You, your mom Irene, and your family have meant a lot to me and my little ones over the years. You have inspired me to keep moving forward despite the many challenges in the lives of my babies and even myself. You have always fought on, no matter what, and you definitely enjoyed all the positives that life has to offer since you have been with Irene and the rest of the family.
I can state for sure that you, Irene, and your family have brought me much pleasure with the photos of all your adventures. I love seeing your wide smile, and the smiles of the rest of your family — Stefan running in his chair, Jessie digging (ha-ha), Emi, Tualek, Twix, Benji, Simba and Lulu exploring with her keen scent and alert ears (She is extremely independent, I think. Do you think so?). It has brought me much morning joy over the years. You are blessed to live in such a beautiful area, to have such a wonderful smile, and to revel in adventure. Whenever I am near Lake Erie I think of you and your family and all your adventures.
You, Irene, and the family have done a tremendous amount of great work fighting against puppy mills and working FOR differently-abled dogs. I know you have saved many lives with your good work. Still, the battle rages on, and we all must continue spreading the word. It truly is important work, and you have done a fabulous job. Through you the whole world has been alerted to the causes.
Now, on the occasion of your 18th birthday (and Irene’s birthday as well), it is important that we pay tribute to your inspiration, your hard work, and the last 6 years of adventures. You have brought the world love and joy, taught us all a lot, and shown us that love truly can make things right. We could never thank you enough.
