Happy Birthday to my two best friends


Two of my best friends share birthdays today. Sadly, one of them is no longer with us. My dear dog, Boss would have turned ten today. She nearly made it and we could have tried for that benchmark, but it would have been cruel.

Nearly 10-year-old Boss.

It’s weird without her. I wake up most days and look down beside the bed where she used to lay. I come from home from work and am greeted by Mahli and it always hits me that Boss isn’t there to lick my legs and wag her tail.

I have to tell you, Boss, whatever dimension you’re in, that you brought me great joy and comfort. Your unconditional love and loyalty, you’re happiness at the minor things (bones, visits, water, pats), the way you cared for Mahli, the way you’d follow me around the house, the delight you gave Blake and all the tiny things that made you the wonderful dog you were – I appreciate. I’m greatful I shared your full life, and though we have Mahli, you know there will never be another dog like you.

Happy 10th Birthday Boss.

And to my other best friend, Sue Ashby. I wish, on this very special 50th Birthday all the joy and happiness you deserve. I want you to look after yourself and spend more ME time. Your boys are old enough now for you to take a bit of your time back. They really won’t mind because they know you how important it is for you to be happy, healthy and chilled. You’ve had a tough year and things can only get better from here. I wish for you wonderful times of boundless joyfulness and things that make YOU blissful.
