Happy birthday, Minibella!

On May 26th, 2008, I introduced my blog readers to the new addition to the Stacey family.

Now she’s eight years old and still beloved by her humans and adored by her “little” brother.

She was so tiny on that big couch all by herself! Over the years, though, she’s learned to appropriate all pillows, fleece throws and as many of her dad’s sweaters as she can and now my couch is just a six-foot-long frou-frou dog nest.
