Thankful Thursday - Hailey

Sunday, September 4th,  marks 12 years since Lee came into our lives and changed them forever.  

Who would have suspected that this little face, as shown on PetFinder, would have the impact she had!

While Lady attributes most of her grey hair to this former very destructive pup (now just occasionally destructive, but doesn't listen pup), she can't imagine life without her.

Puppy Lee pre living with us

current Lee

She has taught us so much about owning a dog and anxiety. She has been loving and made us laugh. She always reminds us she is independent and will do things the way and when she wants to. She has taught us patience (ok this is still a work in progress). She has connected us with a community of dog lovers we would have no business knowing who live all over the world. She has started some very important friendships. At age 12 years, 8 months, she is almost exactly the dog we always wanted (minus the wanting to destroy the house when storms roll through and trying to fight with Charlotte).

Happy 12th Gotcha Day Hailey! We love you!
