Growing Pains

Yesterday I received so many nice comments on Eko’s birthday post.  We appreciated all the well wishes and compliments – but luckily I also have people in my life who keep me grounded.  Family and close friends were quick to remind me that I left out an important era of the past two years – Eko’s trouble making phase!

There, the truth is out!  But of course as we all know, pets are about much more than just the cute times.  We may lose shoes, brushes or even doors, but the perspective we gain about what is important in life in invaluable!
