I wrote the following 2 year’s ago on Hudson’s 5th birthday and I still have the same feelings but somehow they are even more true.
“It is hard to describe what happens between a boy or a man and his dog. Especially when one comes along that is of a kindred spirit having a love for the outdoors. Hudson was truly a gift to our family. I thank God daily for what Hudson has become for me...a buddy. He loves to go on hikes, even if its just around the block. He has become a companion and is always near me around the house. He is a listening ear and a calming force. A big happy, wiggle butt dancing greeter when I come home, always with a gift to give me, one of his own toys, which exemplifies his giving heart. So on his 5th (now 7th!!) birthday today, I celebrate his life. I give thanks for him once again and say..."Happy Birthday buddy, Happy Birthday!!” - [ ]
