The balloons died, but for some reason they are still hanging around on the dining room table. I like a little birthday aftermath to hang around for a while and we can still be festive because our fat, wrinkled bull turned 3 today. I cannot believe this 52 lb. lap dog has been around that long. I also know that in these three short years he has changed my life. I honestly don't know what I would do without this dog around. I am so lucky to have such a sweet bulldog in my life. When we are gone for a weekend or longer we miss him and we even brought Odin a toy from Portland. Getting home to this wiggly dog makes my day, and his snoring has become my white noise at night. Are you this attached to your pets?
