Christmas Day is significant in our family not only because it is a holiday but also because it is our youngest family member's birthday. Kuma turned 3 years old. I can't believe it!
To mark the occasion, I got Kuma a boxed set of stuffed dog toys and he thoroughly enjoyed them as well as reminding us why we don't buy them more often. Stuffing everywhere!
And here he is cuddling with Jadyn's Build a Bear dogs, technically Golden Retrievers but she has named them Zuma and Buma because they look so much like Kuma:
Our friends Cruz and Tara have recently suffered great losses when it comes to their furbabies and it has served as a sober reminder to cherish the time we have with our furry companions. They give us unconditional love and devotion and add so much joy to our family.
I wish I could articulate the importance Kuma played in helping me through a particularly difficult time in my life personally but suffice to say, we are very blessed to have him as part of our family.
Happy birthday Kuma!
