My best friend.

My best friend. She is a pit bull. But she is so much more- She is the other half of my heart.

Today is Valkyrie's gotcha-day. I don't normally celebrate this day since I know her exact birthday.  Nine years ago I took a really crazy adventure to pick up Valkyrie. She completed my heart when I met her. I wasn't exactly in a good place in my life then. I certainly wasn't in a good place to be getting a second dog, a puppy no less. But as soon as I met Valkyrie I knew we were meant to be together forever. We have been through so many tough times together. And we've been through good times too. Every moment of joy or sadness over the past nine years Valkyrie has been there with me. She is my heart. My constant companion.

"If you're alone, I'll be your shadow.  If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder.  If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow.  If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile.  But anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me. "

Beautiful girl.

“Some dogs come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave pawprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.”


"My little dog - a heartbeat at my feet." 


Unconditional love.
