love me, He showed me with His Grace
I knew just how completely when I saw my angel’s face.
And in that very moment when she came into my world,
I knew that she was so much more than just my baby girl.

She would be my sunshine, with a sweetness that won’t end.
And when she grows up one day she would be my closest friend.
She would be the reason I would always try my best.
For my little angel baby girl would be my greatest test.

When God entrusts to you an angel, who has left her wings for you.
Encircle her with love with everything you do.
Let her know God made her, and that He trusts you with her care.
Be sure to make time for special moments with her to share.

And when at night she finally says her prayers and goes to sleep
I Thank Him for my angel, and ask for him to always keep
A watchful eye and hand to protect her from this world.
Protect my little angel; protect my baby girl.
