Nine Years With The Tide

I didn't post on Thursday night and instead am posting on Friday morning because today, Friday, is a very special day - it's mine and The Tide's Dogiversary! That's right folks, as of today, October 28, The Tide and I have been mother and dog for nine years!

The Tide sure has been a good dog, friend, and loyal companion over these past nine years and although she has cost me more money than I ever intended for her to, she's been worth every penny and I can't imagine the last nine years without her.

The Tide continues to bring me lots of laughs and hours of joy and I'm so thankful that on Monday, October 28, 2002, I decided to drive down to the Pitt County Animal Shelter and purchase the cute little pup, despite the speeding ticket I got en route. She may have ended up weighing more than the 20 pounds the shelter folks promised but I wouldn't have it any other way.

So, thanks, The Tide for letting me be your mamma even though I said I would only be called owner. You softened this old gal's heart and taught me to love dogs more than I ever realized was possible. Here's to many more fun and happy years together as mother and dog!

The Tide Haiku

The Tide is a dog
The best friend I've ever had
She makes me laugh loud

Today is mine and The Tide's
Nine years together

The Tide gives love, joy
A loyal friend for nine years
Here's to many more
