On this Thanksgiving Eve I am spending time with my family. Casey has over 100 toys in his toy box, but one is special. About five years ago, we took a trip to Minneapolis, MN to visit the Mall of America, the largest mall in the country. Of course both our jaws dropped when we walked in and took in the size of the place – it’s simply astounding!
There is a store at the mall that sells novelty items for pets. We found a unique toy for Casey – it’s a duck. When you squeeze it or drop it on the floor, it quacks – not just once but about three times in a row! Do you think we were crazy for buying it? Oh – probably, but it was for our Casey, so we had to get it!
I’ve kept scrapbooks for Casey like other moms keep scrapbooks for their children. Sometimes I joke around that this is actually Casey’s house and he’s just letting us hang around as part of his pack. He calls the shots and yes, I do believe he is just a little spoiled.
Every dog has their own unique personality and Casey is no exception. He knows how to push our buttons, that’s for sure. I hope we are blessed to have him around for a long time. We’ve had a couple of scares with cancer and some arthritis, but in people years he is over 80. I hope I’m doing as well as he is when I am 80+.
Thank You, Lord, for our Casey. He brings happiness into our lives. ❤
