Grateful for Sasha, my Fur-baby

Next to my husband, my parents and sister, Sasha is my life. Sasha has filled a void in my heart as I have yet to be blessed with human children. I deeply appreciate her warmth, her loving spirit and her playfulness. Sasha is my shadow. She follows me wherever I go; and, she knows exactly when I need her the most.

When Sasha was a baby (puppy) she would sit under my desk curled up at my feet as I worked on my doctoral dissertation. Currently, as I work on various projects she still keeps me company, but she has grown a bit too large to be under my desk. She does get as close as possible. I enjoy long walks with Sasha almost daily as the weather permits. As long as there is no torrentialĀ rain storm or worse, I will be outdoors with Sasha. Here are pictures of her enjoying the snow we had last year.

Sasha reminds me to enjoy the moment, to delight in running around outdoors, to indulge in playtime, to love and be loved, to appreciate the small (but no less important) things in our lives, to be genuine, to stop and smell the flowers and so much more! The lessons are endless. I feel blessed to have such a wonderful fur-baby in my life. I am grateful and appreciate Sasha.

She is a joy and a delight! I hope each of you have had someone like Sasha in your life.
