We got Stogie together when she was just 2 months old but I still melted when I saw this. I suppose I would change it to be from her to the baby saying "OK you can be in the family as long as you know I was their first baby"
I will carry you in my heart and mind all the days of my life until one day, I too will cross over to Rainbow Bridge and gleefully join you there, our youth and vigor restored, never ever to part for all eternity~
The couch, the chairs, the floor, the new pair of black pants that you decided to wear to school that day and didn't notice that they were covered in dog fur until it was too late and you were sitting there, in the middle of class, with chunks of fluff all over your legs and couldn't do anything about it. Ah, fun times.
