Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 19th day of January, 2014.

Today is a celebration for me and Alvin …. it marks our fourth year together and his fifth birthday.

I cannot believe it.

I also cannot believe my life without him.

I miss him when we are apart for longer than a day (which has not been often).

When I adopted him, no one had any idea of his exact age – his birthdate.

So I think it is only appropriate to celebrate his birth and our time together all on the same day

He is my companion, my friend, and “my son.”

We have come so far….. our first month or so together was rocky.

But we adjusted.

They are just like having a child with the difference being they can stay alone for a time.

He makes me laugh.

He stands guard when I am in the bathroom (not sure why).

He loves to climb on the snowbanks.

He loves to bury his nose in the snow.

He loves to dig a maze through the snow drifts.

He loves his sister, his brother-in-law and of course, Elton and Penny.

He loves everyone …..

He loves to walk.

He loves to eat …..

His favourite treats are: carrots, broccoli and cauliflower and pea pods.

He is smart and fun.

He is so cute (I think so).

So Alvin, on your special day … on our special day ….. Thank you for being here every night when I get home from work.

Thank you for always being happy to see me.  Thank you for being the best puppy “dog” a person could wish for and more.

Special Hello to:  all those beings with birthdays today…. Happy Birthday.

Always, Carol and Alvin
