Today is our buddy’s 9th birthday. I can’t believe the little man is 9 already. He came to us when he was just 6 weeks old. He was very young, very feisty, curious, strong willed, and very loving. Not much about him has changed since then. He’s brought so much joy to us, so much laughter and love. He’s the best dog thief you’ve ever seen, a total rascal, tenacious, and can be out and out stubborn. As we like to say he is the Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde of dogs. So loving and affectionate one minute, guarding his bully, or a kleenex he stole, with ferocity the next.
I didn’t know I could love a dog this much. It slays me every day, the love I have for him. I think that love is only bested by the love he has for me.
Nine years. Wow. Happy birthday little man. Here’s to many more adventures together.
