Happy birthday to Cabana! At four, she continues to be a fantastic dog. She is healthy, laidback, and a complete pleasure to be around. My life today would look totally different without her. It is no exaggeration to say she has changed my life completely.
Because of Cabana, I exercise much more regularly. Instead of being a driven workaholic, I take more time to relax and play (although there's still room for improvement here). I have made many friends that I'd never have met without Cabana. And I have a great sense of accomplishment and purpose in my volunteer work at the animal shelter.
Happy birthday, Cabana. You have enriched my life and turned me into a crazy dog person. Maybe by the time you're 5, I'll consider that a compliment.
