Camera Critters - 11.8 - Happy Birthday Saki!

Camera Critters
It's hard to believe, but Saki turned a year old yesterday! Of course, we haven't had her a year yet... she was 10 weeks old when we got her, but yesterday she turned a year old!!
In that short 10 months, it's amazing to think of life without her.
She has become my shadow, even now she's at my feet as I type this. When she hears me grab my car keys - she's at the door ready to go with! And she usually does go with... she's so spoiled.
I go to sleep each night with her on the floor next to our bed but somehow during the night she sneaks into the bed, unnoticed, and I wake up with a big golden butt in my face. And what a bed hog she is! But dumb me, I move over in my sleep to give her room... enough room for her to spread out sideways in the bed. Of course if the husband is in bed she sleeps in between us. Lucky for her he leaves at 3am, so she gets a few hours of comfortable sleep.

And since the husband is deer hunting this week... guess who gets the bed the whole night?

Happy Birthday, Saki. We wouldn't trade you for the world.
We've already had one offer from someone to sell her... no way, no how. There isn't enough money. The guy said "how about a million?" and I didn't even flinch... there is no amount that could get me to sell her.

Plus, she makes a good foot warmer.

You are so right. That is how I feel about my Harley. No amount of money in the world would make me do that. Animals are the best thing in the world. Their love is unconditional.

Those are beautiful pictures of Saki. Happy Birthday to her!

When you were saying how she sleeps with you, it reminded me of Harley this morning. My hubby left for work at 6am. When I woke up a little bit ago, Harley was laying at the end of the bed near my feet where he always lays. He had the whole half of the bed to lay on, but he always stays by me. I just thought that was cute.

Gorgeous dog. Your dog's life style sounds very familar to my dog Buddy. He goes every where with us just about, he sleeps in the middle of my husband and I and I even move up to give the dog more room. I agree they do make great feet warmers in the colder months. Happy birthday to your Saki.

She is beautiful beyond words! I will always have a special place in my heart for Goldens.

P.S. I sneak my girl into the bedroom too ;-)

Oh Happy Birthday Saki, come on over and share my birthday cake as its my birthday too, but you have a long ways to catch up with me.
There just isn't anything in this world that could get me to give up my Princess or the rest of my furry babies.

We used to have cats that slept next to us. You could hear them purring and sometimes they started to chase each other and we were woken up of course. Your dog is lovely.
