Keep Calm & Happy Birthday!

Blog Give Back My Dog My Organic Life



I really really REALLY enjoy my birthday.  Not only does it mark off the first of one of my favorite months of the year, it’s me and Raelie’s 4 year Anniversary of adopting each other!

Her Rescue Story is actually pretty beautiful: Raelie’s Pitbull Dog Mom was pregnant and was abandoned at a Kill Shelter.  After a few weeks, she was scheduled to be put down.

Little Shelter, a no-kill shelter on Long Island ( I recommend them whole-heartedly), was informed that this precious pregnant pitbull was going to be killed, and they swooped in and rescued her.


The next day (!!) Raelie’s mom gave birth to her and 8 other pit/lab mixes that were put up for adoption after their Mom was fostered out.  Why this is important is that if she had given birth at the Kill Shelter, herself and all of the puppies would have been immediately put down. 🙁  Had they waited another day to rescue, it would have been too late.


After going to see her and picking her out in August, I was waiting for approval for quite awhile.  Then, Little Shelter called me on August 31st and asked me if I could come pick her up the next day, which just happened to be my birthday!

Don’t mind if I do!

I can’t believe I brought this little munchkin home 4 years ago today.  She’s changed absolutely every aspect of my life in the best way possible.  I am so grateful to have her.

Raelie, you’re the best dog daughter a human could ask for.

Time flies when your whole lives together are kisses and cuddles. 😉

I want one thing and one thing only this year: to make my dreams come true.
