One day and 2 years ago, an angel was born.
Ever since I first laid eyes upon my pooch-smoochy, I knew we were meant to be.
Looking back at 2 Christmases ago, and how badly I’d missed having a companion, it’s nothing short of a miracle how April came to be. The loss of my beautiful dog, Chica, was magnified as the holidays approached.
I wished and prayed hard for a puppy, and unknowingly, a few days later (New Years Day), April was born. When my family and I met her, she had literally just become adoptable. It was all such perfect timing, that I began to realize that this was no coincidence…She was meant to be mine and I was meant to be hers. We brought her home that same day, filling what was once a hollow home with loads of love. Who knew that such a tiny package was capable of mending the broken hearts of a family of 5.
The impact that April has had on my family has been enormous, and I couldn’t be more grateful to call her my little baby. I smile from ear to ear again when I talk about her, and my heart really feels full again.
I know you can’t read this, but happy birthday to my 2 year old beagle. Your mommy loves you more than anything in this world! Keep on being sassy. XO
