I drove 180 miles round trip today because I missed my man.
No… not my human. Though I miss Ben while I’m away for work also.
But mostly, I drove home in between four night shifts in a row because I missed Copper. Got home at 9am, slept for 5 hours, woke up to him barking demanding to get on the bed with me. Got ready, drove back to work to be on time @ 7pm. Crazy, I know. But we leave for Alaska on Wednesday and I’m missing Copper already just knowing I’ll be several states away.
I don’t know how it’s possible to love an animal so much. Maybe I’ll have a child some day and love that kid more than Copper. But for now, as it has for 11 years and 9 months, my life still revolves around this 21 pound fluffy ball of personality, intelligence, stubbornness, sass, attitude, loyalty and love.
All of the pictures above were taken within the past two months. My little bean is still my very best friend and is healthy, happy and even a bit active at times 😉
