Happy 7th Birthday to the dog of my heart!
Baby Spencer came home to me at 8 weeks old and my life was never to be the same. I knew nothing of obedience trials or that seemingly sane people actually drove hours every week to go out in the country and to let their dogs play with sheep. I had seen agility on ESPN but it never entered my mind that I would ever give it a try myself.
I had no idea that there was a whole world of people out there doing all this craziness or that so many of those people would come to be my best friends.
This sweet, scary smart, obstinate, full of himself creature makes me laugh everyday. Happy Birthday, butternut!
And Happy Birthday to brother Wilson and the rest of Will and Josie's kids.
p.s. Watch for Spencer to make his dog show debut! Now that he is 7, I can enter his little ball-less self in Veteran's Sweeps!
