today, atlas is 9, so i am wishing a happy birthday to my dear little puppy.
i love him more than the sun, moon, and stars.
i love him times a million and forty seven and thirty three. (that's today's number. i make up a new number for him every day.)
he is the best four-legged friend a girl could have, and i am grateful for every single day i get to spend with him.
(insert a pause as i get up from my chair and give him a kiss on the nose, because he is watching me with an eagle eye as i sniffle away while typing.)
today, i am full of love for atlas, and i am full of love for all dogs. our world really is better because they are in it.
