Happy Birthday Simba; My Promise

Today, Simba, my best friend turns 11. She has been by my side every second my life’s greatest and the worst moments since she entered it. Always loving me unconditionally. It doesn’t matter my mood, she is always there full of love and patience.  If all humans had a heart like hers, what a wonderful world this would be.  I don’t mind the dirty paw-prints on the floor and on me, hair everywhere, the wet kisses on my face, destruction of furniture, walls, and carpet, because they have been outweighed by all the good companionship, laughs and giggles she has brought me.  I want to take this opportunity to share the promise I made to this exceptional creature of nature.


I will never hurt you or let anyone else hurt you

I will never let you starve before I starve

I will never drop you off in a shelter and leave

I will never move and not take you with me

I will never leave you tied up outside because you’re family

I will never desert you when you are old

I will never lose patience when you’re trying to communicate through unwanted behavior

I will never stop loving you even when you get all gray and slow down.

I promise to hold you and love you as long as our lives allow.


Spread the love

About Simba's Mom

I was born and raised in California, lived in Pennsylvania for several years, and have recently moved to Delaware. I have gone from being a teacher for 20 years to a blogger and now back to teaching but still blogging. I have a great dog named Simba. Simba is a German Shorthaired Pointer. Life with Simba is an adventure every day. I have had dogs my entire life but I have learned most about dogs living with Simba. German Shorthaired Pointers really do become your best friend. They become extremely attached and that is why they say they have the Velcro phenomenon. Simba now has a sister 8 years younger and her name is Gypsy.
