I am thankful for everyday Braxton is still with us. He is getting old, he's 13 now and he is pretty tired... and grey in the face but we love him. He's a retired bird dog and other than a few accidents in the house now and then he is an amazing pal. He came to me as Critter's dog and as Critter will tell you he is now a Mama's boy. I have to admit he pretty much is. Animals are special companions and great friends. I love him and I am thankful for his unconditional love everyday.
