Lucky Number Seven(th Birthday)

Two years and two days ago, we brought her home.

If “settled in” is synonymous with “took over the couch.”

She’s a little grayer in the muzzle now, and has a touch of arthritis in her toes, but she’s just as cuddly as ever, and she’s even braved various bodies of water (up to her belly, at least).

Car ride!
