happy birthday, blue

"Because of the dog’s joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift. It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born. What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass? What would this world be like without dogs?"

My sweet dog, Blue, turns 14 today.  She has been a steadfast friend & teacher to me over the years.  
Really, she is the physical embodiment of joy & love.  How lucky am I to have such a bright soul in my midst?!
