I found this draft that I had started to write to Nimbus back on 1/30/2011
You may have guessed by now that we are not your biological parents. Although since we have had you since you were 21 days old I’m not exactly sure what you think.
We never had a puppy so young and like most new parents I’m sure we made mistakes. We weren’t even looking for a dog, never mind a puppy, never mind a puppy that had to be bottle fed and taught how to poop, and oh my god why didn’t anyone tell us that little puppies have full grown sized tongues. Or at least that was the way it seemed back then. We used to laugh that you had a cows tongue back when you had no teeth and would suck on our fingers, or our noses when we held you up to our faces.
We had no idea what you were or would grow up to be —besides a dog. We didn’t care, whatever you turned out to be was just fine was us. You were 3 pounds when we got you, today you are 105.
