April is Kona’s birthday month. Kona is our beautiful, personality-plus, high-energy large dog, unlike any dog we’ve had before. April 17th is her day and this year she turns 3. Given the short life span of our pets, especially most large dogs, we know that while 3 sounds like a pup, she qualifies as a young adult. When I think back three years, it’s hard to believe we didn’t know her then because she is such an integral part of our life now. It is hard to remember what mornings were like when she wasn’t there to enthusiastically greet us and welcome the day in.
Birthdays – whether it’s the birthday of a person or pet we love – remind us how quickly life goes by. When life gets hectic and the hours zoom by it’s easy to overlook how special every day is and how fast each day becomes history.
Give the people and pets in your life a hug today and appreciate the now!
