Sept brings 2 celebrations for us: our Anniversary & Cookie's birthday (always bittersweet without Butterz)! this year marked 11 for both of those. for us, it was Sept 15th and for Cookie it was Sept 22. i'm so glad to have both of these as my life! notice, they are not "part of" my life, but they ARE my life! it doesn't matter how many remote controls get destroyed, how many times someone pees in the house, or how much hockey gear gets strewn all over the place, i am so happy to have Nacho & Cookie - and i won't tell you who does which!
so Nacho & i spent our day in the most fitting way, doing what we love to do!
at the time, it was a bit unseasonably chilly here so i was afraid we were done for the season. but somebody somewhere likes us & not only did we get a little temp rise, but the water turned to perfect glass! it will most likely be my last run of the season, but it was worth it! the ride back home was just as nice!
this is how i like to end the season!
during all this time we were wrapped up in some pretty serious issues with Cookie. the short of it, she was showing signs so similar to Butterz final weeks that it scared us crazy. you are never ready to let them go, but i mean we REALLY were not ready. suffice it to say, she has pulled through. we don't know exactly what the cause was, other than she definitely had an infection & she is still on steroids, but we are glad to have her back at 98.9%. we will certainly take that. so it was actually a pretty big deal for us to take the break we did on our anniversary & head out. at any rate, she spent her birthday getting spoiled rotten with some relaxing beach time
and some ice cream
and she still rocks it like a 3 year old!
we do love our Cookers!
