3 Years old today! Wow... Where has the time gone! It seems like only yesterday when we drove up to meet you and you came bounding out of the kennel along with your 8 siblings! You # 9 of 9!!!

We had picked you from a photograph Lee had sent us (in our photos here on my corgi) but we wanted to bring Soffie up to meet you. It's always been a mystery to me how you instinctively knew that YOU were the chosen one. But you did! Soffie was very stand-off-ish but you were relentless!! You pursued her, coaxed her, challenged her, charmed her..... and at one point even did a back flip!! (you can see this in our My Guy video here on my corgi) You did it! You won her over!!

You had my (and Dawn's) heart right from the start. You pressed your little face up against ours when each of us picked you up for the first time. That sweet little face with the black splotch on your nose that gives you that crooked looking little expression. There was no way we could resist that face!

We had to wait 4 more weeks before we could go back and pick you up. That day was an adventure. You didn't like your crate too much at first but you settled down very quickly. We got stuck in traffic on I75. A brush fire had closed the highway. And you stayed very quiet during several hours of "creep and beep"! When we pulled off and waited in a rest area you and Soffie shared your first meal together. So cute eating your kibble from the top of a plastic take out container we had had lunch in earier that day.

You fit into our family like an old soul! You are our clown, our snuggler, our charmer and love bug!! And best of all you're Soffie's best friend!! But we knew that right from the start!!

Happy Birthday little boy!
