Happy Birthday, Biscuit
Today is Biscuit’s birthday. He would have been fourteen-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, and we enjoyed a wonderful two and a half years together.
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 is always with us in spirit.
Whenever I see a rainbow, I think of Biscuit. We have seen several rainbows, including a double rainbow, and, each time, we immediately thought of Biscuit. In fact, we saw a rainbow just last week after a heavy rain.
Below is one of my favorite images of Biscuit and Doug taken on the beach in Hubbards, Nova Scotia.
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, everlasting gifts you gave to us. We love you and miss you very much. Happy Birthday!
