Has it been 5 years already?

Our first header

Well, it 5 years ago today that we started the 24 Paws of Love blog.  I can not believe it has been that long ago.  So much has changed.  So much has remained the same.  There is not a day that goes by when I don't feel the love that I felt right from the beginning.  The love that we have with the 24 Paws of Love just keeps getting stronger and more real and I am so grateful for our family of paws.  I know they were all sent from heave above.  There is no doubt about it.  

We decided to repost our first post (below), at this time it is the thing to do.  With Daddy Dog Brut passing away in the last two weeks, I am still beside myself and words don't come easy.

Well, with that I want to thank our 340 Followers for being there with us.  Also thank you to all my Facebook Friends that have helped me through this low point of the 24 Paws of Love.  As we enter into a new chapter of our life without Brut, we dedicate this new phase of our life to him and his spirit that is all around us.  

Thank you friends.

My wife, asked me how I wanted to start out the first post of our dog blog. She was at a loss for ideas. (Not surprisingly because she has done all the blog work so far.)

All I know is what I witnessed when Brut and Silver had their first and last litter of puppies on Jan. 2, 2008 was nothing short of (lost for words) Never in my life have I ever experienced or witnessed, read or seen in any movie what began at 2:50 am when Zappa was born and continued through until Fiona was the last one out. When Fiona was stuck and I pulled her out, I was overjoyed that she was OK.

It is a high that I still have to this day. An amazing miracle of God. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about that night. It changed me in a way that I’ll never look at life the same. I thought I knew what unconditional love was before, but what I have witnessed since that night has made me a different person. It changed my whole outlook on humans, animals, simply everything. When we got Blaze and Chance back, it made me realize how short and precious life really is.

I hope this blog will be able to show and tell even half of what my wife and I want to express to people that think dogs are just dogs. Believe me my friends, dogs are much more. If you pay attention to the dogs around you, they can teach you more than you ever thought possible about yourself, the people around you and what life is really about.-Mark

Our goal is not so much to share how much we love our dogs, but how much their love means to us. In a world that is full of cruelty, sorrow and pain, there is nothing better than having 24 Paws of Love. -Patty

Please check out each dog’s story, (link name under picture) and share in the unconditional love they each bring.

Blessings on your 5th blogiversary. It was a fitting idea to repost your first piece. Not the least of which because it shows what a great team you and your husband (and all the paws) are.
