The one wish of my heart growing up was a dog of my own. I finally got one after I got married (a two-year old Italian Greyhound). Our first Christmas card we dressed him up like a sheep. Our sheep dog has been with us through nearly all of our married life. The tips of his ears are turning white and he isn't as chipper but we love him still. When I started a blog my sheep dog became the mascot and the rest is history.
