February Favorites: Layla

I would be remiss if I did not include my best doggie friend in my February favorites. She is always my favorite, not just in February, but today is her birthday so I’m honoring her on her special day. Today she is seven years young and still the cutest doggie I’ve ever met. To celebrate, I picked up some Frosty Paws treats for her and a Carvel ice cream cake for The Husband and me.

I’ve written before about how much I love her, so this may be repetitive. Sorry for that – but she really is one of the best things in my life, especially when dealing with the grief of three pregnancy losses. I don’t know what I would have done without her after each of my losses.  So, I’m just going to share some of my favorite pictures of her (I have over 800 on my computer so it’s going to be tough choosing.) Thank you for being the best dog and bringing us a lot of love and happiness, even when it seemed like everything was wrong and nothing would ever be right again.

So good on car rides… car rides = sleep

    SUCH a cutie. Dogs are really the best, aren’t they? No better snugglers / shoulders to cry on in the world. Love all the sweet pictures of yours!

    She is adorable! Pets are amazing especially during tough times. I feel the exact same way about my dog. She has been through everything with us and provided us with so much comfort.

  9. Happy birthday! My brother’s dog has almost the same name. SB adores her – and fortunately she’s the most patient dog ever.
    Now enjoy some cuddles 🙂
