Life Lesson #4

FAMILIES come in many forms.

Mom, Tutu (Mom's Mom) Deborah & Dana
with me & Due in Central Park. Fall 2009

If you're very lucky - you have several families.
The one you were born into.
The ones that you create.
Mom and I are very lucky!

We love our "real" family -
but we don't know what we'd do without our "created" family.
So here's to Due, and his peeps, Tom & Deborah, and of course to Aunt Dana.
You ARE my family - and that makes me one lucky pup!
(Mom feels the same I can assure you).

We can never have too much love in our lives. That's what family means to me and that's what I see in the photo: Abbey, with those who love her.

This is simply wonderful. Thank you for saying it so perfectly and clearly.

P.S. My word verification tonight was "chien," Spanish for dog.

Absolutely! Families are born, and by choice...after all, I adopted my Momma & Dad! Love is the answer, regardless ~ Rex
