Ten years ago today - October 21, 2000 - Princess came to live with me. I picked her up about 9:00 a.m., she jumped happily in my car and never looked back. We spent the afternoon playing in the back yard, raking leaves, with friends dropping by to meet her. They pronounced us perfect for each other. We were - and still are - very much alike: loving, independent and strong-willed. Now a senior citizen, Princess often comes to work with me, as she did today. She is friendly, but not pushy; never barks at anyone but happily greets our guests, her little stub of a tail wagging. People love her. When the vet checked her over last week, she commented that Princess looks about half her age. (I wish the same could be said of me!) She is a wonderful companion and SOOOO very loved. Happy 10th anniversary, my sweet girl.
