Our crazy little pup is three today. We've had her since she was only like 6 weeks old. It's been a wild ride, but I love her to pieces (even when she licks me in the eyeball to wake me up like she did this morning).
I grew up in a house with dogs; married a man who was allergic and I thought we would not be dog-owners. Then, we found one he wasn't allergic to and got her. The first few months were crazy, but totally worth it (even more so when I had my gall bladder removed and stopped feeling horrible all the time).
Looking forward to many many many more years, with our little Chi.
