I don’t normally post pet or personal-type photos, but The Dog turned nine years old today, and during our walk this morning, I had one of those “how time flies” moments. I’ve been noticing that he’s as pokey as me during our walks these days– and considering I’m about eight and 1/2 months pregnant and waddle around at a speed of roughly 1.2 miles per hour, that’s saying a lot.
So I thought I’d post this picture, taken just this morning, as a Happy Birthday shout-out. When The Dog was a nine month-old puppy, we found out he had hip dysplasia in both hips and the vet specialist told us that he’d see us in six months for hip replacement surgery. Here we are at nine years, and no surgery yet (fingers crossed that keeps up):
And because the temperature in Chicago dropped twenty degrees since yesterday and Fall suddenly seems to be upon us, I couldn’t resist posting this photo as well:
Have a great Labor Day weekend, everyone!
