Celebrating Our Fifth Year Together

For those of you long-time blog readers, you might remember when I first brought Milo home, back in 2011, Milo came to live with me. He was just 10 weeks old. While Canada celebrates Remembrance Day and our American friends celebrate Veterans’ Day, I also remember the day I picked up sweet Milo. He has changed my life in so many ways!
