This is the story of life with my two dogs.
Lightning was adopted as a puppy from a PetSmart pet adoption event when we stopped there to buy food for our Golden Retriever. Thumper had been found in bad shape by a local rescue organization. After a couple months of recuperation, his foster family took him to pet adoption day, where I saw him while shopping at the local PetSmart for dog food. Maybe I should sign up for Petflow instead.....
Today is Lightning's birthday. He is 5 years old. To celebrate, we're going to show some of his baby pictures. :-)
It seems like just yesterday that my son found this tiny little puppy and couldn't live without him. He was adorable....
and he loved to nap on his boy's shoulder.
Now he's all grown up, he no longer naps on our shoulders (thank goodness - he turned out to be rather large!), and some time during this first year, his ears went all funky. I still think he's adorable.
So, Happy Birthday Lightning!
There's an extra treat for him tonight (peanut butter!).
