a year of blog, a year of dog
It’s also been exactly one year since I started this blog. Both experiences have brought me a long way, and have taught me things that I didn’t know I needed to learn. For the 2,000-odd visits, emails, comments, and most importantly, conversations, surrounding this blog, I owe immeasurable gratitude to all of you.
And as for puppy, it’s hard to describe in words the laughs, the joys, the exasperation, the frustration, and the love of raising your first puppy… so I’ll do it in pictures instead :).

Sawra is the Aramaic word for “hope.” Here’s to puppy and the hope of things yet to come.
Happy birthday, puppy!
