What do you miss?
When I first saw this prompt a million things ran through my head because when you live abroad there are many, many, MANY things that you end up missing. When I thought about what I have sighed over the most the answer was easy, my fur baby.
My pretty little puppy is now 7 years old and I have had her in my life since I was 20. I was Gidget's third owner in a year and took over her care when a couple of my friends had to get rid of her. I was a little dubious about owning a dog since I had considered myself a cat person, but I couldn't bear to let her go to a shelter since no one else had stepped forward to take her.
So Gidget came to live with me and the rest is history. I gave her the pretty middle name of Marie, slept in the same bed, and bought her any Halloween costume that I thought she absolutely needed. I love my baby so much, and Gidget was even the deciding factor in me realizing that there might be something worth exploring when I had just started dating, Rich, my husband. He once walked her in her lobster Halloween costume because it was the warmest thing he could find on a freezing winter day. He did this in full uniform and on the busiest street in town. Yea, he won me over with that one.

Gidget was a shy little thing that was frightened of nearly everything and had been bullied by bigger dogs until I got her. I did my best to rehabilitate her, (think a sassier version of Cesar Milan) loved her and apparently she took on my personality. After a short time with me Gidget became known as the "forest warrior" at the dog park. I love my baby and I can't wait until I get to see her everyday.

It's been too long since I have gotten to see my dog's pretty furry face and I can't tell you how much I miss her. Now that you know what I miss the most what do you miss the most? Is there a particular thing that you just wouldn't be able to do without?
