Happy Birthday on the other side, Vinny

Postby HappyChick » July 22nd, 2010, 2:36 pm

Today is Vinny's birthday. He would have been 5 years old.

Vinny, I remember the first time I saw you and your litter mates. You were days old, so small, and your eyes were still closed. I also remember so vividly the day Shane talked me into getting you, he had already picked you out of the whole litter, but waited for my okay first. Saying "yes" to getting you was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

I promised myself I would not cry today. This is a happy day because it is the day that you came into this world. It was the start of a journey for us both, a journey that has not ended just because I can't see you anymore. I know you are never too far away. You are my inspiration in so many ways and I thank you for loving me.

Happy Birthday, my handsome boy! Mama loves you.

Not to worry, I shall cry for you! What a beautiful tribute to such a special boy. Thinking of you today as you reflect on the happy times.

Happy Birthday, Vinny. You will never be forgotten.

Oh, Our Vinny-Bo-Binny is FIVE in heaven! :)

Since you sent me the link for the homemade dog food, I have been thinking about the Vin-meister all day. I didn't know it was his Birthday, but I kept thanking him for LIKING the food and asking him to whisper in Harley's ear to eat it!

Thank you, Therese, Suzanne, and Dee.

I must confess, I did end up crying on Vin's birthday just a little. I know he would not have liked my crying, he never did like it, and would always "make" me pet him so I'd stop.

Over all, I made sure his birthday was a day of happiness.

It comforts me more than you all will ever know, to have such a wonderful group of people remembering and cherishing my Vinny too. Thank you, everyone!
