Happy Birthday to The Happy Heathen of Shepherd's Way

March 21, 2016

Today was the Heathen’s first birthday. I had a Dr appt in town, so we did a little bit of celebrating yesterday and today he got a plain doughnut in lieu of a cake. After running around and getting all our errands done, we took him to Texas Roadhouse for a steak dinner. Unfortunately, TheMan would not let me take him inside, so he didn’t have the pleasure of having all the wait-staff sing Happy Birthday to him, but I did get a steak just a little bigger than what I could eat and he got the left overs.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HEATH! You had some big paw prints to fill, after my dear, sweet Cider passed on, and  you have done it admirably. The huge gaping wound in my heart has healed and been filled and you have brought me laughter, even on some of the most desolate feeling and almost unbearably painful days. Every step of the way has been pure joy and you have taught me, as much as I have taught you.


  1. By the way, I miss your posts. A smile spreads across my face when I see a new post from you.

    1. Thank you Anne! I have been remiss in my blogging this year. It's been a bit of a roller coaster and I seem to always be a bit behind haha! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and say hello!

  2. This is a beautiful tribute to your wonderful dog! Who knew your Heathen would bring you such joy? :)

  3. Happy Birthday Big Boy Heath. Thank You for your love and devotion to Kim. Good Boy. :)

  4. You can just see in his eyes that he would do anything for you!!! Happy Birthday Heath!!!
