Dear Kosmo,

I can't believe today you turn 5 years old! It seems like yesterday that I seen you for the fist time, so small and cute. You stole my heart and there was no way I could let you go:

You still remain one of the cutest puppies I've ever seen! We used to say you look like you got washed too many times because your spots were so faded in the beginning. You grew up so fast!

Thank you for teaching me so many things in the last five years. I never knew I could love a doggy as much as I do you. I'm glad it was you who introduced me to the love of cavaliers; you are the reason I could never live without one now. You've also taught me many things such as health issues, what to look for, who to see, and most recently the most important lesson: to put everything else aside that may be wrong and just to focus on making the most of the time I have here with you. I hope you are with me for many many more years to come. In fact, I would keep you by my side forever if I could. :)

"I love you too much Kosmo" - isnt that what I always say to you? :) It still stands. May you have as many balls to chase as you want and many many more walkies and outings in the years to come. Happy birthday buddy!! <3

The coolest dog!

As some of you may not know, I just finished a four year bachelor's degree in nursing. Although it feels good to be done, this completion also comes with the reality that I must take, and pass, a licensing exam before I am able to practice. With this comes many many study dates and the end of "having a life" as I know it.

As a result, I've been over to many different people's homes over the last little while. Last night, myself and 5 other friends met up with one of the best people in the world; a professor who regularly works with students who have failed the exam. Although none of us have failed, we decided to ask if she'd be willing to study with us to prepare to which she obliged.

I met a new friend last night.

I would like you all to meet the cutest, most energetic motorcycle riding dog on the planet.. Joey!

Joey only knows commands in french, but his tricks include rolling over, dancing, and using those big eyes of his to get whatever his little heart desires. He definitely is in the category of being one of the most spoiled dogs I've ever met! In the few hours we were there, he got to lick icing off a plate, have peanuts, literally destroy a toy and made us all laugh with his "extra" dish of veggies. When he gets in trouble, he is called by his full name and it is the funniest thing to watch.. he knows exactly when he has been naughty and will slink across the floor with his beady little "I'm sorry!" eyes.. Thanks for the good time, Joey! :)
