Today this sweet girl turned 18 years old. That's old enough to buy a pack of smokes and a lotto ticket. This is my childhood dog, given to me for Valentine's Day in 6th grade. She has been through every milestone, boyfriend, and memory since that time. She's been sailing, camping, roadtripping, flying, and everything else. It's amazing to have a wonderful companion for this long, and also bittersweet because I know she is aging. I love you SugarBear! Happy 18th birthday! We are celebrating you today girl.
