Happy 14th Birthday, Jonah!

Holy wow: this is a post I never anticipated having the opportunity to create. Bernese Mountain Dogs' lifespan typically caps at 10 years. This gentle giant of mine is a whopping FOURTEEN today. He is everything one could ask for in a dog: loyal, loving, and a non-slobberer. :) He has gotten me through some very dark days. Still does. And every morning I delight that he is still among us, to grace us with his kind soul. I am hopeful for many more days with him. We'll see... Happy weekend, All. xo ~Joy

When you come back from the dead
And you stare through my window
I'll pretend you're never there
I'll pretend we are shadows
We are shadows

There'll come a day, I'll let you in
Wash you down, dress you in my clothes
Lay your head on my pillow
Lay your head on my own
On my own

We are growing up together
We are growing old together
We are growing old
We are growing up together
We are growing old together
We are growing old

They said you wouldn't be sitting here
On your own
On your own
They said you wouldn't be sitting here
On your own
On your own

When the storm closes to you
And the wind shakes your body
I'll admit you're not alone
I'll admit you're never alone
You're not alone

They said you wouldn't be sitting here
On your own
On your own
They said you wouldn't be sitting here
On your own
On your own

We are growing up together
We are growing old together
We are growing old..
