Birthday Boy

On this day eight years ago was a Sunday. In fact it was Mother’s Day.

I was visiting our dear friends Sherry and Larry in Texas and they were making a big fuss over me because I was pregnant and it was technically my first Mother’s day. My husband was making a big fuss of me over the phone. I felt happy and special and then I got an email.

It was from Debra informing me that Jet gave birth to ten healthy pups and our baby boy we were on the waiting list for will be available for pick up in 8 weeks time.

Can you believe 8 years have past since? I still remember sleeping on the floor with Max when we first brought him home cause he missed his mommy, walking him every morning with my friend Pauline, the first time he met Julian and licked his cheek, the day we collected him from the airport as he arrived from England. I remember him protecting Julian from a dog that attack him at the park, sulking when Bruce first came to our lives and the day he finally let him snuggle with him. Max means so much to us all, more then we ever imagined.

Wishing you my sweet boy a very happy 8th Birthday and so very many more to come!

    I too remember it well, and cannot believe where the 8 years have gone to !!! I lost Max’s mum in September 2013 a few days before her 10th Birthday and it broke my heart…… it makes me very happy though when I see her babies and especially Max …. I can still see him now running towards our gate and clearing it like a racehorse, just like his mum but much much bigger xx
