My first born. The creature that has & continues to fill our hearts with so much love & laughter is about to turn NINE YEARS OLD! 💙
Doug surprised me with her in 2008. I remember it PERFECTLY. I was at my computer taking an online test for college & Doug just got home from running errands. He was desperately trying to get me to turn around & look at him, but I was “in the zone.” When he finally caught my attention & told me turn around, I saw him holding the most adorable, small, copper colored fluff ball! I remember dropping my books, my pencil & my jaw!
K: “WHAT IS THAT?!”
D: “It’s a puppy…?”
K: “Oh my gosh! Can we keep it?!”
D: “No. I just brought her home to torture you. Yes, she is ours.”
K: “OH. MY. GOSH!” Love. I fell in love with her the moment I saw her. Naming her was pretty easy too. She looked exactly like the corduroy bear from the children’s books. “Corduroy,” was a little much, so I shortened it to “Cordy.” She is precious. She is so smart, loving, & motherly. She’s the most easygoing dog EVER & does her thing. She thinks the other dogs & cats are her puppies. Heck, she thinks I AM her puppy! When she wants love, she comes & let’s you know. When she is done, she finds a spot to park it on the floor.
She’s HILARIOUS! She climbed up Doug’s mom’s end table & took a nap. When we would go to my parent’s house, we brought a rawhide with us & she would go upstairs to hide it in my mom’s bedroom throw pillows! 😂 Doug found a rawhide in his luggage on our honeymoon! Every-single-time I come home from the hospital, she is so gentle while checking me out to make sure I’m okay. When I’m feeling super ill, she stays close. She loves to do tricks for treats & is kind of a show off. She’s alpha & keeps the other two in check. She greets you at the door ready to love you.
She is amazing & these past nine years have been beautiful! She had BETTER stick around for a good long time still! She’s part of my heart. ❤🐾
