Craig, today is Misty's 3rd birthday! This is a recent picture of her. She is beautiful dog and not just in looks but she has a wonderful demeanor. Such a loving dog. Remember when we brought her home? You came up with her great name.
We look after Brett & Jessie's 2 babies often. We have his 2.5 month old daughter, Lyla on Tuesdays and Reon who is now 15 months old on Thursdays. Misty just loves them both.
She goes to Lyla and tries to lick her face when she is lying down on the floor (we prevent that though). Misty just loves her and those two will be great friends as Lyla grows up.
With Reon, Misty just follows him everywhere he goes. Reon is walking now (he started walking at 9.5 months old) and Misty will try to lick him often and sometimes knocks the little guy over onto his butt on the carpet just from too much love but of course, never hurting him. Misty still loves her tennis balls to play with (I bring one home after playing tennis with Rich every Wednesday) and Reon knows how to pick up the ball and throw it for Misty. Reon is left handed. I think the only lefties in my side of the family is Charles (my oldest brother). Misty and Reon will also be best of friends as Reon grows up with her.
When the children are having a nap we have a monitor in their room so we know when they are awake. Misty will hear the babies cry and start whimpering and wanting to run upstairs to their room. He loves those 2 children, as do all of us of course.
Oh, and since we think of you daily, once in a while I will say to Misty "Misty, Craig may be coming today" and she will jump up on the back of the couch looking at the kitchen/garage door waiting for you to come home. She still remembers your name. She still loves you. As do we all.
