Happy Birthday, Sweet Dear Biscuit!
Tomorrow is Biscuit’s birthday. He would have been twelve-years-old presuming his age was accurate when we rescued him. However, it is very likely he was older. We made August 8th Biscuit’s birthday as it was the day Biscuit was rescued off the streets in North Carolina where he was then taken to the Sheltie Haven Sheltie Rescue, Inc. We rescued Biscuit from this rescue organization on January 7, 2011.
We celebrated Biscuit’s birthday in Nova Scotia during the summers of 2011 and 2012; and in 2013, we spent our last vacation together in Manchester, Vermont. We had a wonderful time together. Doug and I have many wonderful memories of our summer vacations together with Biscuit. We know that Biscuit will be with us in spirit during our vacation this year with Victory.
Whenever I see a rainbow, I think of Biscuit. Earlier this week after a good rain, the most beautiful and grand rainbow appeared over the geographic area where we previously lived with Biscuit. We immediately thought of Biscuit.
Below is one of our favorite images of our beloved Biscuit taken in Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. He was so happy and he looked so handsome.
Biscuit, we hope that you have a wonderful birthday! We hope that you are running on the beach with your sheltie furs blowing in the wind — a lovely and lasting image and memory that I will always cherish! You are always and forever in our hearts, our sweet dear Biscuit. Thank you for the many gifts you gave to us. We love you and miss you very much. Happy Birthday!
