Happy Birthday, birthday boy, er, dog

Yesterday was this little boy's 8th birthday.

1st professional bath - 1 year old.

A year ago February we had a bit of a scare and weren't sure he was going to make it to 7 let alone 8.  What we thought was a normal Friday evening turned in to a trip to the emergency vet then a trip to Cornell where we found out Odin has an enlarged heart and atrial fibrilation.  Talk about a scary (and expensive) weekend.  We're so lucky to have him and love him to pieces - even when he's randomly barking at a cat or chipmunk, poaching food off the counter, kicking us in our sleep when he's on our bed, stealing food from his little 2-legged sister and hogging the couch.

Happy Birthday to our 4-legged baby!


  1. Aaaw, he is gorgeous! And the size of a pony!!!! What a monkey giving you such fright, though. Hoping he's - if not cured - much better.

    P.S. Do you know you're a no-reply blogger? I can't reply direct to your blog comment about Dee visiting. Just FYI! Honest I'm not being rude...
