Our little girl is 5 years old today.

Here she is on her first day home...

one of the first images we saw of her the summer of 2004

the first time we met her, she was four weeks old...

Playing with her best buddy, Pumpkin, this afternoon...

She is rarely far from my side...

and adores our kitty Phranq who is 15 this summer

And dear old Jake is still going strong too at 14!

Lola is my sunshine!
