Every Dog Has His Day

Our family is celebrating yet ANOTHER birthday today!

It's the birthday of a very special man in our family.

He is the best friend that anyone could have.  He loves everyone and lets little children sit on him and pull on him without ever growing tired of it. He has seen various cats and dogs come and go in our home, but he's STILL THE MAN!!

Seems like it was just yesterday that he was this size.

And now he is 56 years old today!

( people years, that is!)

Happy 8th Birthday, Champ!  We love you very much!

How cute!!!

Champ looks so much like my son and daughter in law's boxer, Chopper. He was the sweet little dog they had to have put to sleep before he was a year old. Very sad for all of us.

Wow! 56 years old. :) What a blessing he must be to all of you.

Happy Birthday CHAMP!
