Happy Birthday Campy!!


Campy,
You have been with us for 2 years and today we celebrate your 3rd birthday here on Earth. We aren't quite sure what happened to you when you were born and why you ended up on the street, but we are grateful that you were found behind a building and finally rescued. Not knowing what we were getting ourselves into when we found you on Petfinder.com, we couldn't resist this dog named "Sparky" and his long, long legs and cute, cuddly face. Turns out, you have changed our life. We wake up every morning excited to start the day and coming home from work is always a happy time for us. Seeing your expression when we walk through the front door, and hearing you from our 3rd floor bedroom window, is absolutely priceless. You'd think after 2 years you would get tired of jumping up and down and kissing us when we come home but of course not. You remind us every day how much you love us and how thankful you are to have a roof over your head, a yummy meal twice a day and a freshly made bed to sleep in every night.
Every day is the same for you, yet you wake up every morning loving life and wanting to make the most of a brand new day. A new day to do everything the same as yesterday but with no less energy than the day before. Every day is an adventure for you and we often remind ourselves that we can't take life for granted. We only have one life and we must make the most of it.
Campy, if you only knew how much you have changed our life. I suppose we can only show you with affection and lots of love but we just want you to know that you are the best thing that ever happened to us. Nothing seems to bother you and the worst day of your life is when we leave you alone. You make it very clear that you don't care what we do as long as you are with us. You never complain during car trips and you always seem to brighten our spirits when our day just doesn't seem to go as planned. Somehow, you always seem to remind us that there is always tomorrow....always another day to wake up feeling fresh and ready to make the most out of life.
We love you Campy and we can't wait to celebrate many, many, many more birthdays.
Love, Marni and Karel (your mommy and daddy)
