WARNING: If you aren’t an animal lover, you won’t understand any of what I’m about to say… It’s a hard thing to watch your dog grow older. I’ve done many heart felt posts on Jayda but none are as hard as knowing she’s getting older. As many of you know, Jayda has had a super special place in my heart that no other dog can fill. Yes I love my other dogs very much but Jayda has helped me through some very difficult times. Today was her 6th birthday. I can’t believe she’s already 6. Is her life already half over? I have no idea. I can only hope to have her around for a long time to come. I know birthdays shouldn’t be sad, but to me her birthday reminds me that dogs just don’t live long enough.
On a lighter note though, my spunky little girl had a fabulous day! She laid around like a queen and then I made her a turkey cake. That’s right. It’s turkey, carrots, celery, potatoes, and an egg mixed together then baked for an hour. She LOVED it! She also wore her birthday hat, which she hates and later tore apart! It’s the same birthday hat I wrote a number 5 on last year (because the rest of the hats are packed) I used this year. I turned the 5 to a 6. She’s still as spunky as ever! I love her so much!
