WARNING!!! This could get mushy...

Happy birthday, baby girl!

It's hard to believe it's been almost three years since you tumbled into my life. I wasn't looking for a dog. Neither was Daddy. But someone was stupid enough to give up a lifetime of smiles, kisses, cuddles and hugs from you and thank God my neighbor was the one to rescue you and bring you home with her. You were so cute, just 6-7 weeks old, so tiny and fuzzy. Look at you!


You'd follow me wherever I ran. You played with me and with Daddy. You stole everyone's hearts - even old Uncle Sherman Kitty's. How could you not with those eyes?


When you came to live with me, you changed my life completely. I couldn't wait to get home from work to see your happy little face. I even manipulated my plans with friends so that they could come over and hang out with us, so I wouldn't have to leave you. Who could willingly leave such a sweet girl?


Don't get me wrong, Sam. I've loved before. But I never knew love could run this deep. You're more than just a "faithful companion", though you are that too. You're my best friend. You make my life so much happier. You listen to me when I need to vent. You cuddle with me after hard days. You kiss away my tears - not even Daddy does that! :) I love you so much, I can't even justify it with words. None of them seem to come anywhere close to describing how I feel for you. I love everything about you - your beautiful eyes, your velvet ears, your silly little "boofs" when someone walks out front of your house, the way you turn your head when I say something to you, how you always come to bed with me at night. I love how sweet you are. I love that God sent you to me and I thank Him every night. Without you, my life would be so different and not for the better. You add so much into my life - and Daddy's, even though he doesn't get mushy like this. Everyone loves you - Grandmommy, Granddaddy, Uncle Robbie... and this baby that we're going to have, s/he'll love you too.

If I had one more wish to ask, it would be that you could stay with me forever. Dogs have one fault - they don't live long enough. I cannot imagine life without you, Samantha. And even though it's a loooooooooooong way off, know now that when your time comes to leave me, I will never be the same. Hell, I'm tearing up just thinking about it right now. BUT IT'S NOT A SAD DAY! It's your birthday! So I'll stop crying and work hard so that I can get home and be with you and play with you and cuddle with you and treat you as exactly what you are - the best dog in the history of the world!!!

I love you, Samantha. Thank you for everything.

Mommy <3

Happy birthday Samantha. I loved all the pictures Jamie, very cute. I couldn't stop looking at her eyes though. I don't know what it is about them I can just get lost in her eyes.

Happy birthday, Samantha!!! Its so beautiful what you wrote for her...........

Happy Birthday Samantha. I am so glad you found such a loving home.

Jaime, that was beautiful. I know you said it was impossible to really put your love and your feelings into words, but you did as well as written vocabulary allows, and I am sure that we can imagine the rest by looking into Samantha's beautiful expressive eyes.

Samantha, there was never a dog more loved than you! I know Mommy is going to make this evening as special as she can for you. You give Mommy smiles and laughter, you preserve her sanity on days when other humans and happenings threaten to drive her nuts. There's always your gentle and understanding love to come home to, your goofy clowning to make her laugh and your warm and genuine kisses to sooth her soul. Happy Happy Birthday to a most special little girl, beautiful Samantha!

Thank you all so much for your sweet replies. It means so much for me to express myself to other people who understand how I feel. :) For her birthday tomorrow, Samantha is getting groomed and then we're going to PetSmart. I don't know what we'll do for dinner, but it'll be something she likes and then we'll go get a snowball - she loves them! :)

Thanks again for the responses. It really means a lot that you all "get" how special my girl is. :)

Well, the day isn't over yet but I think Samantha had a pretty good birthday! She got to go bye-byes in the car, she got a raised dish set so she doesn't have to lean over so far to eat, she got two stuffed animals, she had a beauty appointment, and then had a couple bites of pizza AND a Frosty Paws (the new peanut butter flavor)! I had said that we were going to get a snowball but the pizza delivery guy took his sweet time getting here and the place was about to close so we'll hit there tomorrow. To make up for not getting her a snowball (she LOOOOOVES snowballs), I also got cupcake mix and I'll make her some Funfetti cupcakes tomorrow. (Don't worry, she'll have one - the rest are for me! :o)

Thanks again for all the nice things everyone said. Me and my birthday girl appreciate it!
