11 YEARS OLD TODAY

“Golden retrievers are not bred to be guard dogs, and considering the size of their hearts and their irrepressible joy in life, they are less likely to bite than to bark, less likely to bark than to lick a hand in greeting. In spite of their size, they think they are lap dogs, and in spite of being dogs, they think they are also human, and nearly every human they meet is judged to have the potential to be a boon companion who might, at any moment, cry, “Let’s go!” and lead them on a great adventure.”

― Dean Koontz

“After years of having a dog, you know him. You know the meaning of his snuffs and grunts and barks. Every twitch of the ears is a question or statement, every wag of the tail is an exclamation.”
― Robert McCammon, Boy’s Life

Dear Paddington

The years have passed far too quickly my boy.  Only yesterday you were a mischievous young pup and today we celebrate your 11th birthday.

Happy Birthday you big clown, I love you more than you will ever know…
