Happy Birthday!

Approximately* 8 years ago today, my precious little man came into this world. 10 weeks later I walked into the Greenville, SC humane society and saw his bright blue eyes in the puppy room, and instantly fell deeply in love.

We've lived in South Carolina, Mexico, San Francisco, CA, and now Chicago. He has taken 3 flights in his life, and has driven across the country along Route 66.

We've been through bad times and good times. This little man has been there for me when many of my friends** were not.

He is my running buddy, a furry shoulder to cry on, frisbee dog extraordinaire, and a never ending bundle of happiness.
I love you Churro Bear!

Tonight he will get a couple of chicken tacos for dinner. :)

Happy Birthday, Feliz Aniversário!

*because I got him at 10 weeks old and counted back on the calendar. January 15, 2005 is his presumed birthday.

**ill save my friends rant for another day.
