HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY!
Major had to send me an email to remind me he is three years old today - shame on me for not remembering! And he is in training with his dad as a St. John's Ambulance Therapy Dog, preparing to bring happiness to people in assisted living situations. What a great vocation for an SPCA alumni.
Wow - three years since those little tiny wiggle butts appeared courtesy of their butternut squash mama. What a fostering experience THAT was! If you missed those posts, here's the post of the day they were born (well, actually the day after, as the day of their birth was rather - um - busy!), and here's the post the day they left.
And this one is Major Bo's own very, very, very special story. Have your kleenex ready. It is quite possibly my favourite story on the whole blog.
I smile every time I think of those pups, and I hope they are all doing well - and Lucy too, of course!
