Dear Firefly,

You are the gentlest, sweetest, smartest dog on the planet! Every day, I marvel at all the things you understand – especially because your little brother and cousin are such lovable airheads.

You know to stop right inside the door if you’ve pooped so we can check you. You know that Little Brother needs his ears cleaned every morning. You know that it’s your duty to check on everyone throughout the day. You know so many words, it always amazes me. By the way, you look so great after your recent weight loss!

I don’t know if you know this, but sometimes you have seizures. When that happens, you fall over and shake for a long time. It is the scariest thing in the world and your Mommy and I cry for a long time afterwards. But even in the middle of your seizures, you try and stand up to show us that you are okay. You are such a sweetheart, always concerned about your family.

Every evening, when I am in my room doing homework, I love to hear your nails clicking on the floor. I look up from my books and there you are, staring at me. When I say hi and tell you what I am doing, you nod and walk away, satisfied that I am fine.

I love my own dog so very much, but he and I would not be who we are without you, Baby Girl. You are the best caregiver and watchdog – and you have the fuzziest head I have ever seen. I do not know if these seizures will impact the length of your life, so I cherish every minute I have with you.

I love you so much, Firefly!

Breed: Shetland Sheepdog
